If, like Lorelai Gilmore, your life motto is "WWTBFCD" (what would the Barefoot Contessa do), then this is for you. A new Kickstarter campaign, headed by Gilmore Girls fan and experimental chef Kristi Carlson, aims to reach $20,000 in pledges by April 16 to fund a cookbook inspired by Stars Hollow, CT, and its eccentric residents. According to Carlson, who appears in character as Luke, Sookie, Lorelai, Rory, and Emily in her campaign video for the aptly named Eat Like a Gilmore, the collection of recipes will be divided into three sections.
- Recipes you'd find in a small-town diner like Luke's.
- Recipes that are worthy of "Friday night dinner" at the Gilmore house.
- Recipes that you'd find on the menu at an inn like The Independence Inn.
Boasting everything from Luke Danes's famous burgers to Sookie St. James's more elaborate culinary concoctions, the book is perfect for Gilmore fans who desire meals that are more challenging than Lorelai and Rory's signature Pop-Tarts and takeout Chinese from Al's Pancake World. If you're interested in supporting the cause (and trying some of the tasty recipes for yourself), donate to the Kickstarter — $30 guarantees your very own copy!
