Since the resurgence of “Doctor Who” in 2005, there have been many food related jokes and plots. In “The Girl in the Fireplace” The Doctor brought a banana to a party and The Eleventh Doctor began his journey trying to figure out what food was not “rubbish”. In the new cookbook“Dining With The Doctor: The Unauthorized Whovian Cookbook” author Chris-Rachael Oseland takes fans through every episode of modern “Doctor Who” not through in-depth analysis, but instead through delicious recipes inspired by each episode.

Many dishes are included in the cookbook that previously seemed near impossible to make without a culinary degree. Inspired by “Love and Monsters” the recipe for ‘L.I.N.D.A’s Tardis Wellington’ is one of the simplest wellington recipes available. Any Whovian can now cook wellington to impress their friends.

From cocktails to deserts, “Dining With The Doctor” is full of delicious recipes that can be made any day of the week. In addition, this cookbook is an amazing resource to cater a “Doctor Who” party. Many fun drinks are included such as ‘Pete Tyler’s Health Tonic’, ‘New Earth Apple Grass Cocktail’, ‘Cybus Brain Cleansing Cocktail’ and ‘The Fizzy Waters of Mars Cocktail’.

One of the most popular sections of the cookbook is one dedicated to Fish Fingers and Custard. From custard recipes to faux fish fingers made from pound cake or brownies, this fun chapter is sure to make a believer out of anyone. Even if one is not a great cook, the simplicity of the recipes will make anyone look like an expert chef.

This amazing cookbook can be purchased from Amazon and will soon be available from Think Geek.
