STORE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR MOISTURE VAPORATOR
Your mileage may vary, but there are a fair number of desert planets in the Star Wars universe, so it’s best to bring water with you always. Honestly, it’s a good rule for any of us ugly bags of mostly water. Well, crap. We mixed our Starfandoms. We’re going to go wash our mouths out with soap…
… and water from this vacuum-insulated stainless steel bottle. It’s a sleek white bottle with the words “May the Force be with you” in gold script printed over a peachy off-center Rebel logo. It keeps your blue milk cold or your hot cocoa warm for hours. Plus, we hear this style beverage container is all the rage in Cloud City these days.
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
