Ivan Ramen to Appear in U.S.-Japan Council Webinar

Culinary Exchange & Serving Communities During a Crisis

Tuesday, June 23 from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Live Via Zoom

Admission: Free (Suggested donation: $25)

Sharing a meal is an age-old act of bonding and fellowship, and sharing cuisine across borders serves as a way to connect communities and cultures.

The U.S.-Japan Council presents this webinar, which will feature two world-class chefs and restaurateurs who will share what inspired them to a life of building and bridging communities through culinary exchange across the U.S.-Japan relationship. They will also discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on their restaurants and businesses, and how they have continued to serve communities during the crisis.

Chef Ivan Orkin, Chef/Restaurateur and Owner of Ivan Ramen, will be one of the speakers. His pop up at Gotham West Market, Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, is temporarily closed during the pandemic, but New Yorkers can order online through Ivan Ramen’s website for delivery and takeout of his Lower East Side restaurant, Ivan Ramen.

Chef Mark Noguchi, Co-Founder & Executive Chef of Pili Group, will also be a part of the panel. Nicole A. Velasco, Business Development Lead, NORESCO, will serve as moderator.
