FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Written by Lauren Wilson Photography by Yunhee Kim
Season after season, The Walking Dead has been enthralling fans, drawing millions of viewers, and consistently breaking viewership records. Approaching its eighth season, the pop culture phenomenon has been the number one show on cable for five consecutive years and is the most-watched series in cable television history.
From people foraging to fuel up for survival to buying allegiance with cookies, there’s no doubt that food plays an integral role in the series. With the dying need for these recipes, Insight Editions is pleased to announce the publication of The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide ($29.99; October 10, 2017), offering unique recipes and survival tips inspired by AMC’s hit series.
The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide details the skills and recipes anyone would need to survive (while trying to avoid being eaten!) during an unexpected walker apocalypse. The cookbook features more than sixty mouthwatering recipes for breakfast, dinner, drinks, and even dessert, including iconic meals inspired by those featured on the show, such as Carl’s Chocolate Pudding, Carol Peletier’s Cookies, and Daryl Dixon’s Deer Stew.
The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide also contains vital information on foraging, hunting wild game, and cooking outdoors to help make the transition into any emergency scenario slightly less terrifying.
