True Blood wraps its fifth season on Sunday, but perhaps a forthcoming cookbook inspired by the show will tide you over until next summer. True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps will hit shelves Sept. 5 and feature 85 recipes, some from “unforgettable scenes.” Any True fan will know that Gran’s last pie best be there, along with Maxine Fortenberry’s tuna cheese casserole and Lafayette’s gumbo (bleach optional). Also, I’d like at least one recipe in tribute to Talbot — he loved to entertain.

Below, watch a trailer for the book in which Alan Ball talks about food and hunger being central to the show (and also about his mother’s penchant for combining Miracle Whip with fruit for dessert).

What recipes are you hoping are in the book, PopWatchers?
