About the Author

Jarrett Melendez grew up on the mean, deer-infested streets of Bucksport, Maine. A longtime fan of food and cooking, Jarrett has spent a lot of his time in kitchens, oftentimes as a paid professional! Jarrett is a regular contributor to Bon Appetit and Food52, and is the author of The Comic Kitchen, a fully illustrated, comic-style cookbook. When not cooking and writing about food, Jarrett usually writes comic books (like this one, Chef's Kiss!) and has contributed to the Ringo-nominated All We Ever Wanted, Full Bleed, and Murder Hobo: Chaotic Neutral. He is currently writing a graphic memoir for Oni Press.

Jarrett lives in Somerville, MA, with his partner, Stuart, and their collection of Monokuro Boo plush pigs.

Danica Brine is walking sass in a leather jacket, forged in the icy lands of New Brunswick, Canada. From her waking hours to the moment she slumps over asleep at her desk, Danica can be found with a drawing tool in her hands.

She's also contributed artwork to All We Ever Wanted, featured in the New York Times, and The Comic Kitchen. When not working as a comic artist, she illustrates children's books for a Canadian French-language publisher.

Danica lives in Moncton, NB, Canada, with her husband, Nick, and their shiba inu, Taro.

Chef's Kiss explores the messiness of young adulthood in the most delightful, heartening ways, and I want to follow Ben and his friends on a million more culinary adventures, eating up every word. 10/10 recommend.--Robbie Couch, author of The Sky Blues
"Fresh, funny, and romantic. This coming-of-age story about friendship, finding yourself, and following your dreams will melt your heart and teach you how to bake a mean pear tart!"--Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures & Teen Titans: Raven
"Chef's Kiss is part rom-com, part sultry anime, and part instructional cookbook, there may not be another book out right now that ticks so many of my entertainment needs. Ben and Liam taught me what it means to ship."--Sohla El-Waylly
