The last time I dressed up for Halloween was a decade ago, when I made a last-minute decision to go to a grad-school party dressed as the ocean. My costume consisted of a blue tracksuit, fake seaweed affixed to my flip-flops, and a belt hung with guppies swimming in water-filled plastic bags. There were boys at the party, and the fish got eaten.
My ocean outfit wasn't meant to be a food costume. But for gourmands intent on masquerading as something edible, there are now dozens of legitimate food costumes from which to choose. Halloween retailers sell taco costumes, chili pepper costumes, and ketchup costumes. If you and your dearest want to demonstrate your closeness, you can dress as bacon and eggs.
We're wagering Voracious readers are among the most likely to don a culinary costume. Right now, you may be busily sewing your listeria-infected cantaloupe costume, sausage suit, or sexy chef jacket. We want to see it. And, we're guessing, so does everybody else.
Send a picture of your food costume to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll post the very best images next week. Happy Halloween!
