Just over a month ago, I met Anna Vu at the MCA Zine Fair and fell in love with her zine '20 Meals in NY' - consisting of 20 illustrations of meals she'd had on a recent trip to the city. And so, Anna has very kindly fed (ahem, pun y'all) my obsession with her artworks, and very kindly drawn some meals she recently had, cooked from the MoVida Rustica cookbook by Frank Camorra and Richard Cornish.

1: Tortillitas de camarones - Fritters of baby prawns
2: Menestra de verduras -Seasonal vegetables with garlic, tomato and Jamón
3: Idikiren masailak pxrexkin - Beef cheeks with Pedro Ximénez
4: Pan con chocolate - Chocolate with sweet olive oil

they all suggest combinations of food that I would never have considered - fritters with prawns - chocolate with olive oil!?
