What you can find in the official Back to the Future cookbook

For those who are (somehow) unfamiliar with the legendary three-part tale, the premise is an essential to know: Marty McFly, an adventurous, witty, agile and fashionable teenager, travels through time to prevent conflict, save lives and fight enemies. His missions often misfire, resulting in comedic and dramatic results. The main setting of “Back to the Future” is a fictional sleepy town called Hill Valley, hence the cookbook’s subtitle. Throughout the series, many changes take place in the metropolis, from its people to its buildings, from its roads to its culture. Food trends are continually evolving, and “Back to the Future: The Official Hill Valley Cookbook” pays homage to popular recipes over the decades.

The colorful cookbook, written by nominated author James Beard and famed foodie Allison Robicelli, can be purchased from the Back to the future official online store, Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, and other sellers. It consists of more than 65 recipes spread over five chapters, all of which represent different historical periods, namely 1885, 1955, 1985 and 2015. The fare includes comfort foods like chicken pot pie, mini pizzas, meatloaf and fried chicken. There’s even a quiche Lorraine recipe (get it?). Readers will also find sweets such as hoverboard-shaped frosted cookies, puddings, and tiramisu. Drinks include “Emmett Brown’s Sarsaparilla and Pear Mocktail” and “Enchantment Under the Sea Punch” (by Back to the store of the future). Great Scott!
