The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse: A Cookbook & Culinary Survival Guide

We rated this book:


This is an amazing survival guide. Built around the trope of the collapse of civilization due to a plague of the living dead, it takes readers through all the many different skills needed to survive a breakdown of our normal foodways, and even thrive. The zombie story is a little silly (until it happens!), but there is no nonsense about the survival skills presented. This book focuses on procuring and producing food at every stage after collapse. After using up what’s in the fridge, this book quickly moves to growing your own vegetables, foraging (including how to determine if a plant is edible), hunting (and field dressing and butchering), canning/pickling/fermenting, finding edible insects, and even aquatic farming. Each chapter contains recipes as well, and you will find how to procure clean water, cook in the wild, make traps, assemble a survival kit, basic bushcraft, and more. It is surprisingly comprehensive, and entertaining as well; the hand-drawn pictures of zombies add to the fun while the drawings of plants, animals, and necessary accouterments leave no room for error. It’s an amusing presentation of skills useful for anyone to know to prepare for any emergency.
