About this project
"Noah Mansfield, chef de cuisine at Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Company, and Karina Martinez, a mixologist at The Jungle Bird and Bottle & Barlow, wanted to dig deeper into their passion for cooking and hospitality in their down time, but they didn’t feel ready for a brick-and-mortar operation. So they started Ramen Club 916, a supper club for friends and noodle lovers. Part pop-up, part speakeasy, Ramen Club 916 is an outlet for the two friends to tinker in the kitchen in ways they can’t at their day jobs. Since its debut in May, the invite-only club meets monthly at rotating locations in the city. Club members are asked only to donate a few dollars—or a pack of beer—since Martinez and Mansfield pay for each event out of their own pockets."
I had the honor of shooting multiple Ramen Club events and documenting the wonders not only during this event but before and behind the scenes.
