FIELD OF HEAVEN
The Spanish name “Campo del Cielo” (“Field of Heaven”) refers to an old legend from the natives of this region of Argentina, that the iron they made their weapons from originally came from a mass that had fallen from the sky. The European conquerors dismissed this silly tale, and searched for the iron vein in the ground or a volcanic source of the metal. But while they were digging around in the dirt, they should have been looking upward, to the stars, for the natives really did know where the Campo del Cielo iron had come from…
You’ll never forget to look up at the heavens above when you wear this Spiral Galaxy Meteorite Pendant. A solid sterling silver spiral reminiscent of our own Milky Way galaxy, that holds at its center a genuine Campo del Cielo meteorite, dropped from the sky. Presented in an elegant jewelry gift box, this necklace is the gift you can give that comes with a history. A *long* history.
For our customers with nickel allergies: This pendant is made from solid nickel-free sterling silver. However, Campo del Cielo meteorites are naturally about 7% nickel. The sterling silver pendant fully backs the meteorite, so it generally will not be touching your skin.
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
