Bros can not live on bread alone. We could live on ramen, but after awhile, it will all start to taste like crap. Unless a bro gets creative.
Gustavo “Goose” Alvarez and Clifton Collins Jr. are childhood friends. One guy is an ex-con (we’re assuming Goose) and is now living in Mexico and the other is a successful Hollywood character actor. During his time in lock-up, Alvarez learned ways to make the ever popular Ramen noodles taste better than normal. Alvarez and Collins hooked up (not in the prison way) and enlisted the help of some of Collins famous friends to create Prison Ramen: Recipes And Stories From Behind Bars.
A unique and edgy cookbook, Prison Ramen takes readers behind bars with more than 65 ramen recipes and stories of prison life from the inmate/cooks who devised them, including celebrities like Slash from Guns n’ Roses and the actor Shia LaBeouf.
Instant ramen is a ubiquitous food, beloved by anyone looking for a cheap, tasty bite—including prisoners, who buy it at the commissary and use it as the building block for all sorts of meals. Think of this as a unique cookbook of ramen hacks. Here’s Ramen Goulash. Black Bean Ramen. Onion Tortilla Ramen Soup. The Jailhouse Hole Burrito. Orange Porkies—chili ramen plus white rice plus ½ bag of pork skins plus orange-flavored punch. Ramen Nuggets. Slash’s J-Walking Ramen (with scallions, Sriracha hot sauce, and minced pork).
Forget flowery writing about precious, organic ingredients—these stories are a first-person, firsthand look inside prison life, a scared-straight reality to complement the offbeat recipes.
Prison and college are actually very similar except a bro can get away with so much more in prison. Grab a copy of Prison Ramen: Recipes And Stories From Behind Bars now.
