Waiting on Wednesday (Aug 13)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

So..What am I waiting for?



Staffed and run by a band of misfit inmates, the kitchen at Litchfield is in many ways the center of the popular show Orange Is the New Black-a setting for camaraderie, drug smuggling, power struggles, and plot twists. And then there is the food. With 65 recipes, 12 sidebars that expand upon the fiction of the show, and 60 photographs from the show featuring favorite characters and memorable moments, Orange Is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook adds new dimensions to any fan’s obsession.

The recipes cover three square meals a day, plus snacks/sides, desserts, and drinks. They include Red’s Chicken Kiev, Miss Claudette’s Coconut Cake, and Prison Punch. The sidebars include Taystee’s sug­gested prison reading list, the recipe for Red’s Homemade Homeopathic Remedies, and a prison glossary.

Chock full of in-depth information about the show, including recipe headnotes by the characters, DIY projects that emulate notable props, and prison factoids that help bring the show to life, this cookbook will bring a little piece of Litchfield right into your very own kitchen.


Release date: October 14, 2014


Why am I waiting on this book?

Uhm.. Doesn’t this sound super amazing?? I LOVE the show and want nothing more than to continue to immerse myself in more Orange is the New Black! Can’t get enough!

What are you waiting on?!

    I haven’t watched the show (I know. I live under a rock), but if I did this would be something that interested me. Also, I’m always down for a new cookbook 🙂 Great pick!

    Well I don’t know that I would be too interested in the food because they don’t usually seem to be enjoying it on the show, but all the other features sound very cool! I love behind the scenes books like this 🙂
