Pick a science-fiction character. Doesn’t matter where they’re from. Now, tell me what their favorite food is.

You can’t think of anything, can you?

In most fiction, the characters eat. You might know instantly that Homer Simpson loves donuts, that Winnie the Pooh yearns for honey, that Bugs Bunny eats carrots with abandon, or that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are all about pizza. Your friend with an MFA might wax poetic about Proust and his famous madeleines, and any Harry Potter fan can tell you all about treacle tarts and chocolate frogs and butterbeer. There’s even a Game of Thrones cookbook.

But in modern sci-fi, no one ever seems to have a good meal.

I write about the past, present, and future of food and the human condition. Also sometimes snacks.
