In January 2007, The New York Times noted the passing at age 96, of Momofuku Ando, the inventor of instant ramen (who died a billionaire). The article was titled: “Appreciations: Mr. Noodle.”
The Ramen King and I is Raskin’s memoir about how despair—and a series of bizarre adventures at Japanese restaurants—led him to confront the truth of his romantic past. Ando became his unlikely spiritual guide after Raskin devoured Ando’s books and essays (including Peace Follows from a Full Stomach and Mankind is Noodlekind). Raskin traveled to Japan to meet the food pioneer—seeking the key to a committed relationship -- only to finally "meet" him much later when he returned to attend Ando's funeral. Ultimately, Raskin discovers he’s been suffering from what Ando identified—just prior to inventing instant ramen—as the Fundamental Misunderstanding of Humanity.
Continuing in the role of Ando's student, Raskin answers questions submitted by visitors at his blog, Ramen Advice (www.ramenadvice.com). Addressed to "Dear Momofuku," second-hand spiritual guidance and wisdom, based upon the life and wisdom of Momofuku Ando's teachings, is offered. For more information, visit: www.andyraskin.com.
