Exploring recipes and gay life in “What Did You Eat Yesterday”

People are defined by their guilty pleasures. A backyard cigarette squeezed by a suburbia housewife. The boss ducking into the bathroom before a pungent, green scent settles over the office. Mine isn’t nearly as toxic.


"What Did You Eat Yesterday?" was my first manga purchase in years. When I was a kid, I used to spend entire Saturdays in my local Barnes and Nobles reading and re-reading "Nana" or "One Piece." But "What Did You Eat Yesterday?" compelled me to break my long fast for one reason - recipes.


I adore recipes and, more importantly, cookbooks. Probably more than the cooking. My brother says I like the idea of cooking, and I begrudgingly agree. See, food is amazing as a cultural centerpiece and just as a delicious marker throughout the day. But combine food and stories and you’ve got me hooked. I’ve followed journalists through their hectic struggle of cooking a traditional Parisian dinner, men who just can’t get enough steak, and my favorite book in recent months is Food, an anthology of travel essays with a focus on food. Travel + Food + Literature = Christina Kryptonite.


And the best part of this niche genre are the recipes snuggled between each farfetched anecdote. In “What Did You Eat Yesterday?,” gay lawyer Takei meticulously scopes supermarket bargain bins looking for the ingredients to a perfectly balanced and cheap meal. The daily dramas of this gay slice-of-life story all ultimately culminate in a recipe that Takei mutters underneath his breathe (and which is also conveniently laid out in the back of each chapter). The traditional internet food porn of glistening morsels on bone-white plates goes through the manga treatment with beautiful drawings of traditional japanese meals at the end of each chapter.


But the power in the subdued plots of “What Did You Eat Yesterday?” is the depiction of food’s central role in daily life. While we all love the typical manga plot lines of fantastical beasts and magical girls, the escapism and artistry ends on the last page. “What Did You Eat Yesterday?” mirrors the pleasures in the reader’s life and by interpreting it in manga form invites us to enjoy a simple meal with Takei and his partner. And the immersion continues after the last page, because the meal shared with the characters can be brought back into your world with a simple recipe at the end of the chapter.


"What Did You Eat Yesterday?" is being published in the US by Vertical. Vol. 1 is out and Vol. 2 is out May 20, 2014. http://www.vertical-inc.com/books/whatdidyoueatyesterday.html

Noted astrophysicist, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, and host of Cosmos Neil deGrasse Tyson will be speaking during the Omaha Pastafarian conference “Apostacon” this September. Allow us to explain what that is and why we’ve photoshopped a colander on Tyson’s head.

Isn&#8217;t it beautiful? apparently there&#8217;ll be a new poster before each new episode of Agents of Shield. Yay art!

This is from EW, and apparently every Thursday before each new episode there will be some art released; some kind of sneak peek to give you a hint for the upcoming episode. This particular one is for ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’.

one thing I find hilarious is when Shakespeare quotes are used out of context

like, people are always saying “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” as if it’s all deep and meaningful when…
