AMC Is Launching An Official WALKING DEAD Cookbook And Survival Guide

Love or hate the past few seasons of The Walking Dead, you have to appreciate the world they built over their seven-year run. While fans eagerly await for the premiere of the eithth season, AMC is giving them a little something to chew on to tide over their walker-loving appetites.

AMC has partnered up with Insight Editions to launch The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide.

Inside the cookbook are more than 60 recipes covering breakfast, dinner, drinks, and desserts. Some of the entries are taken straight from the television series such as Carol’s Peletier’s Cookies and Daryl’s Deer Stew.

Yum.

Because a cookbook is useless if you don’t know how to survive in this new world, the book also features tips on hunting and foraging in the event we ever witness a zombie apocalypse.

The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide is scheduled to arrive at bookstores in October. The publisher stresses that no humans were harmed in the marking of this culinary resource.

Zombie Food Truck Brings New Meaning to ‘Brain Food’

If London ever hosts the Olympics again, it can perform a tribute to Gory Gourmet’s unusual zombie-like menu during its unnecessary four-hour-long opening ceremony.

Mark Jankel, owner of the London-based Street Kitchen food truck, created this special zombie-themed food truck and hit the streets last week in honor of “The Walking Dead Season 2” release on DVD and Blu-Ray August 27.

This obviously isn’t what your elementary school teacher meant when they taught you about “brain food,” but it was probably the first thing that came to mind the first time you heard the term used.

The truck features the “Big Brain Burger,” “Crispy Brain Dippers,” a “Brain Salad Wrap,” and side orders consisting of “Feet and Thyroid Nuggets” and “Skewered Hearts.

For those wondering what the brains in these dishes are made up of, they are actual cow brains. That is the shock value that Jankel was looking to provide and it seemed to have worked as people flocked to the truck like zombies.

Cow brains as food might sound a little taboo to those who grew up watching shows like Fear Factor, but if you ever see“Sesos” offered at a Mexican taco truck, you’ve just found yourself a place to have a zombie-like dinner.

The Menu:

  • Big Brain Burger-

Cow brain with smoked mustard mayo, lettuce and cheese in a sesame seed bun.

  • Crispy Brain Dippers-

Crispy chunks of brain with barbecue sauce.

  • Brain Salad Wrap-

Crispy chunks of brain with wild rocket and tarragon mayo.

  • Feet and Thyroid Nuggets-

Nuggets of pig’s feet and cow thyroid with herb mayo.

  • Skewered Hearts-

Grilled beef heart skewers with horseradish mayo.
