The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

Last week I broke my zombie book rule–READ ONLY WHILE IT’S DAYLIGHT. Not surprisingly, the zombies made their way into my dreams so I’ve been sleeping with the light on. Which means I havn’t been sleeping properly and I’m not looking so great at the moment. It didn’t help that I found World War Z a very s-l-o-w read!
I had difficulty connecting with the style. Written as an interview, I kept waiting and hoping for something exciting to happen. Rather like digging through a box of Cheerios for the promised prize, only to never find one.
So try that for a combo–a book that bores me, and one that can only be read during the day because it terrifies me. Although it is a bestseller, it just isn’t my cup of tea.
And since it’s a zombie book, there’s very little reference to food. A mention of a Starbucks and Falasha restaurant, a shot of ‘kill devil’ rum, dehydrated food, Mooseburgers and wild berry desserts pretty much covers it.
While I’m usually pretty focused on replicating the food from books, this time I wanted to make something that said ‘ZOMBIE’. As cool as it sounds, Mooseburger wasn’t going to cut it.
What I actually wanted was to make these with green ketchup, but I’m apparently seven years too late to buy it off the shelf. And no green tomatoes could be found to make it from scratch. But could you imagine it with a big zombie virus label for a zombie party? That would be cool.
