Ramen For Beginners by Robin Donovan is a great little recipe book if you are looking to learn how to make ramen from scratch in your kitchen. It contains both the basics as well as delving into more complicated recipes. The recipes are thorough and easy to follow but will require a run to your local Japanese supermarket (or a virtual trip to Amazon) as some of the ingredients will be difficult to find in your local chain grocery store.
