Here’s my verdict on Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls.
To Read: Yes, if you are a Gilmore Girls fan. Each recipe description includes a reference to a story on the TV show. Even if you don’t cook, you will enjoy these descriptions. If you are not a Gilmore Girls fan, you can probably skip it. There is not a lot of additional food or cooking content in the book, except in the cake section where there are some decorating tips.
To Look At: Sure. Each recipe has a photo, and they are well-done. But there is not a lot new here unless you want to see what your favorite food mentions on Gilmore Girls would look like up close, especially the beautiful cakes.
To Cook From: Yes (except maybe the Santa Burger, which looks pretty gross). Besides the cocktail recipe I posted about earlier, I also made the Blueberry Muffins recipe, which was quite good. There is a pretty big range of recipes here, from basic to more exotic to just goofy.
Let me know if you tried out any of the Gilmore Girls recipes. I would love to have a Gilmore Girls party and try out some more dishes. I will let you know if I do.
And if you already love this cookbook, there is good news! A second GG cookbook by Kristi Carlson is in the works. According to Carlson’s blog, Eat Like a Gilmore: Daily Cravings will be out in the fall of this year. Can’t wait to check it out!
