Apocalypse Chow is a parody retelling of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, served with generous portions of Francis Ford Coppola's film, Apocalypse Now. Chef Walter E Kurtz, Canada's Greatest Chef, i... s at the helm of Chow, an extreme destination dining restaurant in the wilds of northern Ontario. Kurtz is brilliant and talented in every way... but he's gone rogue, and possibly insane. Veteran restaurant manager and hired gun, Charlie Marlow, is deployed by the Brothers, the illustrious owners of Chow, to venture into the hinterlands and confront their erstwhile genius. Marlow is instructed to fire Chef Kurtz with extreme prejudice. But can he follow through with his mission, or will the hunger consume them both? In the ultimate showdown of authority versus anarchy, who will triumph? Apocalypse Chow is a novella exploring the restaurant world from the inside out. Issues of food security, consumption, and greed are explored along with the prodigious and largely under-appreciated bounty of ingredients found naturally in northern Ontario. Apocalypse Chow is a parody of our modern food and consumer culture, neatly packaged into a highly consumable literary product. Whether or not the reader is wholly familiar with the source material, Apocalypse Chow is a satisfying adventure into the heart of an impenetrable restaurant.
