Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Pork belly — For a more tender texture, marinate the pork belly in a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, and ginger for at least 1 hour before cooking.
  • Soft-boiled eggs — To achieve the perfect soft-boiled eggs, cook them for exactly 6 minutes and then immediately transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  • Shiitake mushrooms — For enhanced flavor, sauté the mushrooms in a combination of butter and sesame oil.
  • Ramen noodles — If you can't find fresh ramen noodles, you can substitute with dried ramen noodles. Cook them according to the package instructions before adding them to the broth.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra touch of elegance, garnish the ramen with edible flowers or microgreens.
  • Experiment with different toppings such as seared scallops, truffle oil, or foie gras for a truly luxurious experience.
  • To add a hint of umami, sprinkle some nori seaweed flakes on top of the ramen before serving.
  • Don't overcook the noodles. They should have a slight chewiness to them for the perfect texture.
  • If you prefer a spicier ramen, add a drizzle of chili oil or a sprinkle of shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven spice) on top.

Serving advice

Serve the haute cuisine ramen in beautiful, shallow bowls to showcase the vibrant colors and intricate arrangement of the toppings. Provide chopsticks and spoons for an authentic dining experience. Encourage your guests to mix the ingredients together before enjoying each mouthful.

Presentation advice

When presenting the haute cuisine ramen, ensure that the toppings are artfully arranged and evenly distributed. The broth should be poured gently over the noodles to maintain their visual appeal. Sprinkle some finely chopped green onions and a pinch of sesame seeds on top for an added touch of elegance.
