Wagamama Cookbooks, Tried them anyone?

We've eaten in Wagamama restaurants in London and Amsterdam, like the food very much.  Anyone tried the food and if so, have you tried their cookbooks and do you feel they're worth buying?

Re: Wagamama Cookbooks, Tried them anyone?

I've eaten in the one in London. I liked the chili ramen.

I have tried making the chicken-based ramen broth, the basis for their noodle soup dishes. Personally I found it a little light, but otherwise it's workable.

The recipe came from their first book, Way of the Noodle. I think it was worth the buy, if only for their analysis of the  movie Tampopo.

MrsP, I have bought a couple of them for one of my daughters. She loves Wagamamma's . Now I am not sure if she has used the books much as she is in a student flat , but I do know that she has read them.

I am sure that she would lend you one if you wanted.
Where abouts in the world are you at the moment ?
You and MrP always seem to be  zipping around the globe !

OK MrsP . I have just spoken to Alice, she said that the recipes in the Wagamamas cook book are what they serve in the restaurants but you do need 'oodles' of ingredients for most of them and some  are a bit tricky to follow.
What she has cooked from the books have always worked out well.

Her verdict was that they were worth getting.

Thanks mummza and thanks to Alice too!  I may borrow my niece's copies next spring when I'm home and look them over.  We're in Copenhagen.  It is very cold here, the winds are fierce, even the snow can't find a place to hold on.  I'm good at improvising.  You are so kind! smile  thumbsup  kiss

Thanks also Urban Possum.  Have you made any other Japanese noodle bowl stocks from scratch with other recipes?  I have favorites in Japan, but their recipes are guarded secrets. wink

Chrissa, it's different from what you get in Japan, good though, I never get past the noodle bowls to try any of the curries.  They have decent gyoza's and excellent fresh fruit/veg drinks.  The prices are reasonable, especially for London.
