Looking for menu ideas for Halloween treats at your bakery?

The Horror Movie Night Cookbook: 60 Deliciously Deadly Recipes Inspired by Iconic Slashers, Zombie Films, Psychological Thrillers, Sci- Fi Spooks, and More by Richard S. Sargent is a killer new cookbook offering food and cocktail pairings inspired by the content of chilling classics like Jaws, Psycho, Scream, The Conjuring, The Evil Dead and Halloween!

You’ll find recipes inspired by horror’s most frightening favourites, including:
• Crawling Steak (Poltergeist)
• Campfire Sour (The Blair Witch Project)
• Zombie Baby Kale Salad (Dawn of the Dead) • Bloody Floaties (Jaws)
• Alligator Bites (Crawl)
• The Mama’s Boy Martini (Psycho)

“Inspired by the film itself, the recipes are built around food that is being eaten in the films or iconic lines or characters within,” the author says. “It’s not just a cookbook to pull out in October. ”


The Horror Movie Night Cookbook will be available in hardcover July 18 from Ulysses Press (ISBN: 978-1-64604-491-7) for $26.95 Cdn.
