Annotation: 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).
 
Co-authors Gustavo “Goose” Alvarez and Clifton Collins Jr. are childhood friends one an ex-con, now free and living in Mexico, and the other a highly successful Hollywood character actor who’s enlisted friends and celebrities to contribute their recipes and stories.
 
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.
