l'inventeur des nouilles ramen est mort

m. momofuku ando est mort vendredi dernier à l'âge de 96 ans. le new york times lui rend hommage avec une prose magnifique. je n'aurais jamais imaginé lire d'aussi belles phrases à propos de nouilles déshydratées: "ramen noodles […] are a dish of effortless purity. like the egg, or tea, they attain a state of grace through a marriage with nothing but hot water. after three minutes in a yellow bath, the noodles soften. the pebbly peas and carrot chips turn practically lifelike. a near-weightless assemblage of plastic and foam is transformed into something any college student will recognize as food, for as little as 20 cents a serving."
