The following recipes have not appeared
in fanfic, they *are* fanfic.
Since the X-Files movie is called "Fight the
Future", these recipes
are in the style of Marinetti's "Futurist
Cookbook" of the '30s, which
was about food as art, and featured recipe names and
foods as unusual as any X-File. So, this is food as
Some of these recipes are inspired by
episodes, some by characters,
some by the movie. Enjoy.
Love and Fate
a big glass of iced tea
flavored with root beer schnapps, or root beer Torani
syrup for those
who wish to see the future from behind the wheel.
(because she *is* the future)
Fresh Hawaiian pineapple chunks to represent the tropics,
crushed ice to
represent the Arctic, spinach juice to represent the
triumph of good
over evil through wholesome cartoon violence, united in
Serve with gummi worms and spiders.
Conundrum in Baltimore
A slice of beef liver and a filet of
fish, placed one atop the other and grilled together.
melted cheese, flavored with
peppers and feline-attracting anchovies. Serve with
tortilla chips and thick-cut French fries which is what

Angel-hair pasta with Diablo Sauce,

Hybrid corn, grilled over an open flame
Slices of angelfood cake with six

Cookie crumbs layered in cups with dark chocolate
pudding. Poke pretzel sticks or "twig" crackers
into the cups.
Dreyers' ice cream with chocolate bridge-mix
and chocolate sprinkles on top. Do not share this with
I have not given directions for making
Habanero sauce or
Diablo sauce; I have not given instructions for making
cookies, or chocolate pudding either. We don't want you
to be stuck
in the kitchen cooking, we want you to be watching
X-Files and sharing
these unusual goodies with your friends. Habanero sauce
is made of
Habanero peppers, it can be bought in bottles or
fresh-made at any
Mexican deli. Diablo Sauce, also called Salsa Fra
Diavolo, is a spicy
tomato sauce - recipes for making it from scratch can be
found in any
Italian cookbook, and it can also be bought in jars. The
beef-liver-and-fish thing is adapted slightly from
"Immortal Trout", it's definitely odd enough
for fans of The Conundrum
and Tooms, and it's delicious.
