There's a New 'Mean Girls' Cookbook and the Recipes Are So Fetch
It's almost October 3rd, and Aaron Samuels is ready.
If you’re someone who wears pink on Wednesdays and is still trying to make “fetch” happen we’ve got something special for you: There’s a new burn book in town.
Jonathan Bennett, the actor who portrayed the ever adorable Aaron Samuels in "Mean Girls," will soon be releasing “The Burn Cookbook: Real Recipes to Feed Your Inner Plastic.” And he’s doing so just in time for Mean Girls Day on October 3rd.
If you've somehow forgotten the significance of October 3rd in "Mean Girls," here's the scene that gave the date a new meaning:
The book’s publisher Hatchett explains, “THE BURN COOKBOOK is a hilarious, delicious must-have cookbook for chefs (and wannabes) everywhere." In the book, readers can dig into behind-the-scenes stories from the movie alongside delicious recipes inspired by the film.
“Like math, the language of food is the same in every country, and this cookbook is packed with amazing creations like Fetch-uccine Alfredo, You Go, Glenn (Hot) Cocoa, and Just Stab Caesar Salad,” Hatchett added. “Written with the help of rock star chef Nikki Martin, Jonathan also shares his favorite recipes from his own childhood, like his mom's famous stuffed shells, mandarin chicken salad, and other specialties that will round out any special event.”
Fans can pre-order the cookbook, out on October 2nd, now for $17 on Amazon. As an added bonus, the book even contains a foreword written by Lacey Chabert, aka Gretchen Wieners, who surely loves to chow down on one of the book’s recipes titled—what else—“Gretchen’s Wieners.”
The book may feel a bit random coming from an actor, but it turns out Bennett has the perfect resume for the job. He is, after all, the host of the Food Network’s "Cake Wars" and has to taste test hundreds of cakes a year. Not bad for a guy who could barely pass sophomore math.
