How to throw a RAMEN PARTY

It’s the Japanese sensation that’s sweeping the nation… Restaurants around the UK serving big, steaming bowlfuls of flavourful stock, stretchy wheat noodles and a variety of toppings. None near you? Here’s the good news: ramen is easy to make – and it’s a great dish to serve for friends to share

THE BACKGROUND

Ramen as we know it is a Japanese dish but has its roots in China, arriving in Japan in the 19th century with Chinese immigrants. Once basic sustenance for this marginalised community, ramen has grown to become an international culinary sensation akin to sushi. And rightfully so: it’s affordable, versatile and nourishing – a dish that’s impossible not to love.

WHY RAMEN IS GREAT FOR A PARTY

It’s a mix-and-match sharing feast and everything can be prepped ahead. Japanese ramen has lots of regional variations, made with different stocks and toppings depending on its origin. See delicious. kitchen to read more, then prepare as many of the tasty toppings as you fancy – or devise your own. We went for a miso-based stock because it’s simple and quick to make, plus it’s suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Once done, it’s just a matter of cooking the noodles and assembling the toppings. Everything except the noodles can be made the day before – keep the items covered separately in the fridge and reheat, either on the hob or in the oven, to serve.

The chicken and mushrooms can be plunged quickly into the broth to heat through (as long are there are no vegetarians at the table), then removed with a slotted spoon and put in separate bowls for people to help themselves.

HOW TO SERVE IT

Put the miso broth and ramen noodles on the table, chopsticks and spoons at the ready, and encourage your guests to dig in and make their own ramen creation, adding whichever toppings they fancy.
