ABOUT The Book
Everyone loves eating ramen. Make your favorites at home with recipes from the woman behind one of the most popular ramen shops in the country.
Sarah Gavigan is otaku. Loosely translated, she's a ramen geek. Chef and Owner of Otaku Ramen, Gavigan prepares bowls of ramen that incorporate ingredients Nashville knows and loves, while staying true to traditional Japanese techniques.
Ramen Otaku shares the oft-secretive but always delicious art of ramen-making. Gavigan’s 40+ recipes—based on the bowls from her shop—are accessible to the home cook who wants to learn about the cuisine but would sometimes rather make a quick stock in a pressure cooker than labor over a vat of liquid for twenty-four hours.
Ramen Otaku will inspire a new generation of passionate home cooks to create their own personal ramen styles, built upon their own tastes and surroundings.
