Comic Kitchen highlights the eating habits of different superheroes and tells their story through the medium of food. There’s something powerful about eating food that makes you feel closer to your heritage. For Rose Wilson, heritage is an integral part of her identity. As the daughter of Deathstroke, Ravager has needed to find a way to step out of her father’s shadow and forge her own legacy.
To do this, Rose has leaned into her Cambodian roots and looked to understand the life of her mother. With that in mind, I’ve come up with a Cambodian inspired menu that mixes western and eastern influences together. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Ravager”
Comic Kitchen is a series that puts the spotlight on superheroes and their eating habits. It also brings awareness to food from different cultures. Many countries outside of America have superheroes that defend their nation. Turkey is no different and Selma Tolon, AKA Janissary, has dedicated herself to protecting her country.
No matter how far away from home she was, Janissary would take pride in eating traditional Turkish cuisine. As a former doctor, she’s fully aware of the importance of eating a balanced diet to remain healthy. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Janissary”
Food is a great way of helping people get in touch with their culture. Someone born to parents from different countries might have only been able to taste a certain kind of cooking. For example, Nadia Van Dyne, the daughter of Hank Pym and a Hungarian woman called Maria Trovaya, may have grown up with limited exposure to her Hungarian roots.
Nadia’s childhood was spent in the Red Room and she only managed to escape after gaining Pym Particles. Determined to learn more about her parents, Nadia became the second Wasp. After escaping from the Red Room, she would have likely wanted to try as many different dishes as possible. For this edition of Comic Kitchen, I’ve put together a Hungarian inspired menu that would help Nadia feel closer to her heritage. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Nadia Van Dyne”
Superheroes spend a lot of their time fighting crime, so it’s no wonder that many of them work up an appetite.

A native of Hawaii and member of the X-Men, Loa grew up with some of the most diverse dishes on the planet. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Loa”
Brunch is one of the greatest inventions in the history of food. The combination of breakfast and lunch is a recipe for success, with various dishes bringing together the best of both worlds. Brunch can be a sacred ritual to some and a guilty pleasure to others, and for Cullen Bloodstone, brunch represents the latter. This edition of Comic Kitchen focuses on the eating habits of the youngest member of the Bloodstone family and examines why he’s a secret brunch lover. Continue reading “Comic Kitchen: Cullen Bloodstone”
Travelling is one of the best ways to expand your knowledge of the world. But it’s not the only way to embrace a new culture. Exploring local communities and experiences are eye-opening in their own right. I’m fascinated by Japan and there are plenty of Japanese related activities in my home city of Manchester. There’s restaurants, bars, societies and exhibits dedicated to celebrating the Land of the Rising Sun. It’s why I’ve put together a guide for anyone who wants to explore Manchester through the lens of Japanese culture. Continue reading “The Definitive Guide To Japanese Manchester”
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”
