Bon Appetit, True Blood Fans!By
Have you always felt tempted by the meals whipped up by Lafayette at Merlotte’s? Excited to try Gran’s pecan pie? Well you might get your chance to try authentic Bon Temps cuisine a little later this year! HBO and Chronicle Books have just announced that The True Blood Cookbook will be published in Fall 2012.
The official publication will be by series creator Alan Ball (together with Karen Sommer Shallett and Marcelle Bienvenu). It’s not going to be just a collection of boring instructions on how to make biscuits or gumbo, but will instead include photos from Seasons 1 to 4, short feature stories on the show, and of course the best recipes for delicious southern fare.
Ball is clearly throwing his weight behind this project, and says, “This book will be substantial, with recipes that capture the unique ambiance, dark humor, and complexity of characters that make up the magical and offbeat world of True Blood. In other words, it will be a worthy of ‘Trubies’ everywhere.” Chronicle Books adds, “The True Blood Cookbook will relish the flavors of the True Blood universe with plenty of authentic dish (sic) —both on the plate, and behind-the-scenes.”
No doubt, rabid Truebies will be lining up to get their copies of the cookbook come fall!
Bon appetit honorary Bon Temps residents!
