Share your guilty pleasures this season with the help of small screen–inspired recipe books debuting this month.
While the dropping temperatures might invite you to hole up and binge-watch your favorite series in solitude, share your guilty pleasures this season with the help of cookbooks inspired by different television series. In fact, we found four that are debuting this month alone. Check them out below, plus the stylish item we paired them with a la our monthly book club.
1. Orange is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook ($25, out October 21 from Abrams)
If visiting Litchfield Correctional Facility for lunch doesn't sound like your cup of tea, rest assured the recipes inspired by the hit Netflix series offer more than prison gruel. In fact, most are meals from the characters' lives before they landed behind
bars, along with some all-natural remedies (and vocabulary) picked up while serving time. As you're channeling your inner Red or Gloria in the kitchen, stay cozy in a uniform-like PJ set ($120)—obviously in orange.
2. In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites by Kris Jenner ($26, out October 21, from Karen Hunter Books)
We don't usually see the Kardashian clan cooking on their reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians (normally they're dining out, getting takeout salads in plastic bowls, making the occasional In-n-Out run or ordering catering). Still, Kris Jenner is ready to share even more of her family's secrets via her new cookbook. In keeping with the leading ladies' infamous initial, we scouted out a chic wine topper ($34) we're sure Mama K would love to add to her impressive kitchen.
3. The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook like a Local by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein ($25, out October 28 from Clarkson Potter)
Even if a trip to Portland isn't in the cards anytime soon, the stars of Portlandia are bringing the best of their beloved town to you. While your lifestyle might not be as active as the rest of the population, we found some comfortable kicks ($114) for all the hours you'd spend waiting in line for Sunday brunch on your visit—naturally, in the local college colors.
4. A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey: Seasonal Celebrations, Traditions, and Recipes by Jessica Fellowes ($30, out October 28 from St. Martin's Press)
We're thrilled to be in the midst of a new season of Downton Abbey, but even after the finale, we can stay in the spirit of refinement with the new book boasting month-by-month recipes, along with some insider information about the characters. While you embellish your bellies with English tastings from the period, decorate your attire with a bejeweled vintage-inspired headband ($32).
