If you're looking for one of the most disgusting ways to celebrate the return of AMC's zombie drama "The Walking Dead," book a ticket to London next week.
At a yet-to-be-revealed secret location in East London on Sept. 30, British chefs Miss Cakehead and James Tomlinson will host a pop-up kitchen (appropriately called Terminus Tavern) and serve "cannibal burgers." The interesting culinary creation, produced in partnership with Fox (which will air "The Walking Dead" in the U.K.), is made using testimonials from famous cannibals on the taste of human flesh.
"With fans up and down the country hungry for Season 5 of 'The Walking Dead,' this is certainly a unique tribute to the series," Tomlinson told HorrorTalk. "My food is inspired by flavor combinations and fresh produce, so it was a little odd to be inspired by the words of cannibals instead."
Using the testimonials as a guide — "It melted in my mouth like raw tuna at a sushi restaurant," says Issei Sagawa; "It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef. It was very definitely like that, and it was not like any other meat I had ever tasted," says William Seabrook — Tomlinson and Cakehead created a recipe that's composed of pork, veal and a bit of minced bone marrow.
"Salt and pepper to taste, the less seasoning you use the more it tastes like human flesh!!!," Tomlinson enthusiastically states in his recipe.
If you're game to give this macabre culinary dish a try, follow Tomlinson's Twitter feed to learn of the secret Terminus Tavern location. "The Walking Dead" officially returns to television on Oct. 12.
