Hellbent For Cooking
The Heavy Metal Cookbook which contains 101 recipes by metal bands from 32 countries.
[Paperback] by Annick “Morbid Chef” Giroux
With this delicious collection of favorite basic recipes by heavy metal bands from around the globe, Annick “The Morbid Chef” Giroux declares war on junk food, and fires up the flame for a special heavy metal feast.
Hellbent for Cooking feeds voracious appetites with a varied menu of over a hundred recipes from thirty countries, including Yorkshire Pudding from England, Beer Pizza Crust from Germany, Spaghetti Barracuda from Italy, Fårikål from Norway, Country Lamb Exohiko from Greece, Churrasco from Brazil, and Mushroom Steak à la Jack Daniel’s from the United States.
The dishes are legendary, and so are the bands. Feel the heat of thrash metal pioneers Sepultura, Kreator, Anthrax, and Nuclear Assault; the proto-metal heavy rock of Thin Lizzy, early Judas Priest, and Uriah Heep; the slow-cooked doom of Pentagram and Saint Vitus; and the extreme cuisine of underground pioneers Autopsy, Death, Repulsion; and Norway’s infamous black metal chefs Mayhem and Gorgoroth.
Raise your infernal fork for madman Chris Reifert’s Mummified Jalapeño Bacon Bombs, then sample Roast Beef with Green Beans prepared under the watchful eye of Udo Dirkschneider of Accept. Try After the Bombs’ Speed Metal Vegan Tofu, or Eyehategod’s favorite New Orleans Blood Red Beans and Rice.
Afterwards, Doro Pesch of Warlock serves her Black Forest Cake, and Richard Christy from Death pours his trademark cocktail, the mighty Viking Testicle. Now for anyone with a taste for metal: The kitchen gates are open—grab your weapons of mass nutrition and let the feasts begin!

What The Press Say
“There are a few guys who have rightly earned themselves the title of ‘culinary bad boy’ in the past few years…Anthony Bourdain…Marco Pierre White…David Chang… But these guys are nothing compared to the heavy metal home cooks who contributed the recipes for Annick Giroux’s new cookbook Hellbent For Cooking.”—Serious Eats.com
“Part global cookbook, part underground metal compendium”—New York Post
“What these bands have in common is metal—an art form, an attitude, a lifestyle. It’s not just a gimmick in the cookbook context; it comes screaming through the recipes.”—LA Weekly
