NEVER TICKLE A SLEEPING DRAGON
We think you’ll find that the best wizarding school in the world is Hogwarts. We stand by that statement. And in this case, we probably will also stand ON it. We may enjoy repping our house pride, but, when it comes right down to it, we just love the whole school. Except maybe that basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets. We could probably do without that thing.
The Harry Potter Hogwarts Rug features the Hogwarts crest and house colors on a 39″ x 70″ rug. The Hogwarts motto “Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus” under the crest, which translates to “Never tickle a sleeping dragon.” Sound advice, that.
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
