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: Red Hood

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. This edition is a special one because it’s the first time I’ve cooked my own dishes and that feels appropriate for Red Hood. 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”

Comic Kitchen: Jubulile Van Scotter

Comic Kitchen specialises in pairing unique food with a superhero, and a cuisine that has its own identity is South African cooking. From the way its presented, to the spices involved, South African food is delicious. I’m pleased to present a team up with Manchester restaurant Chakalaka and the South African superhero, Jubulile Van Scotter. 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.

Comic Kitchen: Daredevil

The taste of food is a powerful source of emotion, providing happiness for anyone who eats a good meal. Comic Kitchen celebrates the joy of food through creating a three-course meal for a comic character. Taste plays an important role in the life of Daredevil, whose senses are all enhanced to superhuman levels. Being the defender of Hell’s Kitchen means Matt Murdock comes into regular contact with amazing dishes. After all, New York has some of the greatest food in the world.

In order to come up for a menu for The Man Without Fear, I’ve teamed up with the Manchester restaurant Eat New York. The Daredevil menu puts a strong emphasis on taste through hearty portions and American style goodness. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Daredevil”

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”
