The Official Cookbook



WRITTEN BY Joanna Farrow

Food hasn’t traditionally played much of a part in Doctor Who. When the First Doctor offered Ian and Barbara bacon and eggs, it came in the form of ‘food blocks’, suggesting the TARDIS didn’t even have a kitchen. Despite this, Joanna Farrow’s Official Cookbook isn’t the first of its kind. In 1985 WH Allen published Gary Downie’s Doctor Who Cookbook, a collection of favourite recipes from people associated with the programme. (Domesticity must have been having a moment among the show’s merchandisers; at around the same time, the unimprovably named Joy Gammon produced the Doctor Who Pattern Book.) This is a very different beast, though – a collection of 40 inventive and witty recipes inspired by the show and particularly by its monsters. So Farrow offers up ‘Zygon Pie’, ‘Ood Head Bread’ and ‘Adipose Pavlova’. There’s also a take on fish fingers and custard, the ‘custard’ wisely replaced by a cheese sauce.
