Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Instant Ramen | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Nov 29, 2018
  • Claire. Is. Back. AGAIN. And this time she is attempting to make gourmet instant ramen. Everybody loves instant ramen, with its ludicrously salty, umami-rich spice packets and its impossibly wavy fried noodle bricks. Can Claire make a fancy version of this 70%-of-your-daily-sodium snack?

      An important detail about instant noodles is the fact that they are flash fried, that means that they are cooked in very hot oil for a very short amount of time, it is also a part of what helps them to become wavy.

      Honestly good prepared drinkable meals for seniors would sell huge if they taste good. Ensure and other drinkable nutrition are all sweet and baby food itself isn't seasoned to taste appealing to an adult.

      @BJ Murray the Half-Sour Saffitz shirt is Claire merch. It was the nickname she got in Brad's pickle ep. I assume it's turned into a thing since then, if they made a shirt for it

    okay but like serving sizes don't actually represent an actual serving. It's usually more so an easy way to measure it because the numbers for the calories work all nice and pretty.

    Well a bit more than half a year late but.. airfrying is just using an oven with a fan, or if you're into fancy words, a _convection_ oven.
    Quite fascinating to see marketing campaigns twist already commonplace ideas into some more catchy and marketable term to the confusion of users of the, now obscured, previous term.

    How to make gourmet ramen, My at home edirion.
    step one, make ramen using half chicken packet, one cube chicken stock, 2teaspoons oil. step two, add actual ingredients, such as scallions, shredded carrot, chicken, cabbage, and corn.
    Protip, go to Japanese grocery store and look for non fried noodles. They do exist, but they will cost about a dollar or two more. If is a really good brand, I just make as is. (Especially if it come with liquid seasoning instead of powedered.)
