SEE? NOBODY CARES
Now, nobody wants to be Nedry, but everybody can use a good Hawaiian shirt, right? After all, next Friday is Hawaiian shirt day, isn’t it? Hawaiian shirts make us feel like we’re on vacation. Plus, having every color imaginable involved in a print means you really can’t go wrong when figuring out what to pair with them.
But why settle for a Hawaiian shirt with just flowers on it? Amateurs. What you need is a nice selection of orchids, hibiscus, plumeria, some Parasaurolophuses, a few Ankylosauruses, assorted other dinosaurs, and the Jurassic Park logo. It’s stylish on the beach or a tropical island where you’re trying to make your escape. Just make sure that when you get back in the jeep, a Dilophosaurus hasn’t decided you’re its Uber.
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
