“Cup” is too small a word for this beauty. How about goblet? But not one of fire. Oh no. Not that. Too many painful memories – oh Cedric, we still miss you! Maybe chalice is a better word instead? Whatever you want to call it, this is a thing made for banquets and feasts. Made to be held in hands that emerge from billowing robes. Made to be lifted to faces with flowing beards or tall pointed hats. This is a thing made for people like Albus Dumbledore.
Like, literally. It’s an incredibly detailed screen-accurate replica of Dumbledore’s own cup, as seen in the Harry Potter movies. From the intricate golden inlay designs to the blue stone in the stem, it’s an unmistakable item for any true Potter-phile’s collection – and lovely enough that even a Muggle can appreciate it. And while you can’t actually drink from it, you CAN display it with honor and claim that you’ll be entertaining a very special guest later. Perfect for hurrying off any less-than-special guests, so you can go back to watching Harry Potter!
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
