( Brian Anderson, Eat Like a Gilmore by Kristin Carlson)
If you're a fan of Gilmore Girls, you know that Rory and Lorelai love food.
Chef Sookie St. James might not be part of the highly anticipated Netflix revival, but that doesn't mean you can't look forward to new and delicious Stars Hollow-inspired food. Eat Like a Gilmore, Kristi Carlson's cookbook comprised of "recipes inspired by the chefs of Stars Hollow," is already in-the-making!
There's a Kickstarter underway to help fund production costs for the Eat Like a Gilmore cookbook, which is slated for a December 2016 release. According to the description, meeting the $20,000 goal "is a 'break even' scenario" for the chef/author when you factor in the cost of ingredients, photography, shipping, etc.
For a $30 donation, fans receive a first-edition copy of the cookbook. You can even suggest a recipe of their own to include for as little as $2!
In a video promoting the Eat Like a Gilmore cookbook, chef Kristi channels multiple Gilmore Girls characters as she describes her plan for the book, which will be primarily made up of three collections. "The first is items you would find on a menu in a small-town diner," she says, citing "cheeseburgers" as an example. "The second is foods that you would feel comfortable serving at a Friday night dinner...and the third is foods that you might see served at a charming, eclectic independent inn."
Hungry yet? It sounds like there's something for everyone, and as chef Kristi asks, "Whose imagination wouldn't be captured by the mention of a s'mores wedding cake or pumpkin pancakes served with apple butter, or peach sauce made with maple syrup or a sausage wrapped in a pancake, tied with a piece of bacon?"
Yum. More information on the Eat Like a Gilmore cookbook can be found on its Kickstarter page.
