Some things only get better with age, and The Golden Girls is proof that some TV characters never go out of style. The show centers on four, older single women—Dorothy, Blanche, Sophia, and Rose—living their best lives together in Florida. Though the premise may be simple, the humor has proven to be timeless, and The Golden Girls continues to find younger audiences, thanks to its prevalence in syndication and on streaming platforms. And if you ever wanted to eat like the witty retirees, now there's a cookbook that lets you fulfill those dreams.

The Golden Girls Cookbook features over 90 recipes and is divided into sections inspired by each character. There are no-nonsense and efficient recipes in Dorothy's section; Italian-inspired recipes in Sophia's; Southern home-cooking for Blanche; and Scandinavian and farm-style for sweet Rose. There are also recipes that are references straight from the show like Vanskapkaka, For Whom the Stuffed Bell Pepper Tolls, and, of course, cheesecake.

The book's recipes were concocted by renowned chef Christopher Styler with photography by New York Times food photographer Andrew Scrivani. In addition to wonderful recipes, the book is filled with great and fun quotes, photos, and references to the show's most popular moments.
