Suggestions re Japanese noodles?

Recommended Posts

I'm finding a whole lot of books with "open packet and boil" and very scant info on "weigh flour and add..."  Any suggestions on techniques and recipes for making the actual soba, udon, ramen etc noodles?

There is a recipe for soba  noodles In the book Takashi’s Noodles. And the Cooking with Dog series on YouTube has a recipe for udon noodles.  I am also pretty sure there is a recipe kicking around for making Ramen or for using an alkali to improve the texture of a the noodles to make them resemble Ramen.   Cannot remember off the top of my head.

I have the hard copy edition of this great book although it’s not the most up-to-date one. But I was thrilled to find another book that he had written which I was unaware of until now:  Practical Japanese Cooking. 

 Unfortunately neither are available in Kindle editions but I have added the second one to my wish list. Thanks.

I picked up a nicely priced copy of the old version of Japanese Cooking, and leafing through it gave me the distinct feeling I need to read the whole thing closely, rather than my usual browse for a likely recipe and get cooking.  MFK Fisher's fault - the lyrical intro sucked me right in.

Reddit has a sub forum https://old.reddit.com/r/ramen/ that I've found very helpful. Ramen_Lord has numerous recipes there, and goes into making noodles with a lot of detail. I use his recipe for making Sapporo style noodles and we're very happy with the results.

As I recall, the new edition was not changed from the original - the new preface says the original text is still valid and didn't need updating.

Yes I think the only changes were prefaces and possibly photographs added.  I do not believe the original text was revised in anyway.
