- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (I only made 2 servings so it's bout 29g butter)
- 1/4 cup sugar (4 tablespoons here only if you are making for 2)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (1/4 obviously)
- 4 whole cinnamon sticks (2 sticks)
- 4 small Granny Smith apples, halved lengthwise, seeds and stems left intact (2 apples)
Chew Vol . 1: Taster’s Choice. Deliciously twisted and scrumptiously funny, Chew is crime-fiction like you have never seen or tasted before. I heard lots of good things about this offbeat but best-selling title but never had the urge or loose change to grab a copy at the shop, thank goodness I found the first trade paperback at the library.
Published by Image and written by John Layman with art by Rob Guillory, Chew is about the adventures of US Food and Drug Administration Agent Tony Chu, who also just happens to a Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. Anything he takes a bite out of, from animal to vegetable, he’ll know its life story immediately and that includes human body parts. I’m sure you can see where this is going. This is one detective whose job description includes taking a nibble out of a murder victim to see who’s the killer.
The five chapters here introduce the refreshingly original cast and a world that’s been ravaged by the bird flu. Millions were killed by the avian flu (or not?) and chicken is now the latest black market drug. Character-driven and with lots of action, you are definitely in for a treat with this Eisner Award-winning series.
Still wanna how hot this series is? Well, the production company behind The Walking Dead series is planning to adapt Chew for TV too.
