Praise For…

“As fans of The Walking Dead, especially the early seasons, this cookbook is a fantastic trip through the history of the show.”
— 2 Geeks Who Eat

“Along with walkie-talkies, local maps and a hand-crank radio, "The Walking Dead: The Official Cookbook and Survival Guide" is a savvy addition to any survival cache.”

— LA Times

“Brimming with pictures from the hit TV show, it’s filled with tips such as which knives are a must-have for the zombie apocalypse and how to pack your bug-out bag, along with recipes fit for a scrappy survivor on the go."
— Sun Journal

“This cookbook even tells you how to forage and gather what you need for survival, taking the reader through chapters worth of recipes and how to survive in the wilds.”
— TV Over Mind

“The Walking Dead Official Cookbook devotes recipe chapters to breakfast, dinner, “sweet treats,” beverages and food preservation. Reading them, you can imagine the author either binge-watching the show or plumbing the depths of online recaps for any depiction of meals, snacks, gardening or farming, no matter how tenuous, that she can hang a recipe on...The Walking Dead Official Cookbook will likely be more useful than all the other tie-in cookbooks on your shelf.”

“All of the photos and pages look like they are worn and weathered, literally like a shot out of The Walking Dead set.”
— Sweat Pants and Coffee
