FatBoy Zine issue 4 "Everywhere at Once"

Issue 4 focuses on the chefs and creatives who have left Asia, but have decided to recreate it in their own way in Europe and the US.

Our issue includes three interviews from established chefs, Lucas Sin (Shy Boyz Club & Junzi Kitchen), Erchen Chang and Shing Tat Chung (BAO) and Rahel Stephanie (Eat With Spoons / Linda From Accounting). Each interviewee gives their opinion on process, representation and what drives their food and conversation outside of the kitchen. We also have beautiful photography from previous collaborator Ken Lam and food photography from Emily Leonard.

The issue of course has the staple 5 recipes, from Chilli Oil to a Burnt Coconut Basque Cheesecake.


FatBoy Zine issue 3 "Palette & Politics"

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.

This issue is our biggest and most involved yet, nearly double the size of previous issues. The recipes in this issue center around communal dining and sharing.


FatBoy Zine Issue 2 "At Home in the Philippines"

Our second issue focuses 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 1

Issue one 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.

Originally created in 2018, this is the issue that started our whole project.
