Marvel Studios: Black Panther ‘Taste of Wakanda’

IHEARTCOMIX joined forces with Marvel Studios to create the Taste of Wakanda, a culinary experience celebrating the release of Black Panther. 

To execute The Taste of Wakanda, we partnered with the Bronx-based chef collective, Ghetto Gastro, to imagine what the cuisine of the fictional nation of Wakanda might be. From the server attire, to “vibranium” glowing trays to a custom built Taste of Wakanda bar, no detail was overlooked as we created an immersive experience that matched the dynamic visuals of the film. The Taste of Wakanda served as a centerpiece to a New York Fashion Week event that showcased designs inspired by Black Panther. The cast, including Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan stopped by the event to enjoy the food, as well as director, Ryan Coogler.

We documented Ghetto Gastro’s process from their attendance at the premiere in LA to the search for the perfect recipes. The content was collected into a series of social media videos released through Marvel Studios, Marvel Entertainment, and Black Panther social media accounts. The culmination was turned into a short form documentary.
