Outlander Kitchen

If you're the type of reader that completely immerses yourself in your favorite author's books, having a companion piece is like gold. This is the perfect way to continue to love your Outlander world- making the recipes inspired by your favorite characters.

Food is a passion of mine, so I was naturally drawn to another chef who was also passionate about combining her cooking talents with one of my favorite series. Theresa mentions that the Outlander Kitchen is an Outlander cookbook- not a Scottish or historical cookbook. This means we get to explore the cuisine of different countries and explore different recipes inspired by the characters in Diana Gabaldon's books. This also allows Theresa to adapt recipes to modern time- and for me to not have to ask my butcher to procure me a sheep's head and boil it in water before making a recipe. It is the best way to continue to live in your favorite series.

There are many great aspects to this official companion cookbook. Each recipe has a quote from one of the Outlander books along with commentary from Theresa. In addition to the fun of reading the quote from the book that inspired the recipes, is the fact that the recipes are very easy to follow and understand. Most of the recipes I tried and loved, like the Potato Fritters inspired from The Fiery Cross, had only six ingredients and an easy to follow method. The pictures that accompanied a lot of the recipes had my mouth watering and made me sure that I could produce this myself. A lot of the recipes also utilize ingredients that are a staple in the Highlands.

I have wanted to try and make a bannock- and Theresa's recipe, starting with a quote from Drums of Autumn was perfect. And it didn't hurt that I ate it while watching the newest Outlander episode.

While I loathe Black Jack as a character, I am in love with Theresa's Black Jack Randall's Dark Chocolate Lavender Fudge. Again, it was another easy recipe with only five ingredients and was a breeze to follow. And of course it tasted excellent! Even though I still loathe Black Jack, I love the fudge I eat as I look forward to his demise.

THE OUTLANDER KITCHEN is the perfect must have for Outlander lovers- and if you are like my book club we have already planned an Outlander night of book and movie talk with recipes from Theresa's book. This is the must have cookbook for Outlander lovers!
