Attention: There’s an ‘Eat Like a Gilmore’ cookbook and it’s everything we need right now
"If you’ve always dreamed of living like a Gilmore Girl, then hold on to your plaid skirts because your chance is here.
Someone’s released a cookbook packed full of recipes inspired by the show, split into three collections: Luke’s Diner, Emily’s Friday Night Dinners, and Sookie’s Inn.
‘Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls’ has been created by Kristi Carlson – a Gilmore Girls superfan.
Kristi says that she’d been hoping someone would make a Gilmore cookbook since the first series aired back in 2000.
But no such book existed.
‘For fifteen years, I’ve been patiently waiting for a cookbook so I could try all the Gilmore foods,’ she says.
‘Summer 2015 is when my patience finally gave way. I decided to just figure them out myself.’"

The Gilmore Girls Cookbook Is Out — Now We Can Cook Like Sookie

"All true fans of the show know you must have the proper snacks to accompany, well, all of life's activities, but especially TV-watching. We learned in a very early episode, "That Damn Donna," that the ladies won't even let others join their television marathons without an offering of pizza. So, to honor the Gilmore goddesses properly, we need to have the perfect refreshments for the reboot. That's where Kristi Carlson comes in.

Earlier this year, Carlson, a baker, caterer, and Gilmore Girls super-fan, launched a Kickstarter campaign to help turn her dream of a Stars Hollow cookbook into reality. Just as we've been counting down the days until A Year In The Life, series devotees have also been eagerly anticipating the release of the cookbook. Yesterday, Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls finally hit the shelves, and it's already an Amazon best seller."

Third Coast Bakery Featured in New “Eat Like A Gilmore” Cookbook

"Calling all my fellow Gilmore Girls fans! Third Coast Bakery in Suttons Bay is baking up a special recipe for the new cookbook based on the show. And the book, Eat Like A Gilmore, came out today!

Eat Like A Gilmore was funded by and created for fans of the show and includes 100 food and drink recipes inspired by Luke’s Diner, Dragonfly Inn, Emily’s Friday night dinners and, of course, Lorelai and Rory.

“I’m beyond excited to contribute to the cookbook,”says Third Coast Bakery owner Heather Burson. “Gilmore Girls is very close to my heart, full of strong women, complex relationships, quirky townspeople and fast-paced smart humor. I’ve watched it over and over for years and it always feels like going home, yet it never gets old. To create a recipe for a dish featured in the show is thrilling, and then to share that recipe with Gilmore fans worldwide is humbling.”

"Forget the zippy dialogue and complex female relationships, the real heart of Gilmore Girls is food. After all, Lorelai and Rory bond with Rory’s grandparents each week over Friday night dinners, Sookie regularly whips up gourmet dishes with Jackson’s produce, and Luke’s diner is basically a free cafeteria for Lorelai and Rory. And while the Gilmore girls themselves were famously terrible chefs, this brand-new unofficial Gilmore Girls-themed cookbook will ensure you don’t have to be. Author Kristi Carlson has assembled dozens of recipes in her upcoming book Eat Like A Gilmore, and we’re debuting one exclusively here at The A.V. Club: Founders Day Punch "

"You don’t need to watch Gilmore Girls for long to learn how important food is the series. Lorelai and Rory aren’t cooks so they order take out and eat at Luke’s diner regularly; they have movie nights with an epic amount of snacks; their relationship with Emily and Richard mostly plays out over Friday night dinners; Lorelai’s best friend Sookie is a chef. You get the idea. So really, a Gilmore Girls-inspired cookbook is just what the world needs, and Kristi Carlson is trying to fund such a book—Eat Like a Gilmore—through Kickstarter."

Well one person is willing to try. Baker and caterer Kristi Carlson is writing the Eat Like A Gilmore cookbook that honors all of the Friday-night dinners, Chef Sookie St. James concoctions and Luke Danes diner fare that kept the residents of Stars Hallow nourished over the years.

And no, it isn’t Melissa McCarthy’s character come to life, who played Sookie St. James, the chef at the local Independence Inn.
