DO NOT PUT IN OVEN
We’re pretty sure these backpacks are 100% good Kuchi Kopis. But we can’t be entirely sure, and we can’t keep an eye on all the Kuchi Kopis at our warehouse right now. That means we’re going to have to rely on you.
Snuggly soft, this Kuchi Kopi backpack can accompany you everywhere (whether you like it or not). And it’s a lot less weird than carrying a nightlight or a toothbrush around with you. But you could potentially carry both of those in this backpack.
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
