A Look Inside True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps

From Publishers Weekly

Dedicated fans of the HBO series True Blood (and of punny recipe titles) will get a kick out of this playful volume. The creator and an associate producer get help from a former New Orleans Times-Picayune staff writer Shalett and Louisiana native cooking teacher Bienvenu, and the result is part series scrapbook, with plenty of stills from the show and all recipe notes and chapter intros attributed to characters, and part cookbook and cocktail guide. Twenty of the book's 85 recipes are for drinks, purportedly from Fangtasia and Lou Pine's Biker Bar, for such concoctions as Dead on the Beach, Vampade, Moonshine Rising, and Hair of the Wolf. Though vampire references and related imagery are hardly appetizing, readers who look past that will find a few decadent recipes for mere mortals. In his preface, Ball specifically recommends Summer Tallulah Huckaby's Betrothal Biscuits. Other notable entries include Up-in-Arms Biscuits and Gravy, What a Fried Chicken, Confederate Ambrosia, The Pearl in My Oyster Po' Boy, A Hush-ed Puppy, and Sookie Stackhouse's Fried Apple Pies, Classic Chess Pie, and Glazed Fresh Strawberry Pie in the homestyle Southern collection. (Oct.)

This truly is a great cookbook! First, it's beautiful...the pictures they took from the series are stunning. Second, the recipes are great! At first I was a bit concerned as there are a lot of drink recipes and the food recipes seemed pretty standard. But over this weekend I cooked 4 of the recipes and they were SO GOOD! I received rave reviews from my friends and family. This is definitely something any True Blood fan would enjoy...and especially if they have a knack for cooking!

I'm not sure what crazy devil pitched a True Blood-themed Southern cookbook but may Lilith bless you! It is a seriously beautiful, hardcover book chock-full of artery clogging recipes like hushpuppies, banana pudding, gumbo, fancy shrimp cocktails, baking powder biscuits, and crawfish dip. And each page also features a full-color photo from the beloved vampire show. In the wide-spectrum of crazy TV companions, this tops them all.

I expected this collection to be full of shortcuts, but it was authentic. No bisquik, no mixes, no sauces. This is the southern cooking I grew up with. All from scratch. Great gift for Trubies, fun stuff. I have made a lot of the recipes so far and they all turned out very well, so whoever put them together did a good job.

LOVE THE BOOK!

Its a great collector's item for show fans and a great book full of yummy recipes for the spicy cajun style dishes fan as well! I think they couldve included more recipes featured on the show like Lafayette's Cajun Margaritas and Tara's Orange Marzipan Drink, among many others, but I think it was written before some of those episodes aired.

Love the pictures and the little presentation of the recipes by all the characters. It was like hearing them speak! It even gives bits of details that one couldve missed on the show. Its great! I hope they feature more recipes on the show, so they have enough material for a second book, which Ill totally buy!

I would say if you are a fan of the show and like cooking or drinks this book is for you. It seems to have a good mix of drink and food that are themed to the show and to the area that it is set in. the book is well made from what I can tell so far and offers a lot of pictures from the show to bring back memories from the past seasons. The drink recipes seem nice and the food looks good and fitting for that area. I would recommend this book to anyone that either collects themed cookbooks off of TV shows, or for fans of that show, and also people that would like some down southern food and drink.

This book is a must for any true "TRUE BLOOD" fan. I got this book just days ago and have already made several of the goodies. I did think there would be more food and less drinks but I still love the book. I do wish they had a picture for every thing offered in the book. They have greay pictures all throughout the book. Brings back memories of the show. JUST LOVE IT!!!

When I ordered this I was afraid that I would be getting a book with pretty pictures, but lame recipes. Boy was I wrong! The recipes are wonderful and I have successfully made many of the items in it, all of which were super yummy. The pictures are nice, but the food is by far the best part of this cookbook. I highly recommend it for fans of True Blood or fans of good food. Either group will be happy with what they get!

Many times cookbooks based on TV shows or movies slack off on the recipes in favor of pictures and trivia. The True Blood cookbook does not have this problem. It's a great cook book and is entertaining to read/flip through as well.

PROS
-the directions are easy to follow
-there are lots of recipes (this is actually a cook book, not just a book about the show. also, DRINK RECIPES.)
-the recipes are pretty authentic (my family is from New Orleans)
-the food is delicious! (I might have developed a slight obsession with hoecakes)
-it's a gorgeous book and almost looks like it belongs on a coffee table

CONS
-it's a gorgeous book (you won't want to get it messy in the kitchen!)

If you like True Blood and/or good southern food, you need this cookbook!
