Summary True Blood is the blockbuster paranormal drama, created by Alan Ball, set in Louisiana's bayou country, in the fictional town of Bon Temps. From its first season, True Blood has been a runaway success internationally; a massive 1.6 million people switched on for the show's Channel 4 premier and now, in its 4th season, averages around 200,000 viewers in the UK alone. The series has 275,000 followers on Twitter and 8.4 million fans on Facebook. The cooking of eastern Louisiana lends authenticity to many scenes in True Blood. This book celebrates the Bayou country cooking served up at Merlotte's and in the home kitchens of the show's characters, rounded out with drinks from Fangtasia and with a few maenad feasts. The book includes 82 recipes true to the cooking of the region and, whenever possible, relevant to the food and drinks seen in the episodes. All recipes included are introduced by head notes (written in the voice of the cast character to whom the recipe is attributed) and gathered into three chapters, each introduced by a chapter intro (written in the different characters' voice). The book opens with a main introduction (in Sookie's voice) and approximately 25 sidebars run throughout, featuring 'recipes' and relevant quotes (such as baby vamp Jessica's musings about not cooking).
