Make Dinner on the Nostromo with “Alien: The Official Cookbook”

In space, no one can hear you cook. Well, that isn’t FULLY true, as there is an official “Alien” cookbook based on the seminal science fiction classic Ridley Scott film available! With recipes ranging from stuffed tea eggs and bok choy facehuggers, this is certainly a tome for the Colonial Marines or a Company dinner.

The listing for the cookbook reads:

Thrill your friends and frighten your family with 50 delectable recipes inspired by the cult sci-fi Alien series!

Delight your friends with a journey through the Xenomorph’s terrifying life cycle. Alien: The Official Cookbook collects together 50 recipes inspired by the cult Alien franchise; featuring recipes such as avocado Xenomorph eggs and chicken facehugger cordon bleu, there’s something to whet every appetite, no matter how monstrous. 

Whether you’re a fan of the Alien franchise, or you’re just looking for the perfect quirky appetizers, this cookbook will thrill the eyes and the tastebuds. At last, it is your turn to be space’s greatest apex predator.

We do take issue with calling the film “cult sci-fi,” as that term usually denotes something not popular with the general zeitgeist, which we know isn’t the case with the franchise.
