We Need a Name for the Comic Cookbook show

I know it seems awfully early, seeing as we haven’t even had the opening for Lutefisk Sushi Volume D yet (opening August 6th… potluck this Saturday for participants), but Altered Esthetics is printing their calendar for next year soon, so we need a catchy title for the comic cookbook show we will be putting on there next year. Local Hero Kevin Cannon has generously volunteered to draw something for the calendar. We need something quick, so make some suggestions in the comments and let’s get it figured out. Possibilities so far:

The Comic Cookbook
Just Add Ink
Culinary Comics
The Gourmet Cartoonist
Gastronomical Giggles
Gag Comics: A Cartoon Cookbook

Please only participate in this discussion if you plan to participate in the show. Note that this will not be a regional show, and cartoonists from all over the world are encouraged to participate.

    I like “Just Add Ink.”

    I also like Scott’s idea to include some kind of hotdish reference but I can’t think of anything good.

    Hotdish Nation? (Although that may lead to everyone contributing hotdishes).

    My only issue with “Just Add Ink” is that it makes with think of eating food with ink in it, which seems wrong somehow.

    Yeah, I think “JUST ADD INK” is best. i was going to try and think of some kind of ink related pun but was beat to it.

    “Just Add Ink” gets my vote.

    “Just Add Ink” works for me.

    Looks like we’re not the only ones to have this idea: http://www.theydrawandcook.com/

    Some amazing stuff right there.
