Recipe :: Ramen

Guys; it’s so cold. Like really effing cold. If you’re anything like me you’re a big baby; your extremities change colors, no amount of layers seem pervious to the frigid air and wind, and no amount of coffee or tea seems like enough. Days like these have me craving a slurp-y dinner that’s easy yet substantial and will put me into a food coma effective enough to bring me into the next day of arctic living. Things I’ve been noshing on lately? Soup and grilled cheese, classic pasta, and ramen. Ramen you say!? Yes, but fear not; this is not your college ramen (well, it is, but upgraded).

3 packets of Ramen (1 per person/serving)
1/2 an onion
2 cloves of garlic
meat of your choosing (we chose tofu)
1 table spoon of miso
8-12  cups of broth (we use vegetable)
2 TBSP of soy sauce
2 TBSP of sesame oil
1 branch of ginger
a bunch of cilantro, leaves broken up
a handful of scallions, chopped
1 egg per person
Siriacha sauce to taste

Begin by bringing your vegetable broth and miso to a boil in a large pot. Once they have come to a rolling boil, add in your full branch of ginger, the soy sauce, sesame oil, and let that simmer for a bit. We tend to do an hour+; the more it simmers the better it tastes!

Once you have your broth to your tasting it’s time to add your noodles (throw out the included sauce pack) and let simmer until noodles are soft and separated. While that boils slice your onion, dice your garlic, and chop your meat and sautee in a frying pan. Add to your noodles and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Next, fry (or poach) an egg per person.

Dish out the noodles and broth, placing the egg on top. Garnish with cilantro, scallions, and sriracha.

Enjoy, and stay warm my winter-weather-worn friends!

Women’s History Month

Little is it known that March is Woman’s History Month, to celebrate the history of women, and how far we’ve come from our kitchen bound ancestor’s.

My school, LIM College hosted an event recognizing women in the fashion industry with three speakers talking about how they came to be, how they deal with the pressures of life, and advice.

The event began at 6:30 with a catered dinner in one of the school’s lounges. Salad, mini spring rolls (Veggie!) desserts, jumbo coconut shrimp; it was a well put together palette pleasing set. Shortly after we were moved to another lounge, set up with chairs so as to listen and interact with the panel of speakers.

The speakers were Verneda White, of the awareness raising brand Human Intonation, Renee a freelance industry professional, and LIM Alumni Erica Young of Madison Plus.

It was great to listen to how all these successful women came to be, to hear their stories of their struggles and rises, and industry experiences. A moving story was eldest speaker Renee, who during the early childhood of her children, would bring them to work with her allowing them to sleep on piled up fabrics. Her children, immediately immersed in the industry, were well education on textiles and fabrics by the time they were 10 she says, which is astounding to me.

After the panel guests and professionals were allowed to mix and mingle as well as network. Gift bags were handed out, supplied by Betsey Johnson with gifts from Women’s Wear Daily and LIM college, as well as fun little trinkets from Betsey Johnson.
