‘Every Man’ illustrations: Food and Diet

‘Every Man’ illustrations

by Chris Sav

My relationship with food is rather special, and one that can only be explained through a list of key events:

– standing with my head in my hands, unsure of what to do as a saucepan of pasta boils over in front of me.
– eating an ASDA Quiche Lorraine every evening for the majority of my first year at university.
– chips after a night out.
– realising the chicken in the curry I made was still a bit pink so finished it off in the microwave.
– mustering up the courage to carve a roast chicken properly.
– imagining the woman with the soft voice from Masterchef narrating as I’m gutting a squid.
– chips after a night out.
– growing my first courgette.
– cooking the courgette.
– making jam.
– Materchef being the highlight of my week.
– writing an essay about jam.
– celeriac chips after a night out.
– obsessively drawing cupcakes.
– The Great British Bake Off being the highlight of my week.
– crystallizing rosemary leaves to adorn a chocolate cake.
– writing essays about cupcakes.
– baking to dispel an existential crisis.
– parsnip crisps after a night out.
