When he isn’t toiling away as Assistant to the Regional Manager at Dunder Mifflin, Dwight Schrute can be found working on his family’s beet farm, Schrute Farms Bed & Breakfast, with his cousin, Mose. If you're so inclined to recreate the family's beet-centric diet in your own home, there's a new cookbook that will show you the ropes.

Now available for pre-order, Beet This is the perfect treat for any mega fans of The Office. In this guide, you'll learn how to make everything from simple roasted beets to more complicated fare like spicy fried rattlesnake with pickled beets and beet biscuits with rabbit gravy. You'll even get instructions for distilling your very own beet vodka.

With this guide to cooking, you could host a whole dinner party complete with drinks, appetizers, mains, and desserts featuring those earthy root vegetables (you'll also find a few beet-free dishes like a recipe for pork knuckle). Impress your friends with Schrute family-approved dishes that utilize what they call “the most superior plant-based food discovered by man.”

This unofficial cookbook was written by authors Tyanni Niles, Keith Riegert, and Sam Kaplan, and you can pre-order your own copy right now on Amazon. The book will officially be released on July 27.
