Recently, io9 has shared recipes from Simpsons and Hocus Pocus-themed cookbooks. But today we’ve got a standout, both in terms of source material (Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, always a fun inspiration in the kitchen) and for the way author Chris-Rachael Oseland has managed to transform something that’s absolutely terrifying and more than a little repulsive in that source material into delicious-looking dishes. Open up the airlock, grab your lucky ginger cat, and hold onto your chest—because today, we’ve got a peek at the brand-new release, Alien: The Official Cookbook.
Here’s the official description, which gives you a bit more information: “Delight your friends with a journey through the Xenomorph’s terrifying life cycle.
