Tim shares his love for Ramen

BY TIM ANDERSON
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 12, 2017


Tim Anderson
 
is the youngest ever winner of Masterchef UK and has a serious passion for Japanese soul food, which you can see for yourself if you visit him at his restaurant Nanban in Brixton, London.

In this PechaKucha given at Vol. 15 of the London series Tim shares his love for Ramen, the ultimate Japanese soul food! Tim's passion had the audience drooling and I think its safe to say had the audience went away and ordered a bowl of this delicious cuisine shortly after the event wrapped up - the London PechaKucha team certainly did! Mm..mmm...mmmmm...
