BE OUR GUEST
Afternoon tea is such a lovely English tradition. We have a hard time arguing with anything that gives us a little pick-me-up just when we hit that spot where we need a kick in the pants. Also, pretty much any meal that involves clotted cream, scones, and crumpets works for us.
Serve your guests in grand style with this Mrs. Potts Sculpted Ceramic Teapot that looks like it’s walked straight out of the animated version of Beauty and the Beast. But you don’t need guests – just pour yourself a cup! This teapot is guaranteed to make the whole experience sweeter, and everything tastes better when you smile, right? You provide your own little mug with a chip.
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
