A cookbook for fans of the Golden Girls, the recipes and photos included bring back the fun, humor, and delight of the hit show and the beloved characters. Filled with innovative recipes by renowned chef Christopher Styler, and beautiful photos by New York Times food photographer Andrew Scrivani, plus fun quotes, info, and photographs from the show!
There will be Italian meals like Clams Fra Diavlo in Sophia’s chapter, and Southern food like honey-bourbon glazed carrots in Blanche’s, and of course some amazing cheesecakes. And what Golden Girls cookbook would be complete without Rose's favorite Scandinavian dishes, like St. Olaf Friendship cake, a simple, buttery treat.
From drinks and appetizers, to salads and mains, there is something to delight every fan in this witty and approachable cookbook.
