Issue #1 is a personal documentation of how food, culture and growing up impact on each other. Consisting of 9 recipes from Hong Kong and the Philippines, this first issue of FatBoy Zine looks at the connection between location and culture and how "fusion" food can be a misleading term for some.
The recipes in this issue include the Philippine
staple Adobo, and Chinese fried chicken.
We’re proud to announce the release of FBZ #2. This issue focusses on a specific location; the Philippines. Continuing our documentation of Asian food culture, we look at the rich diversity of Filipino food, highlighting the subtly and chaos through 8 recipes made of opposing flavours (fatty & acidic, sweet & tart). The zine explores how this food culture can be unrepresented, but definitely not undervalued.
Recipes in this issue include the classics Halo-Halo, Lumpia, Leche Flan & Ube Ice Cream.
FatBoy Zine Issue 3 'Palette & Politics' This issue looks at the food and identity of Hong Kong, whose food culture is an amazing story of adoption, adaption and growth. Here we focus on communal dishes set against the backdrop of the current fight for democracy. This is FBZs largest issue, with writing from Cynthia Chou, Illustrations from Jacco Bunt, Film and photography from Kenneth Lam, Photography from Xaviar Manhing and food photography from Emily Leonard.
