About the Author
Patricia Tanumihardja was born in Jakarta to Chinese Indonesian parents and raised in Singapore. Ramen for Everyone is her debut picture book. She also writes cookbooks and loves to weave food-centric themes into her stories for young people. Patricia now lives in northern Virginia with her husband and son, where she enjoys drinking bubble tea, making dumplings, and hiking. Her perfect bowl of ramen is shio (salt-flavored) ramen topped with chashu, menma (fermented bamboo shoots), and corn. Visit her at EdibleWords.com or @EdibleWords on Instagram, and don't be shy about asking for her favorite recipe!

*A Junior Library Guild Selection*
"Get ready for ramen, handmade to order and delightful to devour! . . . Tanumihardja's simple yet evocative prose draws readers into the drama and tension of the ramen making and brings to life Hiro's loving, understanding family. . . . A celebration of the complexity and care that go into making this Japanese staple."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"A hearty serving of Japanese cuisine, resilience, and family fun."-- "Booklist"
*A March/April 2023 Indie Next Pick*
"A fun and lively book about putting your own spin on traditional ramen!"--Andrea Wang, Newbery Honor-winning author of Magic Ramen and Watercress
"A story that is as warm, rich and hearty as ramen itself!"--Charlene Chua, illustrator of Amy Wu and the Perfect Bao
"Tanumihardja's picture book debut encouragingly, practically shows how much hard work goes into the food's preparation, leaving room for Hiro to try, try again, and at last put a personal spin on the traditional dish. Pate's sumi ink, pencil, and digital illustrations reproduce packaged ramen's colorful, cartoony designs, establishing a cheerfully chaotic tone across action-oriented panels." -- "Publishers Weekly"
