Food is easily one of the most enjoyable entryways into experiencing any culture. But when food is mixed with a comic book, history lesson, vibrant culinary world tour, and the imaginations of Adrienne Lo and Abe Conlon—chefs and co-owners of award-winning Chicago restaurant Fat Rice—then you get a chance to satisfy not only your stomach but also your mind. Lo and Conlon released The Adventures of Fat Rice: Recipes from the Chicago Restaurant Inspired by Macau in late October and have two upcoming Seattle events related to their wacky illustrated cookbook.
