You don’t have to be a cannibal to want this ‘Hannibal’ cookbook
Your dinner parties will never be the same.
Have you ever found yourself watching the TV show Hannibal, and getting kind of… hungry?
That’s a serious question. Because while cannibalism tends to be frowned upon in polite society, the food in Hannibal is designed to look as a delicious as possible. The show’s “food stylist” even has a blog where she explains how she created every one of Hannibal’s meals, including research on what meats can be used to represent different parts of the human body.
Fans of that food blog will be excited to hear that there’s going to be an official Hannibal cookbook as well. In an interview with Crave Online, showrunner Bryan Fuller said the Hannibal recipe book is “in development.”
“Yeah, there’s a cookbook in development,” he said, “and there’s also a fantastic ‘Art of Making of Hannibal.’ I saw some pages from it. It’s a gorgeous book.”
Each season of the show focuses on a different food theme, with season 1 being French cuisine, season 2 being Japanese, and the upcoming third season introducing some Italian recipes. As a result, the Hannibal cookbook will probably have variety, although we assume everything will involve a lot of red meat. Last time Hannibal cooked for a vegetarian on the show, he gave her a leafy salad served alongside a bird skull.
Most of Hannibal’s meals involve unappetizing ingredients like liver and heart, but they’re always so beautifully displayed that they have inspired fans to hold fannibal dinner parties and even create miniature sculptures of his recipes. That cookbook, whenever it comes out, will probably sell like the proverbial hotcakes.
