Kitchen Overlord

Xenomorph EggsBy day, Chris-Rachael Oseland writes for the Austin post. By night, she “descends into her lair at the base of an extinct volcano, dons her apron and monocle, and subjects her minions to countless culinary experiments.”

The results of her postmeridian perambulations are showcased at Kitchen Overlord, where she’ll show you how to make anatomically-accurate heart pull-apart bread, facehugger eggs, and Charles Dickens’ favorite Christmas punch.

The site’s emphasis leans slightly more toward “geek” than “goth,” but there’s plenty of overlap. Indiana Jones-inspired monkey brains would certainly be right at home on a Halloween table, and roasted tribbles could easily be passed off as roasted tarantulas.

She’s also written several books on geeky food and drink, including a True Blood drinking guide, a a Doctor Who-inspired cookbook, and a book of steampunk cocktails.

    I’m in love with the presentation of the tea eggs: “Now gently slide your egg into the cucumber mount.” Also the idea in the comments about solid (rather than halved) deviled eggs with “dark, bloody filling erupting from a little plume” make me want to get my cook on.

    Oh man I have a nurse friend who will go apeshit over that heart bread. And thankfully it’s heading into winter here and my friends are absolutely the type who will appreciate Charles Dickens’ mulled brandy.
