Publishers Weekly recently posted an article, "Comics Publishers Enter the Kitchen." Not surprisingly, food is entering the world of manga. In particular, I loved the bit about Yakitate!! Japan, which features a 16-year-old boy that has "other-worldly baking powers." Thank god someone was blessed with them because we all know I have no such powers. Here is a great quote from the PW article:
Says one character when a classmate offers to teach him how to make croissants for a competition, “Just learning how to make it won’t do jack for us… what we need to make is… the ultimate croissant that can defeat even Suwabara!!”
Eat, drink, and fight the forces of evil with pain chocolat!
