Hilarious spoof cookbook to tie into hit series, BREAKING BAD.

Hilarious spoof cookbook to tie into hit series, BREAKING BAD.

You're hooked on BREAKING BAD. You've got high on the escapades of Walt and Jessie. Now it's come to an end and you're missing your latest fix. Well, we have just the drug for you: BAKING BAD.

98% pure but 100% edible and delicious, BAKING BAD is a spoof recipe book created in homage to the TV series that we STILL can't stop talking about. A cookbook for fans of the greatest cult show ever produced (and no gasmask is required).

From 'Ricin Crispie Treats' to Walt's patented 'Meth Muffins' (complete with blue sugar crystals), 'Apple & Banana Hank-cakes' to 'Chocolate Gustavo Fingers' and 'Heisen-batten-Burg Cake' (topped with a licorice hat), this book comes with so many in-jokes that you'll need a fake carwash just to process them.

So, get your protective gear on and your tool kit ready. Because, as Jessie would say, 'Let's Cook. B*tch'.

Baking Bad: The must-have recipe book for all Breaking Bad fans who want to cook up something special...

The only cookbook you need this Christmas is Baking Bad - unless you're a Florida mum maybe.
It's a recipe book by Breaking Bad fan Walter Wheat (probs not his real name) which shows you how to recreate the hit show's most iconic moments using just sponge, cookie dough and spun-sugar.

— Alison Lynch, Metro (online)
ction figures may be off the table for your favorite Breaking Bad fan this holiday season, but thankfully, something even better is hitting the market: a Breaking Bad cookbook, titled - what else? -Baking Bad. — Eliza Berman, time.com

When the characters in Breaking Bad mention cooking, you can be pretty sure they're talking about whipping up a batch of crystal meth, not cookies.

A new cookbook based on the TV drama, however, takes a rather more gentle approach to Walt and Jesse's recipes, by converting them into sugary treats.

'Baking Bad' features everything from "blue meth crush" (no phenyl-2-propanone involved) to "Ricin Krispie Treats".

As Walt would say: "Let's cook!"

— Telegraph (online)
Even whiter-than-white cookery judge Mary Berry would brand this lot "scrumptious". — Matilda Battersby, THE INDEPENDENT
'Breaking Bad' was pretty sweet, huh? Well now it's even sweeter, thanks to a recipe book that runs through the show season by season, devising a number of of awesome cakes, biscuits, sweets - and the odd savoury dish - to accompany key scenes. — TIME OUT

Dragula

Ma'am Stoker
Authors:
Ma'am Stoker

When Jonathan Harker visits Trans-ylvania to help Count Dragula purchase a London house, he makes some horrifying discoveries in his client's castle (including the wearing of espadrilles without irony) and the local area, where people insist on behaving bizarrely, festooning him with garlic and blethering on about a 'fierce queen', although perhaps something is getting lost in translation. They shout out to him: 'good luck, and don't get slurped up!'. It's about to get even weirder at the castle where there is a battle of wills going on between the mysterious Count and what he terms, the 'blood-sucking b*tches!' in the village, led by the infamous van High-Heelsing. But who will prevail on the runway? As each kween sashays towards the jugular, the reader is taken on a journey to the ultimate lip sync for your life finale.

House of the Rising Sun

James Lee Burke
Authors:
James Lee Burke

New York Times bestseller and 'one of the finest crime writer's America has ever produced' James Lee Burke returns with his latest masterpiece, the story of a father and son separated by war.From its opening scene in revolutionary Mexico to the Battle of the Marne in 1918, and on to the bordellos and saloons of San Antonio during the reign of the Hole in the Wall Gang, House of the Rising Sun is an epic tale of love, loss, betrayal, vengeance, and retribution that follows Texas Ranger Hackberry Holland on his journey to reunite with his estranged son, Ishmael, a captain in the United States Army.After a violent encounter that leaves four Mexican soldiers dead, Hackberry escapes the country in possession of a stolen artifact, earning the ire of a bloodthirsty Austrian arms dealer who then places Hack's son Ishmael squarely in the cross hairs of a plot to recapture his prize, believed to be the mythic cup of Christ.Along the way, we meet three extraordinary women: Ruby Dansen, the Danish immigrant who is Ishmael's mother and Hackberry's one true love; Beatrice DeMolay, a brothel madam descended from the crusader knight who brought the shroud of Turin back from the Holy Land; and Maggie Bassett, one-time lover of the Sundance Kid, whose wiles rival those of Lady Macbeth. In her own way, each woman will aid Hackberry in his quest to reconcile with Ishmael, to vanquish their enemies, and to return the Grail to its rightful place.Praise for one of the great American crime writers, James Lee Burke:'James Lee Burke is the heavyweight champ, a great American novelist whose work, taken individually or as a whole, is unsurpassed.'
