Alanna Hale Photographs Mission Chinese Food From the Inside Out
|Preparing for battle.|
Hale shot the photos for the Mission Street Food Cookbook, and though an MCF cookbook isn't in the works, she's been spending time in its kitchen every week, documenting the chaos and talent behind the kitchen door, and many of the photos on the Tumblr come from those sessions. Like this one. Or this one. These aren't the Selby's glamorous portraits of Danny Bowien and Anthony Myint. Sometimes she accompanies the photos with a story of her interactions with the cook, sometimes just a quip.
You had nothing to do this afternoon anyway, did you?
