HOW VERY CURIOUS
There is nothing normal about attending a tea party with a Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Dormouse. You may encounter a whole variety of nonsensicals, like celebrating unbirthdays, cakes with fireworks in them, changing seats, loading up on tea, and pocket watches that are two days late. Stupid butter in the works.
If you are a fan of Alice in Wonderland, then there should be nothing normal about your morning mug either. The Alice in Wonderland Stacked Mug only looks like stacked tea cups. With three “stacked” tea cups and two handles, it’s genius design hold 20 ounces of your favorite tea (or coffee! or dormouse!). Featuring a cameo of Alice on one side and the words “Curiouser and Curiouser” on the other.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
