chefs for humanity

Fact: Pansexuals are amazing cooks, and when they don’t cook for extended periods of time their cooking skills build up. Some of the most skilled chefs in the Pansexual Pantheon are known to wait for months at a time to fulfill an order for clients. The best chefs, who wait an entire human life time to make food, are legends among the Pantheon.

“When a world class chef cooks for the underprivileged.

Massimo Bottura is the owner of the renowned Osteria Francescana restaurant in Modena, Italy; which was recently ranked top spot by the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.

While a man like him could’ve comfortably enjoyed the luxuries of life, he saw a problem with the Olympics in Rio: food wastage.

A HUGE amount of food is prepared daily for the Olympians, and much of it goes to waste. So Massimo assembled a team of 50 volunteer chefs, took the leftovers and setup shop down the road from the stadium.

They put up a makeshift "restaurant” and overnight, they served world class dinner to 70 homeless individuals. A complete dinner, made with ingredients for our best sportsmen, cooked to perfection by the best chefs in the world.

As the Olympics go on, the restaurant will continue to operate autonomously, eventually even outliving the Games’ presence in the city. It is set to be a permanent installation with a name fit for a top-end eatery—Refettorio Gastromotiva (Gastromotiva Eating Hall).

While Olympians incite unity through sportsmanship and superhuman feats within the confines of the stadium, men like Bottura inspire humanity through action outside.“

I’m not serving a menu, I’m serving a story, I’m serving my soul. I’m serving a conversation and I want you to talk back to me, I want you to dialogue with me. I’m triggering something inside of you, the memories of inside of you. And if I do this I know that I’m doing the right thing.

Humans are Weird - Food

Imagine if a human chef on a ship didn’t know the other species’ well and had to always have everyone come in and tell them if they were going to cook something that could be potentially dangerous. I can’t think of a story to write for this but here’s my little bit of humans are weird! Someone should write a story on this tbh

Omgcp vampire au where bitty is a human chef who specializes in vampire food and jack is a human whos terrified of blood and really wants to flirt with the cute man but that cute man has an entire fridge full of blood.

Btw nursey is also hemophobic but hes also an actual vampire and not the vegetarian fruitbat kind. He eats blood sausages and relies heavily on bitty’s skills to disguise blood.

Holster has to remember that hes a vampire and wolfing down ten french silk cakes and sandwiches is just going to make him throw up a few hours later and hes not going to get any nutrition from it.

Ransom is a fruitbat vampire and lives on fruit. The actual flesh of the fruit has no nutritional value but does make him shit and is good for his intestines.

I would love to see some IDW Soundwave/human SO imagines. Just, things he does to show affection and care. He's not exactly good with words. Also, how would he get them to laugh?

—Soundwave almost always knows what his SO needs or desires; he pays attention to the little things that they say, and to the bigger things that they don’t.  Intervention before matters have even been voiced, or when his SO is feeling particularly stressed, is a way that he shows his love.  This can take many forms, including spontaneous trips, or suddenly scooping them up to cuddle, wordless and understanding.  

—Knowing that human dietary requirements, and consequently palates, are far more complex than that of a Cybertronian, or even that of many other organic races, Soundwave spends some of his free time finding new recipes to prepare for his SO.  He pays special attention to the nuances of cooking described by human chefs, although he himself does not understand them, and also to the visual presentation, to ensure that each meal is as near to perfect as he can make it.

—Soundwave is aware that pleasant physical sensations and the ingestion of a wide variety of chemical compounds are important to the positive mental health of most organics, and humans seem to be quite reliant on them; he likes to ready their home for his SO to return to, sometimes with a hot bath and a relaxing drink, perhaps followed by a vid and a comfortable place to sit, waiting for them before they even arrive at the door.  

—Soundwave is generally quite silent, but his insights, when he offers them, are both wise and knowledgeable.  He listens intently to his SO as they speak of their concerns or their passions, and always picks up on the important details, filing them away for later reference in his daily efforts to lighten the heart of his beloved.

—His SO is certainly a being who would benefit from humor far more than he, but this does not mean that Soundwave does not have a sense of humor himself.  He knows his SO’s favored style of humor, and keeps track of their tastes as they expand or shift focus, and he makes use of this information with pranks or creative gifts left lying about when and where his SO would find them at their most useful, or at their most humorous.  He finds small joys in watching the mood of his SO improve, and in hearing their laughter as they delight in something comical.
