Recently I read that one of my favourite TV shows (Orange is The New Black) has spawned an actual cookbook. Turns out that there are a lot of cookbooks inspired by TV shows and movies! Check out these awesome culinary odes to the big and small screen right here:

  • </p><h4>Orange is the New Black: The Cookbook</h4><p>Popular Netflix series Orange is the New Black takes place inside a prison. So, one might worry a little what kind of recipes are in the cookbook. After all, prison food is not known for its yumminess. However, if you are a big fan of this prison drama, this cookbook may be worth your while. It includes 100+ photos from the show that highlight memorable moments, 65 tasty recipes and 20 sidebars that expand upon the fiction of the show. Available October 2014.</p><p>Recipe examples: Red’s Chicken Kiev, Miss Claudette’s Coconut Cake, Prison Punch.
  • </p><h4>True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps</h4><p>Yes, vampires don’t eat…not exactly. But the werewolves, fairies and telepaths of Southern rural town Bon Temps do! The recipes of this cookbook are inspired by Southern food, the kind that you would find when you stroll into Merlotte’s or Sookie Stackhouse’s kitchen. It includes funny quotes by characters of the show, photos & anecdotes, and 82 yummy recipes.</p><p>Recipe examples: Sloppy Jason by Jason Stackhouse, Brujo Burger by Lafayette Reynolds, Last Rites Pecan Pie (Gran’s Pie!!!) by Tara Thornton.

Sure, the poor people from District 12 don’t have a lot to eat, but they can make a mean game stew. And this cookbook doesn’t just feature recipes from the poorer districts; it also includes outrageously rich recipes from the Capitol!</p><p>Recipe examples: Gale’s Bone-Pickin’ Big Game Soup, Katniss’s Favourite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums, Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake.
