PEW PEW PEW PASS THE POPCORN!
There’s nothing quite like seeing a Star Wars movie up on the big theater screen, with a big ol’ bucket of popcorn and your favorite fellow fans by your side. Except, what’s to be done for those months when there isn’t a Star Wars film in the theaters? Why, marathon movie viewing parties on your home couch, of course! (We won’t get into what order you should watch the existing films in, or which you should skip – that’s your own business to argue about in the comments.)
Serve up a big bowl of popcorn at your next viewing party, in this ceramic serving bowl featuring two of the series’ most notorious fighters, the X-Wing and the TIE Fighter, engaged in a dogfight amongst the stars. On the inside of the bowl, the Star Wars logo will reveal itself as you and your guests start to eat up the contents. Generously sized at 10 inches in diameter by 4 inches deep, it’ll hold a whole lot of tasty treats. Or you could use it as an oversized cereal bowl with lots of blue milk – no judgment here.
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
