Ramenfest is back for its 4th year!
A far cry from what was once known as a cheap, college student pantry staple, ramen has taken the states by storm with new, authentic shops popping up all around the country. On Sunday, February 18th, Chef Bill Kim of urbanbelly and bellyQ will be inviting chefs from around the city to prepare their culinary interpretations of this classic dish. Over twenty chefs will try their hand at ramen and you'll have the chance to taste them all and vote for your favorite! Join us for a day filled with: ramen, booze, arts & more!
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit The Trotter Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to unite budding talent interested in the culinary arts, along with the hospitality and service industries, through a variety of mentorship programs designed to educate and inspire. Partnerships include: Careers Through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), Kendall College, Washburne Culinary Institute, plus many more.
