Balsamic "Air"

David Chang Ramen

In October I was inspired by David Chang and his new magazine Lucky Peach, so I recently experimented with alkaline noodles and did a post about it. One of the best cooking shows I've recently seen is The Mind of a Chef. Here is the full version of episode #1 provided by PBS, which mirrors the Lucky Peach Magazine version #1. This video will send you out the door looking for a great bowl of noodles, I guarantee it !

Lucky Peach is a must have quarterly magazine for all foodies, and in case you didn't know, issue #1 is selling on Amazon for anywhere between $150.00 used (plus shipping) and $995.00 (free shipping).
