The Story of Momofuku Ando, a Picture Book Talk & Signing
Andrea Wang loves noodles, food, and noodling about food. She is the author of The Nian Monster. Andrea will read from and sign Magic Ramen: The Story of Momofuku Ando ($17.99 Little Bee Books). Inspiration struck when Momofuku Ando spotted the long lines for a simple bowl of ramen following World War II. Magic Ramen tells the true story behind the creation of one of the world's most popular foods.
Every day, Momofuku Ando would retire to his lab--a little shed in his backyard. For years, he'd dreamed about making a new kind of ramen noodle soup that was quick, convenient, and tasty for the hungry people he'd seen in line for a bowl on the black market following World War II. Day after day, Ando experimented. Night after night, he failed. With persistence, creativity, and a little inspiration, Ando succeeded. This is the true story behind one of the world's most popular foods.
