Ryan Dunlavey teams with chef Amanda Cohen on comic cookbook
If the promise of Anthony Bourdain’s Get Jiro! isn’t enough to whet the appetites of foodies and comics fans alike, now Amanda Cohen, chef-owner of Dirt Candy in New York City, has announced she’s collaborating with artist Ryan Dunlavey (Action Philosophers) on a graphic novel cookbook. Dirt Candy is an acclaimed vegetarian, or perhaps simply vegetable, restaurant that opened two years ago.
“I’m not sure if ‘graphic novel’ is the best term here since it’s a cookbook and not a novel,” Cohen writes on her restaurant’s website, “but that’s the best description I can come up with.”
The cookbook will be published in summer 2012 by Clarkson Potter, an imprint of The Crown Publishing Group.
