Baked Potato Stock
  1. 8 Yukon gold potatoes
  2. ½ cup of olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  4. 1 liter of hot water (95 C, not boiling)
Baked Potato Gel
  1. 4 tablespoons potato starch
  2. 2 cups of baked potato stock
  3. Ketchup
Instructions
  1. Wash the potatoes under cold water and dry with paper towel. Cut into the skin of each potato 1 cm. Toss the potatoes with ½ cup of olive and season with the salt.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes at 450 F.
  3. Remove from oven and place the baked potatoes in a bowl with 1 litre of hot water (95 C, slightly cooler than boiling temperature), cover it and let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
  4. Strain the mixture with a fine strainer, reserving the baked potato stock. Chill stock in preparation for next step.
  5. Put chilled baked potato stock into a pot and whisk in the potato starch. Continue whisking the starch and stock together and bring it to boil, forming a gel. Remove from heat.
  6. Drying: Spread the potato gel on a sheet of parchment paper. The gel should be about 3 mm thick.
  7. Dry in the oven at 135 F for 2 hours until fully dry.
  8. Frying: Break the dried sheet into irregular pieces about the size of playing card. Fry these potato chips at 350 F until clear and crisp. Remove and place on paper towel, then season with kosher salt.
  9. Squeeze ketchup on them so it looks like blood is dripping from them.
Notes
  1. This recipe is time consuming, but worth it for the effect.
  2. Take a squeeze bottle and squeeze the ketchup all over the chips. Don't add too much as you want it to look like people have been dipping their fingers in a cutting themselves on the glass.

  2. 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
  3. 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh horseradish
  4. 1 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

  7. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  8. Prepared cocktail sauce, for serving
Instructions
  1. Arrange shrimp in a 6 1/2- to 7-cup brain-shaped mold with tails facing upwards in vertical rows.
  2. Fill a glass bowl with 1 2/3 cups cold water; sprinkle gelatin over water and let stand 5 minutes. In a small saucepan, cook gelatin mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin has dissolved. Whisk in lemon juice, horseradish, salt, Old Bay, and cayenne pepper until well combined.
  3. Pour gelatin mixture over shrimp in mold. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing down on the surface. Fit a plate into mold and weight with cans. Refrigerate until set, about 5 hours. Invert mold onto a serving platter; serve with cocktail sauce.
Notes
  1. for more of a gruesome effect. arrange the shrimp brain on top of a foam head that has been cut flat. Wrap some gauss around the head and it becomes very horrific quickly.

Ingredients
  1. 1 dozen eggs – hard boiled
  2. 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad cream
  3. 2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. pinch of white pepper
  6. 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  7. Red food color to make the orange color
  8. 2 green onions for stems
  9. Smoked Spanish paprika, for garnish
Instructions
  1. 1. Cover the eggs with enough cold water to cover the eggs completely. Bring to a boil. Boil for a 2 minute, then cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain the hot water out of the pan and fill the pan with cold water. After about 5 minutes, peel the eggs and slice eggs length-wise and remove the yolks.
  2. 2. Place the yolks and all of the other ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until very smooth. You can use a hand mixer or even a food processor to really want them creamy. Mound the yolk mixture into the egg whites or place it into a Ziploc bag to pipe it out.
  3. 3. Wet your finger and pat the surface of the filling smooth. Use a toothpick to draw lines like 'pumpkin' indentations. Sprinkle with paprika. Cut up the green part of the onion to make tiny stems and add them to finish off the pumpkin look.
