Feasting on Alien Invaders

Miss Emmylou Cakehead (previously at Neatorama) snagged another opportunity to make gruesome but delicious dishes around a theme: an alien invasion! To promote the new season of the TV series Falling Skies, Miss Cakehead teamed up with culinary renegade Jim Thomlinson of London Mess to create a feast of seafood fashioned in the likeness of the the aliens from the show.

The event was Tuesday in London, and featured not only dishes such as “Espheni limbs” and “mucus eyeballs of Skitters,” but the actual aliens from the show were flown in, including the three-meter tall Scorch, a Skitter, and a Harness, plus the alien ally Cochise. The event was held at the Old Street Roundabout, which had been decorated in a post-apocalyptic manner.

The Menu was as follows:

Volm Venom (black champagne)
Mixed Alien Brains (traditional cockles and whelks)
Charred Skitter (BBQ soy and garlic marinated whole squid)
MucusSkitter Eyeballs (Irish rock oysters, hot green chili sauce and black olive paste)
Grilled Harnesses (extra large black tiger prawns with Szechuan pepper butter)
Scorch Fingers (razor clams with a cucumber and wasabi relish)
Mixed Alien Organs (whole crabs, cuttlefish, and octopus cooked in front of guest on ‘egg’ barbecues)  
Espheni Limbs (crab legs)
Dried Skitter Skeleton (squid floss)

And for dessert, the Scavenged Dessert Table, featuring a variety of fruits and cakes, plus edible bullets, edible glass, and Black Hornet Brains (lychees).
