Yu-Gi-Oh! Cookbook Zine

A zine featuring recipes from and inspired by Yu-Gi-Oh!

About


The Yu-Gi-Oh! cookbook zine showcases recipes for food from and inspired by Yu-Gi-Oh, ranging from food appearing in the show to the favorite food of characters to Yu-Gi-Oh! themed dishes. The cookbook will also feature original fanart and written content from other contributors.

Teams of artists, writers, and cooks will be assigned a recipe to work with and assemble a four-page layout with a introductory written piece, recipe, picture of the dish, and accompanying artwork.

While primarily centered around Duel Monsters, the cookbook will ideally contain some recipes from other series up to and including SEVENS.

This zine is non-profit; proceeds will be donated to the United Nations World Food Programme, which provides meals to families in need around the world.
