Comic Kitchen: Geralt Of Rivia

One of the best ways to experience a different culture is through food, which is why Comic Kitchen exists. The segment is dedicated to creating a three course meal around a character from pop culture and telling their story through the magic of food. Over the past few months I’ve developed a taste for Polish food, so I’ve teamed up with the staff from Platzki in Manchester to create a menu for Geralt of Rivia. Geralt is a Polish icon, with The Witcher series being one of the greatest fantasy series of all time. Geralt is a man of few words and simple tastes, so the menu taps into traditional Polish food as a reflection of the Witcher’s approach to life. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Geralt Of Rivia”

Comic Kitchen: Ms Marvel

Comic Kitchen is a segment that creates a three course menu for a comic character. When it comes to experiencing another culture, food is one of the best ways to be involved, and there are plenty of diverse superheroes in the world. Ms Marvel is a great example, as she comes from a Muslim background. It’s why I’m pleased to present a Ms Marvel menu that has been done in collaboration with Carrie from Witchy Kitchen. The menu brings together Kamala Khan’s Pakistani heritage with her American upbringing. As a result, there are unique dishes packed with flavour.

Comic Kitchen: Captain America

Comic Kitchen is a segment that prepares a three course menu around a pop culture character. This edition is a special one because it marks the first time I’ve collaborated with another blogger to bring a menu to life. I worked with Manchester based Rosaleen Marmion, who runs a lifestyle and parenting website. Together we came up with a three course meal for Captain America. Given that Cap is a supersoldier, I decided on a high protein and carb based menu. The overall theme taps into Steve Rogers’ story as a kid from New York who grew up to be one of the greatest superheroes of all time.

Comic Kitchen: Hercules

Comic Kitchen is a series that focuses on the culinary habits of a character in the form of a three course menu. Some people love to eat and in the case of Greek gods, Hercules would have an appetite as mighty as his strength. Marvel’s Prince of Power is known for his boisterous approach to life, which includes an appreciation for food. I’ve come up with a Greek inspired menu that brings together simplicity and flavour, making it fit for a god. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Hercules”

Comic Kitchen: Gambit

Comic Kitchen is a series that combines food and superheroes together to create a menu based around a specific character. New Orleans is known for its eclectic cuisine and no hero represents The Big Easy’s reputation quite like Gambit. The Ragin’ Cajun is as free-spirited as they come, which means the kind of food he’d eat would have a plethora of different flavours. I’ve come up with a New Orleans inspired menu that brings the different cultures of NOLA together, while also showcasing Gambit’s love for life.

Comic Kitchen: Wolverine

Comic Kitchen is a segment that brings together delicious food and a comic character for a three course menu. A starter, a main course and a dessert are chosen, with a description of why the character would eat the food and why it reminds me of them. Today, the menu I’m putting together is for Wolverine, who loves eating as much as he does drinking. Given Wolverine’s connection to Japan, I can see him eating food that brings together the best flavours of the west and the east.

Comic Kitchen: Batman

I wanted to combine my appreciation for food and comics together by introducing a new segment on The Comic Vault called Comic Kitchen. It features a three course meal plan for a comic character made up of a starter, main and dessert. For every meal I’ll explain why it reminds me of the character and why I think they would eat it. I’ll be including meals I’ve eaten, or recipes I’ve come across on the internet. The first character to be featured in Comic Kitchen is Batman, who’s likely eaten some of the finest dishes in the world. Batman’s complexity calls for a menu that has powerful flavours.
