Outlander Kitchen: Let's Fact-Check, Shall We?

This is the Outlander Kitchen, written by Theresa Carle-Sanders.

It is based on the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon.

It is not a Scottish cookbook.

It is not based on the Outlander television series on Starz.

It is not a research book about Scotland.

It *is* a terribly yummy read, with lots of recipes and references to the wonderfully diverse dishes and situations mentioned in the Outlander series.

If you are a fan of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon (or if you just want some fabulous new dishes to add to your kitchen lineup), I encourage you to buy it.


  1. Well said! Obviously anyone who hasn't read the books won't appreciate the references that some of the references are based on. Not to mention the fact that the book is more than just Scotland as a location. You have Jamie who is Scottish, Claire who is British and then Brianna who is an American. There is a whole of array of situations and influences that the book takes advantage of. It's wonderful especially for true fans of the series.

  2. I just read through the whole book. And bookmarked several. Tonight I make an outlander meal!


  3. I came up with this idea a while ago, but someone beat me to the publisher! :) Does it include a recipe for bannocks?

    1. Yes! You have to get it - it's got so many neat recipes and Outlander passages! PS - I have a bannocks recipe on the site somewhere...I found one online and tweaked it a bit and they are TASTY. :)

  4. Well of course I bought it -- it says Outlander on the cover, doesn't it? ;)

    Actually I'm rewatching the entire 29 1/2 hours of the series with my MIL and BFF every Friday and either this week or next our luncheon menu will include *something( from this book. Just haven't figured out what yet.
