Cookery with a bite

A Twilight salad, a Van Helsing soup, a Buffy purée or eggs à la Vlad...
Whether you are a Bram Stoker fan or more of the Anne Rice type, you will surely find a recipe for you in this cookery book with an extra bite.
From bloody starters to hematic desserts, the tasty vampire cuisine recipes in this book come from the mountains of Romania to the slums of New Orleans. They are all fully illustrated and are accompanied with trivia about legends of the supernatural from all sorts of countries, and references to vampires in popular culture, from classic Bram Stoker to modern Stephenie Meyer, through Richard Matheson, Francis Ford Coppola and Joss Whedon.
And since wine is off the menu (n'est-ce pas, Mr Lugosi) whet your appetite (along with your wooden stake) with a Dracula Cocktail:
- In a shaker mix 1/3 tomato juice with 2/3 Vodka (or, for purists and if you can find some, Stuica, a very strong Romanian plum alcohol);
- Add cloves, one clove of garlic and a pinch of Cayenne pepper (or a few drops of Tabasco);
- Shake well and serve ice cold.
Enjoy with moderation and, above all, with precaution...
