With the Netflix revival of the ‘Gilmore Girls’ just a few weeks away, many fans have be reliving the best episodes from the popular series’ past seasons. Of course all seven seasons are available on Netflix, but if you want to take your fandom to the next level, considering catering your next streaming party with ‘Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls‘.
You’ll have plenty of time to practice the recipes, the new episodes of the Gilmore Girls won’t be available until November 25, 2016 and the book releases this month.
Fans that have been eagerly anticipating the new season have done wonders for Skyhorse Publishing and Kristi Carlson, the author of the book, which has seen tremendous success as we countdown the days until the new season. The unofficial guide has skyrocketed up the charts over the past few weeks, to land at #7 on Amazon’s Holiday & Entertaining bestseller list.
The book, now available for pre-order through Amazon and Barnes & Noble, reaches bookstores October 25. It draws inspiration from the TV show’s Luke’s Diner, Sookie’s eclectic inn fare, Emily’s fancy Friday night dinners, and favorites from around Stars Hollow. From “The Birthday Girl” (the cocktail crafted especially for Rory’s twenty-first birthday) to Sookie’s “Macaroni & Cheese in a Jalapeño-Chipotle Cream Sauce” (a gooey concoction, misguidedly offered to Lorelai as the “kid’s food” when it was first created)—it’s all there.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Kristi on this fun and unique project,” said Abigail Gehring, Skyhorse’s associate publisher. “We had high hopes for the book from the start and every piece has come together beautifully. It’s perfect for Gilmore Girls fans and we’re so excited about the enthusiastic responses the book is receiving already!”
Fans of the show are as passionate about the series as the main characters are about food and caffeine, and demand for all things Gilmore Girls is growing. Recently, more than two hundred coffee shops nationwide converted their venues into Luke’s Diner coffee shop pop-ups.
Anyone with an Internet connection knows that the Netflix revival isn’t the only thing Gilmore Girls fans are looking forward to this fall. For example, from October 21–23, The Gilmore Girls Fan Festival takes over the real Connecticut town of Washington Depot (on which the show’s fictional setting, Stars Hollow, was based), and Eat Like a Gilmore will be there too. On October 21, come meet author Kristi Carlson; she will be performing a live cooking demo and signing copies of her book.
