Book has pictures form the show and write ups from the characters accompanying the recipes. Great for fans of either the True Blood show or Sookie Stackhouse book series. Ive cooked (and enjoyed eating) a few items from the book and they were delicious. A great introduction to southern cooking, and with recipes of the food you see on the show (grans pecan pie, burgers from Merlotte's). There are quite a lot recipes for drinks also (from Merlotte's, Hair of the dog and Fangtasia – and yes a recipe for Tru Blood is included). A fun, tasty book that I will continue to use long after the tv series has finished. (Check out the ‘fang safe’ forks on the cover)!
