To promote the upcoming The Walking Dead premiere, Miss Cakehead collaborated with London Mess to make human burgers. As The Walking Dead season 5 begins on October 13, 2014 in the UK, these fake human flesh burgers were inspired by the previous season's finale and the cannibal-inhabited Terminus.
As it would be incredibly unhealthy (not to mention controversial and disgusting) to offer an actual human burger in honor of The Walking Dead premiere, London Mess chef James Thomlinson used a combination of beef, bone marrow, chicken liver, pork and veal. As photographed by Justin Ramsden, the human flesh burger recipe was based on a description from author William Seabrook who ate human meat in west Africa.
On September 30, a pop-up store will be offering free burgers in east London.
