this recipe vs. recipe in "escapism cooking"

we own your cookbook and were deciding between using this Food52 homemade ramen noodles recipe or the recipe in your book. we noticed several significant differences. do you recommend one method over another, and for what situations? we're making these noodles with niu rou mian. thank you!

Recipe question for: Homemade Ramen Noodles

Hello, yes they are recipes based on different approach. If you don’t have baked soda, I would use the recipe in the book. If you have baked soda and you like the taste of alkaline noodles, then I would use the one on food52 :)

thanks so much! we tried the Food52 recipe (and will try the one in your book next time, to compare). the noodles turned out so well, perfectly qq.

Hi Amie, can you remind me which of our cookbooks the recipe is in? Thanks!

i meant Mandy Lee's "The Art of Escapism Cooking" book! she also has a homemade ramen noodles recipe in there.
