ABOUT

+
Inspired by the everlasting bonds deepened through the sharing of teatime and meals at the Garreg Mach Monastery, Fódlan Cuizine is an upcoming SFW fanzine and cookbook, celebrating the food, friendships, and families of Fódlan.

Our theme is warmth and community. The zine will strive to highlight the various relationships in Fire Emblem: Three Houses through heartfelt stories and art, while featuring recipes of food from the game as well as original dishes and drinks inspired by it.

Fódlan Cuizine is a fan made, non-profit project. All proceeds from the sale of the zine will be donated to the organization Action Against Hunger.

F.A.Q.

+
Is the zine for profit or non-profit?

The zine is non-profit! All proceeds made after the cost of production and compensating contributors with a copy of the project will be donated to the charity Action Against Hunger.
+

When should I expect to receive my order?

At this time, bundles are estimated to be shipped out in February 2022! Please keep an eye out on our social media for news and production updates.
+

Can I sign up for an email alert when leftover sale starts?

Yes! Please sign up HERE.
+

When will the PDF of zines be sent out?

They will be sent out once half of the physical orders are shipped! We hope that everyone can enjoy the book around the same time.
+

Where will the zines be shipped from?

The zines will be shipped from California, USA!
+

Will any of the physical merch and stretch goal merch be sold individually?

We plan on selling physical merch individually and in bundles in our leftover sale after all preorder packages are sent out. However, please be aware that we are unable to guarantee that all merch items will be in stock in our store!
+

When will you have leftover sales?

We will have leftover sales once all preorder bundles are delivered. Please stay tuned for an email sign up form in the coming months if you want to be notified of our leftover sales!
+

Can I update my mailing address if it changes after I place an order?

Yes! We will be sending out an email to our physical bundle purchasers shortly prior to our shipping period, which will contain instructions on how to update your shipping address.
+

How many pages will the book be? Will it have a spine?

The zine is 140+ pages long! It is paperback and perfect bound.
+

Will contributors retain rights to their work?

Yes, absolutely. Contributors will be able to publish their own completed pieces and print them for distribution and sale following 3-6 months after the conclusion of the project, which includes pre-orders and leftover sales.
+

Why is “cuisine” spelt like that?

"Cuizine" is intentionally spelt with a 'z' because it's a play on words! It's a zine about the cuisine in Fódlan, therefore "Fódlan Cui-Zine."
