Halloween Recipes and ritual connections between food and the dead are ancient and cross many cultures. The Halloween Americans celebrate today is a very modern twist on an ancient pagan ritual.

Did you know that by the twentieth century, Halloween parties for both children and adults had become a common way to mark the day? After World War II, the American practice of Trick-or-Treat began in earnest. Neighborhoods became delighted in watching the costumed children go door-to-door begging for treats. This was the period when theme parties were trendy. So we have been serving severed fingers, bat wings and brains at our Halloween parties for decades.
