No need to read to see if butter is a carb. It’s a burn book that will teach you how not to burn things. Food Network host Jonathan Bennett is putting out a new cookbook on a day that means a lot to his fans. Bennett is best known for playing Aaron Samuels in the movie “Mean Girls.” The movie has a cult following… and it’s chocked full of memorable quotes.
A Mean Girls Cookbook
So, of course, “The Burn Cookbook: An Unofficial Unauthorized Cookbook for Mean Girls Fans” would be available for October 3rd. If you’ve never seen the comedy, (Why? Go do it now!) “Mean Girls” hysterically follows Cady Heron, played by Lindsay Lohan, as she starts a new school and falls in with the popular girls at school. Cady makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George. A huge plot twist in the movie comes when Regina reveals the Burn Book, which is a scrapbook holding secrets from all the girls in the school.
Bennett took the premise of the Burn Book and created a cookbook.
According to the cookbook’s description on Amazon, The Burn Cookbook dishes out a tasty parody of Mean Girls, serving up behind-the-scenes stories from the movie alongside awesome recipes for treats that your favorite mean girls should be enjoying in Girl World.
He takes famous one-liners from the movie and incorporates them into the recipes. Some notable quotes can be found in his recipes called Fetch-uccine Alfredo, You Go, Glenn (Hot) Cocoa, and Just Stab Caesar Salad. Bennett also shares his favorite recipes from his own childhood, like his mom’s famous stuffed shells, mandarin chicken salad, and several other specialties. He got some legit culinary help from his Food Network co-worker, Nikki Martin, who is an actual chef. Be warned though, if you try all the recipes in the cookbook at once, you might only be able to fit into sweatpants.
“The Burn Cookbook: An Unofficial Unauthorized Cookbook for Mean Girls Fans” will set you back about $17. The book is available wherever books are sold, including Kindle. You can get an autographed bookplate from Aaron Samuels, himself by going here.
