“Welcome to the Devil’s Kitchen.”
Hellen Die enjoys making delicious food, but she separates herself from the pack there because most of her food looks like it could kill you.
An employee of a tech startup by day, Hellen uses her spare time to create weird and creepy food. Her latest creation is the Facehugger Feast Roast Chicken, and while it may be delicious and edible, you’ll probably think twice before diving into this bird.
Using a full chicken, some snow crab legs, and a chicken sausage for a tail, Hellen managed to create an edible replica of the Facehugger from Alien vs. Predator. Sure, chicken and seafood is a terrible combination, but the creation is spot on.
Hellen says that she developed her love of the weird by watching monster flicks with her dad as a kid. Her previous work in the film industry allowed her the skills to create weird molds in order to make her edible monsters, which she documents on her site EatTheDead.com.
Though her family is supportive of her endeavors, Hellen says she’s been barred from cooking turkey on Thanksgiving, thanks to last year’s chest burster turkey.
“They’re phenomenally tolerant — to a limit,” Hellen said in a phone call. She added, “They don’t want me to traumatize extended family members and friends who may not be able to handle a Facehugger at the family meal.”
So this year, Hellen is in charge of the rolls, but she’s got a plan for those too.
“It’s kind of a fun challenge to see what i can get kicked out of cooking,” she said.
