After a year and a half of hard work (and many, many bowls of noodles), we are proud to present Volume 02: Ramen. We explore the familiar carb-broth combo in its larger cultural context, while zeroing in on the specific experiences of ramen consumption — in other words, how people relate to ramen.

Produced in collaboration with a group of talented writers, recipe developers, and illustrators, the stories in this book run the gamut from the challenges of halal ramen and the rise of a tiny family-run noodle-making business, to meditations on searching for home in a bowl of ramen and the experience of eating ramen in space. 

With original cover art of hand-drawn noodles foil-stamped in gold, by Editor-at-Large Stanley Sun. 

Here’s your chance to grab Volume 02: Ramen in print!
