Location: Sarah Mal’s house!!
In 2004, Momofuku Noodle Bar opened in a tiny, stark space in Manhattan’s East Village. Its young chef-owner, David Chang, worked the line, serving ramen and pork buns to a mix of fellow restaurant cooks and confused diners whose idea of ramen was instant noodles in Styrofoam cups. It would have been impossible to know it at the time—and certainly Chang would have bet against himself—but he, who had failed at almost every endeavor in his life, was about to become one of the most influential chefs of his generation, driven by the question, “What if the underground could become the mainstream?”
Robin recommended this wonderful book and Sarah has offered to host us that night so that we can cook a meal together! It’s a don’t miss book group if you ask me!
The library will order copies for us and I know some of you will listen to them but a few of us already have copies so ask around if you’re looking for one. As always, I look forward to our next meeting and to reading these next few books. So many books, never enough time…
Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy this perfect weather for curling up next to a fire and reading a good book.
