Autumn is a great time to delve into the more warming, home-style dishes of Japanese cuisine. Given the chance, I could eat ramen once a week and Instagram is awash with great tips on how to perfect your best version. The next few pages contain recipes for some other Japanese-inspired dishes you can try at home – I don’t claim that they are 100% authentic, but they are totally delicious. If you fancy a different, punchy, flavourful noodle dish, try the curry udon – it’s super simple, even when you make your own curry roux.
