Forget the typical recipe headnote about precious, organic ingredients--these stories are the real deal, each a first-person, firsthand look inside prison life, a scared-straight reality complementing the offbeat recipes., Ramen: Whether you're doing time in a state prison or four years in a state university, these pre-packaged noodles are an integral part of cultural life. They're cheap, delicious, and always available. And ramen is growing in culinary popularity, appearing more and more on restaurant menus. Those square blocks of noodles have become a trendy thing. But in prison, ramen isn't about trend, or just about cheap eating; it takes on even more meaning. Prisoners get creative with ramen dishes, adding ingredients they can purchase at the canteen, and share ramen-based "spreads" that secure bonds of friendship and loyalty behind bars. In Prison Ramen , real-life recipes from prisoners are combined with stories of life in jail. Co-author Gustavo "Goose" Alvarez has collected stories from his combined total of nearly 15 years in California's most notorious prisons, introducing us to the life and language of prison and his recipes show the creativity that is born of limited ingredients and simple cooking methods. His childhood friend, actor Clifton Collins Jr, reached out to his celebrity friends, and has added prison stories - and recipes - from Orange is the New Black'sTaryn Manning, actor Danny Trejo, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, and others. The recipes are surprising in their ingredients, and in their range - here are salads, sandwiches, soups, rice dishes, snacks, and more. The stories run the gamut of laugh-out-loud funny to rueful to outrageous to heartfelt; these are funny, heart-warming, shocking, thought provoking stories of life in prison, accompanied by wild and creative ways to fix up ramen - a celebration of the universal need to be fed, and to share food with others. A few examples: J-Walking Ramen , from Slash, Guns N Roses'award-winning hard rock guitarist. The story: in the early days of Guns N Roses, Slash was arrested in LA for an unpaid jay-walking tickets from his high school days. He spent a night in jail before Axl Rose posted his bail. The recipe: Chicken Ramen + scallions + sriracha hot sauce + minced pork (a favorite snack of Slash's while on the tour bus) Hot Chili Corn Chip Pie , from Goose Alvarez The story: As an 18-year old in the LA County Jail, Goose receives a "Dear John" letter just as LA erups in riots over Rodney King's beating. As racial tension brews within the prison, he distracts himself with a good meal. The recipe: Beef Ramen + pouch of Chili Beans Hot! + chopped summer sausage + corn chips Orange Porkies , from Goose Alvarez The story: A surprising bond is formed between two rival gangs over this spread. The recipe: Chili Ramen + white rice + 1⁄2 a bag of pork skins + orange flavored punch As Samuel L. Jackson explains in the foreword, "These stories and recipes made me smile and laugh out loud with joy, memory, and awe, all born from a bond of pure hunger!" You don't need to have spent any time behind bars to be affected by these stories or to break out a square of ramen and cook up your own spread.
