Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook is on sale!


I am thrilled to announce the release of my new cookbook, Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook, inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s NY Times best-selling series Outlander. Published by Delacorte Books of the Random House Group, Outlander Kitchen is available online and in bookstores across North America.

Order online:

pimento cheeseWhen they open the cover, readers and cooks embark on a culinary journey through 100+ authentic historical receipts, modern interpretations and creative, character-inspired dishes from Outlander through A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Tested, doable and delicious recipes sit nestled between pages rich with Outlander excerpts and atmospheric, mouth-watering photos, making Outlander Kitchen as at home on the kitchen counter as it is balanced on a fan’s lap in a quiet, candlelit corner as they flip through page after page to bring Outlander to life here in the 21st Century.

From Claire’s first lonely, bewildering bowl of Mrs. Fitzgibbon’s Porridge in Castle Leoch, through a Roast Beef for a Wedding Feast after her hasty marriage to Highlander James Fraser, to a comforting batch of Mrs. Bug’s Buttermilk Drop Biscuits at their home on Fraser’s Ridge in North Carolina over 25 years and two trips through the stones later, Outlander Kitchen gives fans of the books and television series a bird’s eye view of food through the centuries, while updating recipes for today’s modern kitchens, cramped schedules and progressive palates.


50+ brand new recipes:

  • Drunken Mock-Turtle Soup
  • Peppery Oyster Stew
  • Lord John’s Upside Down Plum Cake
  • Banoffee Trifle at River Run
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs with the Randalls

Dozens of blog favourites:

  • Roast Beef for a Wedding Feast
  • Brianna’s Bridies
  • Scotch Eggs
  • Mrs. Bug’s Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
  • Atholl Brose for the Bonnie Prince

    Hi Teresa,

    Congratulations!!! We have been waiting excitedly for your announcement the book is ready, so when I saw your email I immediately jumped on to Amazon and ordered my book, which I will have by Friday. I am sorry Deb Black pre-ordered and was told she had to wait until the 20th. She is right, that is pretty strange. She should try contacting Amazon to see if she can get hers Friday also. I have had great success with their customer service in the past.

    mine was delivered yesterday and i am loving it. Not only the recipes but all the parts from the books are a great addition. A must have for all Outlander fans. Did i tell you my Scottish Golf tournament with Scottish food went great. After I read most of the cookbook i will get to do some great cooking. . Amazon was fast with the delivery as i did pre order it. Today the price went up.

    I received my copy today. I already love it! I’m so excited to try some of the recipes, I’m planning to use them in a few upcoming dinner parties (if I can wrestle it away from my roommate long enough! Lol!) . This looks to become my favorite cookbook.

    Dear Theresa,
    The cookbook is lovely! I was thrilled to have it waiting for me when I returned from a trip this morning, and opened it before unpacking the car. It is a wonderful array of recipes, photographs, tips and cooking wisdom, and shows great care and thought in its arrangement and presentation. It’s all the more special for your autograph and Diana’s. I’m making my grocery list and will enjoy something scrumptious from it for supper.
    Thank you,
