The Vampire Zombie Werewolf Cookoff Cookbook by J.O. Osbourne

Vampire
The recipes gathered here showcase the gorier side of cooking; making them perfect for vampire-themed parties, Halloween gatherings or any time you just need to add a little edible blood to the mix. Naturally red ingredients like tomatoes, beets, cabbage and cherries are transformed into bloody delights that come together to make satisfying dishes. The key to most of these dishes lies in presentation and all have received the vampire stamp of approval.

Zombie
Whether you’re looking to impress your dinner guests during Halloween or just have an urge to eat eyeballs, brains and severed fingers, a few simple techniques and recipes can easily fill up your plate with fright. Common ingredients, like olives, ketchup and marshmallows can be transformed into eyeballs, blood and sticky brain matter. While some of the following recipes do require some culinary know-how, most are simple to assemble and can be made in less than an hour. That’s good news for those looking to get freaked-out fast.

Werewolf
This collection of recipes focuses on the hairier side of the culinary world and explores eats that send a chill up your spine. Inspired by the eating habits of werewolves, you will find a variety of chewy meats and fun-to-decorate treats, along with worms, bones and furry fingers. Most of these recipes have simple ingredients and follow common cooking procedures but with a few creative tweaks in the spooky direction, are transformed into a frightful collection of dishes sure to unleash the beast in you.
