“Luke: What can I get you Kirk? Kirk: Patty melt and a coke. Luke: You want the melt cut into squares or stars today? Kirk: Half and half.”
Luke’s Diner. A Stars Hollow staple. Where else could you go to get bottomless mugs of coffee, hot fries and enough cynicism to last all day? (Great, now I want fries).
I got the chance to experiment with Luke’s famous Patty Melt. Just in time for the release of world-class chef, Kristi Carlson’s new cookbook, Eat Like a Gilmore, this sandwich is just one of many mouthwatering recipes…
“Sookie: A zucchini tush? Jackson: Just a temporary name. Sookie: You want me to serve my customers a genetically engineered vegetable that’s named after a butt?”
In October 2000, my world changed when the Gilmore Girls premiered. The witty banter, the lovable characters, and the quaint town of Stars Hollow became my home away from home every Thursday for 7 seasons. Any true Gilmore fancan tell you that food played an important role on the show. Lorelei and Rory were always eating. (Oh, to have their metabolisms).
Well today, the world celebrates!
Thanks to Kristi Carlson, a world-class chef and super fan, there is a cookbook dedicated to Luke’s Diner, Sookie’s EVERYTHING, Emily’s 4 course menus, Al’s Pancake World, and so many more. I had the great honor of being able to test 2 recipes. The first was Sookie’s Pineapple Cranberry Chutney.
Hello all my beautiful foodies and fashionistas! I will not be posting my usual blog today. I am working hard on something special for you all. Be sure to tune in on Tuesday for not one but two delicious blog posts! I can’t give you any details yet, but here is a teeny taste of what is coming…
In the meantime, if you haven’t had the chance, you can check out last week’s post all about living a cruelty free life.
Have a great weekend and remember, be sure to visit the blog on Tuesday.
I love award shows. I know the focus should be on the talent – acting, writing, producing, etc. But let’s be honest, we all tune in (at least initially) to see what people are wearing. 2016 most certainly didn’t disappoint.
