    Every single one of the short chapters is punctuated by a really rather awful recipe for ramen The ingredients hardly vary but the men must make the most of what they have food and life The chapters are written by the author by various famous people and by inmates and provide the truest picture of prison life I have ever readThe writing might be simple but there is real emotion and experience behind them These are not the stories of journalists going under cover sociologists former prison warders ex prisoners trying to make it as authors or the stories of lifers who've discovered a literary bent and are protesting their injustice through a book I've read all those books and I enjoy them and learn from them But they don't make me feelThis book made me feel Their lives are awful The punishment for crime is supposed to be loss of liberty not being sent to an institution that will rob them of their dignity and punish them in completely inhumane ways without any means of defending themselves In effect running a lawless society a society not subject to the laws that sent them thereSociopaths psychopaths gang members the sadly deranged the elderly the inadeuate they are all united by their desire to have some small means of self determination and something better than prison slop to eat hence Prison RamenIt's a stunningly original book A couple of hours read if that but an impression that will stay with me for a long time

    Ramen recipes paired with stories from 'behind the wall' about prisoners having to struggle to survive Some of the stories are heartbreaking individuals finding that they must do things they never would choose to do in an atmosphere of sudden violence stealing shoes from a fellow prisoner This book would also be helpful to college students because the recipes are so simple and only reuire access to a microwave

    Chicken Soup for the Soul meets Shawshank Redemption meets Iron Chef with a forward by Samuel L Jackson Prison Ramen was an interesting mix There was heart than I anticipated The authors asked a lot of famous people to contribute their stories from behind bars andor their own Ramen recipe The Stories run the gamut interesting violent serious heartwarming appalling and humorous Each story will open your eyes to an element of life behind bars I was actually interested in each short storyThe People Those that shared their stories spent anywhere from a few hours to life imprisonment behind bars You'll hear stories from Slash Shia LaBeouf Taryn Manning Danny Trejo as well as people the authors knowApparently The Recipes The ingredients vary but most are made with whatever could be scrounged up from the commissary Some ingredients might be brought in by family bribed from a kitchen worker or grown in The Yard You might have to save the ingredients over time and cooking is interesting Ramen Tamales Yes this is really a thing Ramen Burger Something like this Ramen agra For getting conjugal ready Koinonia Ramen The Stone Soup of Prison Ramen Basically a group of people throw whatever they have to contribute in a clean garbage bag From Ramen to processed meats to chips or pork rinds to mayo packets sriracha you name it It all goes in Then add the hottest tap water you can Set it aside to cook and swell Open it up and feast together There are recipes than you can imagine There's even Parole Cheesecake and Ding Dong Cake Have some hard boiled eggs to mix in Ramen? There are a few recipes that aren't Ramen based such as Prison Hooch called Pruno Which is a big deal but very very nasty Chances are you won't make most of these recipes but it might inspire you to create something from almost nothing The stories are worth a read Oh and ladies beware Thank you Netgalley and Workman Publishing for a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review

    So I happen to know a friend who has been to our local county jail a couple of times You can imagine how awkward it was for me to ask Hey can I ask you some things about jail food because this seems kind of crazyFortunately he agreed and assured me that Ramen Tamales are an actual thing as are 'nuts to butts' I also heard a few stories about jail that are pretty much only funny in retrospect but still good stories What I like about this book is that it's not just a recipe book A prison recipe book with no context is boring But the authors give us context in the form of a story before every recipe Yeah there are also letters and things from a few celebrities but it doesn't need them The stories and recipes stand on their ownOverall I'm still scared to give it as a gift for fear of being offensive BUT I will definitely be buying it for a few high school grads I know who have never been to prison but will most likely be living off Ramen for a couple of yearsA big thank you to NetGalley and the Publishers for a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review

    I enjoyed this I really like cookbooks where the food is cooked in clever ways I'm impressed how the prisoners figured out how to cook in their cells It was uite ingenious I got some good tips from the book I also use the soak method to cook my ramen I heat up water in my electric kettle pour the boiling water over a bowl of ramen cover it let it soak walk away and come back For some reason it never occurred to me to break up the ramen brick before soaking it I even have a culinary degree What the hell is wrong with me? The book told me to do it so now my ramen takes less time to cook and is in smaller pieces for when I make ramelets ramen omeletsThere's recipes than just ramen in the book I have drank a slight variation on the Belushi coffee I used mocha salted caramel creamer cause that's what I had Maybe of a Jim than a John Belushi It does work on perking you the hell up You feel bad or sleepy make a Belushi You'll feel better about life

    Review Prison Ramen 5 out of 5 stars You might ask what the hecks wrong with me; managing to review two books in as many days after months of nothing Well part of that is down to Prison Ramen being structured in an easy bite sized way These short stories are for the most part each an important life lesson and an eye opener as to how cheap life can really be in some of the American prisons One of the two pagers is a section from a film script but mostly these are real accounts Some are snippets of the joy that people manage to find in the most adverse situations the makeshift birthday cake was inventive but a lot of them are melancholy and one particularly made my heart hang heavy Not a book to be read if you want escapism deliberate pun there or entertainment but some real thoughts that you never know might stop someone from doing something stupid someday because some of these pages are heartbreaking I leave you with one of the recipes which is worth keeping in your arsenal The Belushi useful also for diabetics on a serious sugar crash and similar is taught to us in First Aid Lifesaving Coffee Once at the LACounty jail I saw a man lying on the floor shivering and sweating like crazy You could tell he was a big time addict by looking at his arms Another inmate brought him this special drink the Belushi About 30 minutes later after finishing it he was calm and composed enough to walk over and thank the man I asked the lifesaving coffee maker why he called it a Belushi He explained that John Belushi was a great comedian who died of a drug overdose I guess having a sanity saving sugar filled coffee drink named after you isn't a bad way to be remembered It's loaded with sugar and helps with the symptoms of heroine detoxing  1 Tablespoon instant coffee granules 1 tablespoon sugar 3 tablespoons French vanilla creamer 1 cup boiling water 12 full size 52 gram or 1 miniature Milky Way bar Place coffee in large mug Add the sugar and creamer Add the water and stir well Then add the Milky Way and drink immediately while the candy bar melts

    A cookbook for ramen and ways to improve on the instant noodles would have been a novelty read except this book also contains stories and anecdotes from those who spent time behind bars and those together make an interesting combination much like the recipes featured that works The title and idea behind the book caught my attention I have little interest in innovative ways to make ramen but I was intrigued about the stories The anecdotes are mainly from the 2 co authors but there are stories from celebrities including Samuel L Jackson Danny Trejo and others The stories are kept bite size no than a page only a few times maybe another page or 2 Each story contains some aspect of prison life captured candidly and compellingly I wouldn't know if they were exaggerated or made up but some of things are incredible to read about It's a whole other world in prison There are some pretty clever ways to make the most of their situation or outsmart the prison guards like transferring notes from a prison to another A good amount of work went into this book to present the stories and recipes in a way that showcases them Each story is a lesson learned and paired with a recipe that matches the story The colors font and designs all go together with the jail theme The recipes are interesting to look at in their innovativeness who'd have thought to try those combinations but desperate times and limited resources really force people to be creative There are a few non ramen recipes that show some of that same innovativeness uick read

    I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway Thank you to the author and publisher for the opportunity to read and review this bookWhat a completely original idea for a cookbookalthough I wouldn't necessarily categorize it one It's a pleasing mixture of very raw prison stories and real ramen recipes The recipes tend to have ingredients I wouldn't normally buy or eat vienna sausages pork rinds etc but some of them did sound okay I think the real value in this book can be seen by those of us that have never been unfortunate or stupid enough to end up in prison It's a very detailed glimpse of life in the prison systemand maybe a few lunch ideas as well

    I actually really enjoyed the intelligent voices and stories shared throughout this book I would recommend this to Latinx people who know a little about prison life because your 'uncle' went to jail for a few Interesting way that they make ramen into different meals but it definitely sounded yucky haha
