Win a Copy of Outlander Kitchen!

OK sassenachs, by now I'm sure you've heard of Outlander Kitchen, a fantastic website run by Theresa Carle-Sanders. Theresa is a chef and food writer who has been creating delicacies mentioned by Diana Gabaldon in the Outlander series for years. And if that wasn't cool enough, she has now put all of them in print, for us to create and enjoy! Outlander Kitchen: The official Outlander Companion Cookbook is the latest creation in the Outlander Kitchen world, and will be available on June 14th!



Theresa has been kind enough to pass along a copy of her cookbook for one of you lucky Outlander fans to win!

To enter, just post your name, and the name of your favorite dish/food from the Outlander series into the comments  below (your own recipe optional but not necessary!) Winner will be chosen at random on Monday, June 20th at 12PM Eastern.

And just to get your juices flowing, here is Theresa's recipe for Apple Fritters! Enjoy!

6/22 UPDATE: I'm so sorry, y'all. Tracey and I had a family emergency this week so I wasn't able to pick a winner on Monday. Our mom, affectionately known to our Outlander buds as PattzR, fell and broke her elbow on Friday night. Last night she underwent a full elbow replacement, and it's been a very rough time for our family. I will be picking the winner tomorrow morning and will announce shortly thereafter. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your patience and understanding!!!!!

UPDATE: A winner was announced on 6/23 and this contest is now closed. Thanks for your interest!

Kristen Phillips - I love Claire's Molasses cookies from ABOSAA. It's one of the few things Claire actually makes in the books and that whole scene that follows is so crazy! :)

Baja fish tacos from DOA.

Looking forward to trying the apple fritters! Thanks ladies!

In Season One they she sits with the English for "Venison" my absolute favorite meat in the world. I could taste it through the TV,but then Black Jack shows up hits her so hard I don't know how you could keep it down plus having just taken a man's limb off down stairs!!! WHEW!!! What an episode .

Bea said...

P.S. Love the Apple Fritters Recipe!!!!!!!!! That a REAL keeper!!

Kare said...

I love the scene, that we missed, when they roast the potatoes and they talk about all of the ways you can fix them!

Elizabeth said...

Claire's molasses cookies! Would love to have this book. Also when Bree eats some type of fresh meat pie in Scotland when she met lizzy. There is so many good things. Love you videos and blog posts btw!

Unknown said...

Claire's Spoon Bread was a surprising favorite. (And the Cherry Bounce :-) )

lesley said...

Hi Ladies,
Brianna's bridies are one of my favourites,I love pies. Also just last night I read the part in ABoSaA where young Ian is taking Brianna to see the mammoth and they've just eaten baked yams drizzled in fresh honey,Yum.

The whole barbecued pig from the gathering where Bree & Roger got married (Fiery Cross I think?)

Porridge, of course!

Linda said...

Definitely the molasses cookies! Timeless and delicious!

Unknown said...

I would have to pick Birdies.
I know my husband would love them.
Thank you for the chance to win the Cookbook!
Really Appreciate it.

The bannocks. You can do so much with them--personally, they are great just by themselves.

Unknown said...

Brenda Bates and I love the molasses cookies.

Charlene said...

Scones and I really want to try Cherry Bounce!

Brandy Bruce said...

Scrambled eggs in butter from DOA!

Unknown said...

I love the Hot Chocolate with La Dame Blanche from Dragonfly in Amber. Love chocolate and Theresa's recipe is easy peasy!

Holly said...

I have only read the first book and am now in the second so for me it would be the different ways to fix potatoes in Dragonfly in Amber. We have so many different foods to eat that I never thought of not having certain things. This series is fabulous and I love what I am learning.

Missy Drake said...

My name is Missy and I love making Fiona's cinnamon scones, so yummy. This would be a perfect birthday present (June 12th) from the universe if I won haha

Cheryl said...

Another vote for buttered eggs mentioned by Claire in DOA and Lord John in "The Scottish Prisoner". The ultimate comfort food

Unknown said...

I have made "Murtagh's Gift" on numerous occasions, and everyone loves them.

Reds said...

Why the Drunken Mock-Turtle Soup from Voyager of course!

I had never heard of CHERRY BOUNCE until Diana's books. The description of it as being like cherry cough medicine was perplexing . Theresa's recipe book helped me recreate it and I've been "bouncing around the kitchen" ever since. It's my go to Christmas gift for fellow Outlander obsessives.

Dorianne said...

Dorianne Paul and my favorite Outlander food is parritch! My breakfast almost every morning!

Valerie Sever said...

Valerie Sever and it has to be Cherry Bounce!

Elizabeth said...

Elizabeth Webb and my favorite are the oatmeal scones and clotted cream!

Alice Dusenberry, Mrs Bug's Buttermilk Drop Biscuits, from The Fiery Cross.

The roast beef eaten at the wedding feast :)

Teriska said...

Terri Topencik- I first thought of Brianna's Bridie meat pies when reading your post. Reading the other posts is like a walk down memory lane. So many memorable foods and scenes. I have made some of Therese's recipes for my viewing parties. You've made me hungry now thinking of all this great food! Thanks ladies for the chance to win this book!

Julie H. Colum's shortbread. My husband's grandparents emigrated from Firth, Scotland, and passed down the family's shortbread recipe to their daughter, who passed it along to me. Pretty much the same recipe as Colum's, except our recipe calls for powdered sugar, not granulated. Verra yummy, as my hips can attest!

Susie said...

Susie here and to be honest, I have not tried any of the recipes yet, but I will make the molasses cookies first.

Deeturtle3 said...

Denise. I haven't tried it yet, but I am going to make Crowdie

Kathleen said...

Kathleen Hoppes. I'd have to say haggis. Was it in Echo In The Bone? I'm not sure I could ever make it, though!

Anonymous said...

I love venison though I haven't had it for years and the apple fritters recipe is def mouth watering. There are other foods and drinks that sounded good as well. Susan Neufeld

Unknown said...

You mean I have to choose?! :-) I think the molasses cookies would be delightful with a cup of tea.

Unknown said...

I absolutely LOVE "Fiona's Ginger Nut Biscuits"... When she brings them to Roger, Brianna, and Claire in "Voyager", while they are researching Jamie's history, I just got such a warm feeling... I could totally smell them and the books, and the leather chairs they must have been sitting in. To imagine such a warm atmosphere, and three people who share a common bond, doing something together... I instantly had to go to my kitchen and try to bring the scene to life in my own home ☺️

Unknown said...

"Them" meaning the biscuits 😂

tphstables said...

:) Now there's a difficult choice! But - as I 'love' nuts it therefore must be 'Hazelnut Torte with Brandy-Brown Butter Glaze' inspired by Claires 'crude hickory nut flour cake' at the Ridge in 'Drums of Autumn'. It's simple and delicious!

Belinda F. said...

I've made LJ's steak and mushroom pie from The Private Matter. Fabulous!

Blissful said...

I love the molasses cookies. Just hearing the word molassess reminds me of the honeypot scene. They used real honey in the filming. Glad they did not use real molasses. Oh My, that would be worse than honey for someone to clean up.

Susan B said...

Scones and clotted cream! My favorite snack with a pot of tea.

Susan McDonald said...

I copied off Facebook the recipe for Bannocks that the Frasers ate for breakfast.

Molly said...

Molly Spradley....Cherry Bounce. I've made it so many times and with different fruits. It is a go-to gift every Christmas for family members.

tabbylewis said...

Tabby Lewis and my favorite recipe would be Bangers and Mash from Dragonfly in Amber.

Unknown said...

Terra Merrill and I've been fascinated by Jamie Fraser's parritch for years...I get my Golden Spurtle oats sent in from Scotland! Mmmmmm

Unknown said...

Hi ladies!

Thanks for a great chat this week, looking forward to next week!

I love porridge so that's a favourite and most definitely Bannocks!
Thanks Louise Fennick

Anonymous said...

Samantha Faulds--I would kill for one of Mrs. Graham's scones (and for her to read my tea leaves)!

Unknown said...

Bannocks. There's so much talk about them and I've never had one! :)

Heather S said...

So many interesting recipes! Love me some scones!

Madalene Sullivan said...

Mmmmm....molasses cookies for sure.

Unknown said...

Hmmmm . . . Colum's Relish for those first flirty moments. Gypsy Stew for Murtagh and Claire from the book.

Peigi said...

Is Rennish a dish??? (probably not !)

Hi! Thanks for the fantastic opportunity! I haven't read the books yet but I love the food they show in the tv series! My favourite would have to be Jamie's recommendation to the King of France, parritch!

Crystal LeMasters said...

There are too many good recipes to pick just one! Love the blueberry birdies, scotch eggs, DG's enchiladas and list goes on. Would be sooooo awesome to win this!

Kathie Leno said...

Shepherd's Pie is my favorite! My mother made it with left overs and a delicious flakey biscuit crust. Mmmmm!

Unknown said...

I do not know if it is in the cook book but for some reason Jenny's rabbit pie always intrigued me. The one she made for just her and Jaime during the years he was living in the cave, and he came down to find only her in the house. They didn't have all the ingredients.... I would love to make that one.

Unknown said...

Cherry Bounce from the books, but I love DG's enchiladas. They are a regular at my house.

Peggi S said...

Claire's Potato Fritters are made on a regular basis in my house! Everybody loves them! DG's enchiladas and her recipe for green chili are really great too!

I like the root soup as it is as easy as 1 2 3. Kind of like Stone Soup. Keeps those calories down for my 20th century jaunts;through the stones to the 1960's where thin is in!
