The Serial Killer Cookbook by Ashley Lecker

(1 customer review)



Book Summary

Bring your love of true crime into the kitchen with meals ranging from the bizarre (a single unpitted black olive) to the gluttonous (a dozen deep-fried shrimp, a bucket of fried chicken, French fries, and a pound of strawberries), inspired by Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and other notorious death row inmates.

The perfect gift for murderinos and true crime fans, The Serial Killer Cookbook: Last Meals pairs serial killer trivia with the recipes of the meals these killers ate during their final hours. With full-color photos, chilling true crime facts, and easy-to-follow steps, you’ll be cooking up killer meals in no time. This collection of recipes is both delicious and surprising, and spans breakfast staples to indulgent desserts, including:

  • Seared Steak, Hash Browns, Toast, and Fried Eggs (given to but not eaten by Ted Bundy, serial killer)
  • Chicken Parmesan and Alfredo Pasta (eaten by Ruth Snyder, murderer)
  • Justice, Equality, and World Peace (eaten by Odell Barnes, murderer)
  • Mac and Cheese (eaten by Gustavo Julian Garcia, murderer)
  • And much more!

    Aren’t you curious as to what killers will have as their last meal in prison? I never knew I needed to know! … and now I kinda wish I didn’t. Who only wants ONE PITTED OLIVE as their last meal? Ok, ok, we already know these killers (not all serial btw) are psychopaths but food is food y’all. WTF. But hey, as a person who loves reading about this subject matter AND loves to cook – well, this just seemed like an absolute must have.

    Some of the recipes look great and others are beyond simple and there are a lot of ice cream recipes – not sure we needed every one of them or a recipe for MELTED ice cream. Um…. Yeah. I did enjoy reading about the different killers but there was nothing new to me that I didn’t already know. Except for their food orders, or non orders.

    So where do I stand with this one? I’m not really sure. I’m going to try cooking most of these recipes but giving a harsh no to the pitted olive debacle. Needs more blood and less ice cream in my opinion. Gonna just run it down the middle. 🤷
