But who is Foxx?
Known among food critics as the Mistress of Tastes (味の娘), Foxx is highly skilled with culinary arts, especially in the field of molecular mixology. She wields the power to manipulate ingredients with an almost terrifying precision. Unfortunately outside of a professional environment she has been known to burn 2-minute noodles – or maybe that’s just an excuse to stop her friends coming around for dinner every night.
When not working in her restaurant, Foxx is busy renovating the run-down mansion which she and Vik bought together. Their intention is to create a restaurant/ theatre – in the mean time they rent out the upper stories to the various members of the Gay Geek crew.
Being highly adapted to city life, Fox has a heavily developed cynicism as a defense mechanism against the frequently hostile environment – though it also serves to assist in the delivery of scathing mockery of the mediocre mainstream chefs that attempt to pass off as experts.
The woman behind Fox is an artist-turned-chef who has recently rediscovered her muse. Check out her blog!
