Food with deceptive names

I have absolutely no experience with zines from before, so it was very interesting to learn more about them and give making one a shot! I've been fascinated for some time with the concept of things with confusing names; I have made a couple of informational posters before about animals that are called the same thing despite being totally different species, and I had been thinking about making one about food that has some geographical reference in their title but really has no or very little connection to that place. When thinking about ideas for my zine, I figured this might be the perfect medium for that.

I just googled some possible candidates and got straight to work, no sketching. Well, no sketching, aside from the general outline of the earth on the back, and I still managed to lose the UK there in the Atlantic, so... Oops. Anyway. If I were to go back and redo this, I would definitely improve the front page, but generally I kind of like the haphazard look. I would also use better paper, because the ink just shines right through this cheap-o printing paper, so I could not even scan it.

Edited to add: Sorry about the sideways pictures, I have no idea why they appear like that, they show up okay on my computer.
