Starting today and all April long, I’ll be hosting #MagicalRealFood, a link up through Fandom Foodies dedicated to food found in and inspired by magical realism. According to Wikipedia, magical realism is “what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe.”
When magical realism is done well, it’s absolutely one of my favorite types of fiction. But magical realism can also be found in other types of art outside of literature - movies, television shows and video games can all have elements of magical realism as well. It’s more common than you may think!
If you’d like to participate, here’s how:
#MagicalRealFood is open to everyone, seasoned fandom foodies and novices alike!
Create a recipe post (this can be on a blog, Tumblr, Instagram – anywhere you can type up a recipe with a photo) and share your link on the official linkup page (below). When sharing your creation on social media make sure to use the custom hashtag! I’ll be checking all month and sharing some of my favorites, so be sure to remember to include #MagicalRealFood when posting.
Note: The recipe post must be of your own creation (meaning don’t link-up to someone else’s recipe/post). If the food you made was adapted from another source or a variation on an existing recipe, make sure you give proper credit!
Alright, let’s dive into some #MagicalRealFood!
