The Unauthorized Whovian Cookbook (4/5 stars, currently priced at $4.99)
It’s the perfect time to get this book, with the 50th Anniversary Dr. Who Special coming up this weekend! From Amazon:
Your taste buds are about to take a wibbly wobbly, timey wimey adventure through the 2005 Doctor Who reboot. Megafan and food writer Chris-Rachael Oseland spent a year rewatching all of series one through six and experimenting in her kitchen to bring you a fresh recipe for every single episode.
There are recipes in here for every level of cook. If you’re terrified of the kitchen, there are things so simple even Micky the Idiot couldn’t get them wrong. For the experienced chefs, there are advanced fish and beef dishes that wouldn’t be amiss on the Starship Titanic. Along the way, you’ll also find plenty of edible aliens to decorate the table at your next Doctor Who viewing party.
This book is a treat for any Whovian who wants to offer more than a plate of fish fingers and a bowl of custard at your next viewing party. Want to host an elegant dinner party to show off your new Tardis corset? Start the evening with a Two Streams Garden Cocktail followed by Baked Hath, Marble Cucumber Circuits with Vesuvian Fire Dipping Sauce, Professor Yana’s Gluten Neutrino Map Binder, Slitheen Eggs, and some of Kazran’s Night Sky Fog Cups for dessert.
If you’re just getting a few friends together to watch the latest episode, why not offer them an Ood Mezze Plate to munch on as stragglers wander in followed by some quick and easy Fish Custard Tacos, Open Faced Dalek Ironsides, Sontaran Soldiers, and a Cinnamon Pull Apart Crack in the Wall. They can wash it all down with a cup of the Pond’s Wedding Punch.
Lets be honest. No Whovian gathering is complete without them, so you also get an entire bonus chapter dedicated to interesting alternative takes on fish fingers and custard.
This comprehensive cookbook includes eighteen adult beverages, more than two dozen recipes for vegetarians, twenty that are safe for people with wheat allergies, and ten for the low carb dieters. You’ll be prepared for every possible guest.
The ebook also includes over 50 full color photos, a linked table of contents for easy navigation, and a useful appendix.
Put on your fez and straighten your bow tie. You own a cookbook now. Cookbooks are cool.

Enjoying Season 5? Need a little liquid courage before you face The Authority? The Unauthorized True Blood Drinking Guide exists to answer the immortal question of WWED – What Would Erik Drink?
For that matter, what about Russell Edgington and Talbot? Sweet Eddie Fournier or crazy Franklin Mott? Bill, Lorena, or Pam?
These days, the obvious answer is blood. However, back when they were merely mortal humans, your favorite vampires were already heavy drinkers – of booze. Before modern water purification techniques came along, their poor, weak human bodies couldn’t have survived otherwise.
The Unauthorized True Blood Drinking Guide takes you on a heady tour of the drinking culture that would have influenced each vampire’s attitudes towards the dark, rich, intoxicating beverages that make life worth living. Starting with babyvamp Jessica Hambly and ending with the ancient Russell Edgington, you’ll not only learn what your favorite True Blood vampires would’ve drunk while they were still human, but also how to mix those drinks for yourself.
From the silly to the sublime to the seductive, these authentic period cocktail and mixed drink recipes will give you one more reason to love Sunday night.
