Recipes for Monsters – review and competition

I’ve just been sent a fabulous cook book to review and the opportunity to give away three copies.
It’s not just for Halloween but I though it would be fun to get this competition up and running in time for monsters of all kinds.

The Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Cookbook is full of everyday recipes for the Living , Dead and Undead. I love it! I’m going to be cooking recipes from the book over the next three weeks while promoting this give away.

The book is highly amusing as it is written as if for monsters, but the recipes are completely safe and sound amazingly delicious despite their creepy names. This would make a perfect gift for all monster, horror and fantasy lovers, Harry Potter Addicts, The Walking Dead Fans, Horror Movie Buffs or Terry Pratchett Enthusiast (like myself)

There are recipes for Zombies, Wearwolves, Vampires, Mummies and Witches. A few of the recipes are translated into monster languages to make it easier for the monsters. The website also has the facility for translation which is fabulous for the monsters looking to purchase this book.

The recipes fall into the categories;

  • Sweets and Pastilles
  • Biscuits and Cookies
  • Cakes and Bakes
  • Jams and Preserves
  • Savoury Snacks for Entertaining Monsters
  • Potions and Poisons

Despite gruesome names like Warm Kidney Cupcakes, they are completely safe and doable recipes for anyone, even if you are not a monster.

Take a look at this video for Maggot Brownies.

The humour throughout the book will appeal to all humans and there are sections devoted to those special little additions like labels for gifts and buffets, cave games, rules for entertaining and how to carve a human (very similar to those guides of the best cuts of a cow!) 
The book retails at £13.00 and is written by Mitchell Beazley.
The Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Cookbook comes from the Hoxten Street Shop found in East London (unsurprisingly on Hoxton Street) and is the purveyor off all kinds of everyday items for the living, dead and undead. Due to a curse all profits got to The Ministry of  Stories, a creative writing and mentoring charity for young humans. At the shop you will such goodies as Earwax Cubes, Salt Made From Tears of Anger or Banshee Balls as well as the fabulous cookbook.
So if you are looking to treat that monster in your life, you now know where to go.
