Magnus Nilsson Makes 'Frankenchicken' for Lucky Peach

New, 3 comments

Here's a delightfully creepy video from Lucky Peach and Fäviken chef Magnus Nillson. The video, created by Lucky Peach editor-in-chief Chris Ying and Dark Rye's Ira Chute, is an accompaniment to a piece from Issue 6: The Apocalypse in which Nilsson artfully creates a "Frankenchicken" using pork sirloin, "very low quality chicken," meat glue, and staples. Delicious.

The video brings the viewer to the year 2034, some 15 years after a world wide poultry ban has gone into effect due to the toxicity of industrial chicken. Nilsson, who is still running the kitchens at his remote 12-seat restaurant, now serves roast chicken with a twist. He adds pork to a chicken carcass, and staples chicken skin to the pork before trussing and roasting the "bird." The final product is served tableside with brussels sprouts and "a full-bodied bourdeaux." Below, the mad science of a future without chicken meat.
