Press Release for The Comforts of Cafe Himbo and Friends

Joe Zaso made a name for himself as one of indie horror’s most charming leading men but ultimately discovered that his favorite knives were located in the kitchen. In 2012 – after two decades of fighting demons, zombies, inbred hillbillies, and masked slashers – Zaso founded Cafe Himbo, a brand based around cooking his treasured family recipes and sharing those from his close friends in the horror industry.

His debut book, The Cafe Himbo Cookbook, featured recipes from Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet), Rutanya Alda (Amityville II: The Possession), and many more. It was followed in annual succession by The Cafe Himbo Cookbook IICafe Himbo’s Just DessertsBreakfast in Bed with Cafe Himbo, and Cafe Himbo for the Holidays.
