These burgers taste of human flesh

These burgers are not made of human flesh—but they taste like human flesh. That's what chef James Tomlinson and food inventor Miss Cakehead say. They developed the recipe using the description from cannibals like William Seabrook—a journalist who cooked human meat provided by a hospital intern at the Sorbonne.


From the Daily Telegraph:

Thankfully, the pair didn't have to nibble human flesh themselves to create their burger: instead, they read accounts from various cannibals about what human flesh tastes like. Inspiration came from flesh munchers including William Seabrook, an explorer who described human flesh as tasting like "good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef" and the murderer Issei Sagawa, who said it "melted in my mouth like raw tuna in a sushi retsaurant".


They are made of "pork, veal, bone marrow and chicken livers."

The burgers were created to celebrate the new season of Walking Dead.

I would eat them like that. They look juicy! Would you eat them (cooked, I mean)?

As someone who's tasted ethically harvested human flesh, I'll volunteer my tasting services.
