As the acclaimed dish-du-jour of Japanese restaurant, Nobu, black cod miso is reserved for wealthy City workers. But for those who can’t afford to splurge £42.50 on a main course, why not learn to make this Asian foodie delight at home for a fraction of the cost?

Raring for Ramen, I dashed over to Aldgate to uncover the culinary secrets of the Far East.
