Ramen Week June 2024

Mastering the Art of Ramen: This Week's Culinary Adventure

This week at JCI, our students delved into the fascinating world of ramen making, focusing on the essential element that forms the soul of this beloved dish: the broth. With keen interest and dedication, they explored the complexities of creating a perfect ramen broth, specifically focusing on shoyu-based varieties.

Shoyu-Based Ramen Broth

Shoyu, or soy sauce, is a cornerstone of Japanese cuisine, and its use in ramen broth adds a rich, umami flavor that is both comforting and complex. Our students learned the delicate balance required to create a shoyu-based ramen broth, combining soy sauce with other ingredients to achieve a deep, savory taste.

Chicken Bone Broth

In addition to the traditional shoyu broth, our students also crafted a shoyu-based broth from chicken bones. This method involves simmering chicken bones for hours to extract a rich and flavorful base, which is then enhanced with soy sauce. The result is a lighter yet equally flavorful broth, offering a different but equally satisfying ramen experience.

Throughout the week, students honed their skills, understanding the importance of patience and precision in the broth-making process. By the end of the week, they had not only mastered the techniques but also gained a deeper appreciation for the artistry involved in creating a perfect bowl of ramen.

Stay tuned for more updates on our culinary adventures at JCI as we continue to explore the diverse and delicious world of Japanese culinary cuisine.
