Edible Fly-by-Night Flower | Mary & the Witch's Flower

          "...There in the hidden corner behind the snowberries, growing in the shelter of the fallen bough, was a little clump of flowers such as she had never seen before.
          The leaves, set in stiff rosettes, were of a curious bluish-green, mottled like frogs, and above them on slender stems hung the flowers, clusters of graceful purple bells, whose throats were streaked with silver, and whose pistils, like long tongues, thrust out of the freaked throats in stabs of bright gold.
          Mary knelt down on the fallen branch and gazed at the flowers, while beside her sat the little black cat, waving his black tail, and watching her out of his green, green eyes."

Pineapple Curry | Splatoon Manga

          Happy release day (US) to volume 3 of the Splatoon manga by Sankichi Hinodeya published through Viz Media AND the release (US; Jun. 12 PM, EU; Jun. 13 AM) of the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch!

          The recipe below is inspired by a scene in the first Splatoon manga where the inkling Goggles blasts out of a turf war in order to chow down on some special curry so he can charge up for a powerful attack and win the game (we also learn in this volume that he loves pickled plums and prefers his ice cream in a cone). ;)

Onion Focaccia w/ Steak & Raspberry Sauce | Delicious in Dungeon

          Delicious in Dungeon by Ryoko Kui is such a fun manga full of dungeon crawling, monsters, and food! In a nutshell, the premise is a group of adventurers working their way down the levels of a massive dungeon (it's like its own world, it's own ecosystem) and making delicious meals of the various creatures they come across so they won't have to keep leaving the dungeon to resupply! The meals are also made with the nutrients and energy they need for adventuring in mind. :)
          There are other aspects of the story like saving a party member from being digested in the belly of a huge dragon, discovering the mystery of the dungeon-world like who created it, how is it sustaining, and what is at its heart (was it a wizard-king and is there a great treasure??), and learning about the various races that make up the dungeon, including the adventurers from the world above.

Natsume's (Edible) Book of Friends

          If the Book of Friends was really made of food, Nyanko-Sensei would have gobbled it up a long time ago (and maybe Natsume with it)! ;)

          Natsume's Book of Friends, or Natsume Yuujinchou in Japan, is a beautiful, long-running manga series by Yuki Midorikawa that has also been adapted into several seasons of anime. I think of it as having a "slice-of-life" genre feel combined with the fantasy of youkai, or Japanese spirits and demons. The story follows a teenager named Natsume and how he balances and navigates his interactions with youkai, who he has the special sight to see, and his regular life with adopted family and school friends.

(#FoodinComics! Originally posted Jan. 2018 on Instagram @fictionfood.)

“...I found some things for us to eat.”
“What kind is that one?”
“Ah, that’s a tritae. It tastes sort of like a praying mantis.”
