The FAQ

.

Who runs this shit-show?

.

Why did this option leave?

That would be me. I’m Tyler, the owner/operator/author of this odd little corner of the internet called Cooking Comically. I come up with the recipes, cook them, photograph them, draw on them, eat them and share them. Not necessarily in that order.  I have never nor will ever claim to be a chef. I have no formal training in the culinary arts.  I’m just a guy who likes to cook and eat and also just happens to draw comics, take pictures.  I also like to think that recipes should be more representative of how fun cooking can actually be instead of just a block of text.

Where did this idea come from?

.

This all started with my chili, so you should probably blame my brother Nate. He got me started cooking it and I nailed down my own recipe in the winter of 2011. After a little foray into food photography for a class, I made a really silly comic out of the recipe on a whim. I called it 2AM Chili and put it on Reddit. Before long it was at the #1 spot on the site and was being cross-posted on various blogs and social media sites all over the internet. A lot of people liked it. A lot of people hated it. But, one thing was certain: It got a huge response. I received enough messages and comments asking for more that I started to think about continuing it. I decided to follow it up with The Bananarama. Again, a sizable response followed, but this time it was almost entirely positive with even more requests for me to continue. I threw the website together and started pulling out more recipes to make. That was that.
