Nothing says Halloween like gore. And how does gore translate into recipes? As brains, of course.

If you’re hoping to get festive in the kitchen this year ― and we don’t mean cutesie little spider cookies and pumpkin truffles ― you might want to consider cooking up this organ, in one form or another. It’s the only way to capture the true spirit of this holiday.

Surprisingly, brain recipes come in many forms: cocktails, cakes, cupcakes and even shrimp, too. So this 31st of October, channel your inner zombie (finally, all those hours spent watching “Walking Dead” will come to good use) and start making some brains to feed to your family and friends.
