These Black Dishes Use Lava Salt, Charcoal Powder and Squid Ink

This Halloween feast is delicious, sophisticated and spooky, and doesn't use any food coloring to achieve its haunting food effects.

Food blog Spoon Fork Bacon collaborated with Crate & Barrel to create this elaborate Halloween feast. It includes festive colored dishes like black rolls, squid ink pasta with garlic and Parmesan and gin fizzes with black salt rims. Not only do all of the dishes look absolutely mouthwatering, but they're also made with all-natural ingredients. Small touches like blackberries on the salad and crushed chocolate wafers in the creme fraiche pana cotta give each food item a black or grey tinge without the use of chemical additives.

This Halloween feast is an elegant themed meal that gives grown-ups a chance to enjoy the spookiest day of the year in style.
