LONDON, Tuesday 21st August 2012: The booming London street food scene will face a new challenger to the taste crown this week as the first mobile gastronomers to offer a menu made up entirely of brains and offal roll into town.

Certain to cater to the tastes of customers, both dead and alive, who have a penchant for the innermost of body parts, The Gory Gourmet was created to celebrate next week’s release of zombie thriller series The Walking Dead Season 2, which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 27th August.

The delectable delicacies on offer will utilise meaty morsels that are all too often overlooked with a tantalising menu devised and developed by street food king, chef Mark Jankel. Formerly of Notting Hill Brasserie and now running the wildly successful mobile food company Street Kitchen, Mark will work his magic to freshly prepare the food on site.

The menu comprises three delicious brain dishes with some offally good sides, all using responsibly sourced British ingredients …

The Menu:

Big Brain Burger

Brain burger with smoked mustard mayo, lettuce and cheese in a sesame seed bun

Crispy Brain Dippers

Crispy chunks of brain with barbecue sauce

Brain Salad Wrap

Crispy chunks of brain with wild rocket and tarragon mayo

Skewered Hearts

On Wednesday 22nd August, The Gory Gourmet will park up at world-renowned Camden Lock Market, just inside the entrance to Camden Lock Place, and will give away free servings of the dishes on offer to the lucky customers who are first in the lunchtime queue from 12.30pm.

On Thursday 23rd, it will move on to a Lower Marsh Market, Waterloo for another lunchtime serving up the dishes to hungry Londoners, again on a first-come-first served basis. Potential customers will be able to track the trailer’s progress by visiting facebook.com/TheWalkingDeadUK and will also be asked to check in to the Facebook Location: The Gory Gourmet – before redeeming their free meal.

Further locations will be confirmed over the coming weeks.

Mark Jankel said: I can’t wait to bring this completely new offering to the public this week…It’s a great opportunity to use some unusual British ingredients. After a heavy morning in the office our customers should have the appetite of the Walking Dead, lucky for us it means we should have some long queues!”

The second instalment of the post-apocalyptic, smash hit TV series, The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season follows police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) as he continues to lead a group of survivors across the USA, in the midst of a zombie epidemic.

Out on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 27th August, the critically acclaimed series is the perfect accompaniment to a brain burger.

The story concludes with the ultimate ending, a picture-perfect Royal Wedding.

The movie features some of the most iconic highlights of the couple’s relationship – from the moment when the future king gallantly forked out £200 to watch Kate model in a charity catwalk show, to the first time his future bride met the Royal family, and the utterly romantic day he proposed to Kate in his beloved Africa.  Every major milestone in the couple’s enchanting romance is celebrated in this truly historic ‘made for TV’ love story.

British actress Camilla Luddington stars as Miss Middleton, with New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers-Swindell as her Royal beau, Prince William. Camilla, who like her on-screen persona was also brought up in leafy Berkshire, has previously had roles in the hit American shows Days Of Our Lives and C.S.I, whilst Nico‘s credentials include Law & Order and Edge Of Darkness.

Describing her role in the most talked about Royal movie of our time; Camilla Luddington said: “Viewers are going to get a great love story. If you’re a romantic at heart you’re going to love it.”

Produced by 9-time Emmy decorated Frank Konigsberg, the film co-stars Hollywood veteran Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) as Prince Charles, Serena Scott-Thomas (Nip/Tuck) as Kate’s mother Carole, and Samantha Whittaker (Casualty) as Kate’s best friend.
