So, in my searching last week for new books about tv, I found a subgenre of books that I thought deserved its own post: Cookbooks based on TV shows. My two favourites that I can’t wait to read are Feeding Hannibal and Damn Fine Cherry Pie!
Doctor Who: The Official Cookbook (11 Aug 2016)
Whether you’re planning a party to watch the latest episode, need a showstopping cake that’s bigger on the inside, or want a taste of the TARDIS at teatime, this is the ultimate collection of dishes from across space and time.
Keep the munchies at bay with a fleet of Atraxi Snax, and serve an Ood Head Bread with your dinner. Create your very own Picnic at Asgard, or invite the Zygon Pie into your house. And say ‘Hello, Sweetie’ to a deadly-delicious Dalektable Army, a Peek-a-Boo Pandorica cake, or some simple jelly babies.
Each easy-to-follow recipe has step-by-step instructions to show how you can make meals, snacks, cakes and sweets that are truly out of this world.
Feeding Hannibal: A Connoisseurs Cookbook (18 oct 2016)
Feeding Hannibal: A Connoisseurs Cookbook is a collection of easy-to-follow recipes inspired by the show and created by its food stylist, Janice Poon. Each recipe is accompanied by fascinating insiders anecdotes, delightful artwork and revealing behind-the-scenes photos of stars and crew on the set of Hannibal.

Fans of the show will be dying to get their hands, and jaws, on this new pun-tastic, post-apocalyptic instalment that features edible recipes inspired by key moments on the show, such as Carol’s Tough Nut Cookies and Rick’s Ribs.
