The official cookbook of the series, perfectly titled “The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers” has hit the New York Times Best-Seller list, the book had already been a “best seller” on sites like Amazon for the last few weeks.
The cookbook was written by Loren Bouchard, as well as the writers of Bob’s Burgers, with Cole Bowden working as a contributor. The book reached number 9 this week under the NYT popular “FOOD AND DIET” section.
The Bob’s Burgers Cookbook has been a popular gift since it was released and has frequently sold-out where available online. The book teaches cooks how to recreate the famous “gimmick burgers” (as Big Bob would say) that Bob Belcher creates in his restaurant.
