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”

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.

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”
