A cookbook for ramen and ways to improve on the instant noodles would have been a novelty read except this book also contains stories and anecdotes from those who spent time behind bars and those together make an interesting combination much like the recipes featured that works The title and idea behind the book caught my attention I have little interest in innovative ways to make ramen but I was intrigued about the stories The anecdotes are mainly from the 2 co authors but there are stories from celebrities including Samuel L Jackson Danny Trejo and others The stories are kept bite size no than a page only a few times maybe another page or 2 Each story contains some aspect of prison life captured candidly and compellingly I wouldn t know if they were exaggerated or made up but some of things are incredible to read about It s a whole other world in prison There are some pretty clever ways to make the most of their situation or outsmart the prison guards like transferring notes from a prison to another A good amount of work went into this book to present the stories and recipes in a way that showcases them Each story is a lesson learned and paired with a recipe that matches the story The colors font and designs all go together with the jail theme The recipes are interesting to look at in their innovativeness who d have thought to try those combinations but desperate times and limited resources really force people to be creative There are a few non ramen recipes that show some of that same innovativeness uick read

For all sorts of meals Think of this as a uniue cookbook of ramen hacks Here’s Ramen Goulash Black Bean Ramen Onion Tortilla Ramen Soup The Jailhouse Hole Burrito Orange Porkies chili ramen plus white rice plus ½ bag of pork skins plus orange flavored punch Ramen Nuggets Slash’s J Walking Ramen with scallions Sriracha hot sauce and minced pork Coauthors Gustavo “Goose” Alvarez and Clifton Co. So I happen to know a friend who has been to our local county jail a couple of times You can imagine how awkward it was for me to ask Hey can I ask you some things about jail food because this seems kind of crazyFortunately he agreed and assured me that Ramen Tamales are an actual thing as are nuts to butts I also heard a few stories about jail that are pretty much only funny in retrospect but still good stories What I like about this book is that it s not just a recipe book A prison recipe book with no context is boring But the authors give us context in the form of a story before every recipe Yeah there are also letters and things from a few celebrities but it doesn t need them The stories and recipes stand on their ownOverall I m still scared to give it as a gift for fear of being offensive BUT I will definitely be buying it for a few high school grads I know who have never been to prison but will most likely be living off Ramen for a couple of yearsA big thank you to NetGalley and the Publishers for a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review
