Comic Kitchen: Wolfsbane

Comic Kitchen is a series that tells the story of a superhero through the food they eat. Scottish food is some of the heartiest in the world and it’s a reflection of the people of Scotland. As a Scottish superhero, Wolfsbane is the ideal character for putting together a Highlands menu. Usually, I’d do a three-course meal. But as Wolfsbane has a large appetite, I’ve created a menu of what she’d eat throughout the day. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Wolfsbane”

Two things I enjoy are comics and food, which is why I’ve combined my interests into Comic Kitchen. The series creates a three-course menu around a superhero and highlights unique dishes.

Comic Kitchen: Huntress

Comic Kitchen is a series that brings together pop culture and food. A three-course menu is created around a superhero, helping to bring awareness to a character and food from a different culture. I’ve been looking to do an Italian menu for a while, so I decided to use Huntress. Helena Bertinelli has Sicilian roots and she’s the ideal superhero for representing the appeal of Italian cuisine. To make sure I created an authentic experience, I spent time at William Sicilian Street Food in Manchester. This resulted in a menu that highlights the uniqueness of Sicilian fare. Read on to find out about the kind of food that Huntress would enjoy eating.

Comic Kitchen is a series that creates a three-course meal around a comic character. It’s a segment that combines my love of food with my passion for pop culture.

Jason Todd is a guy who grew up on the streets, who learned to savour every morsel he could find. His appetite is something to behold, so I’ve created a menu that focuses on protein, big portions and zest. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Red Hood”

Having been bonded to a symbiote, Jubulile knows what it means to be dining for two. Her menu is made up of traditional South African dishes that are full of zest and flavour.
