The title features 65 recipes, including Red’s Chicken Kiev, Miss Claudette’s Coconut Cake, and Prison Punch.

Netflix's Orange Is the New Black is known as the setting of prisoner camaraderie, drug smuggling and intricate plot twists.

And then there is the food.

The prison series has dipped its toe into the world of licensing with a recipe book inspired by the show, titled Orange Is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook.

The book boasts 65 recipes, including Red’s Chicken Kiev, Miss Claudette’s Coconut Cake and Prison Punch, alongside 12 sidebars and 60 photographs designed to expand on the fiction of the show.

The sidebars include Taystee’s suggested prison reading list, the recipe for Red’s Homemade Homeopathic Remedies and a prison glossary.

‘Chock full of in-depth information about the show, including recipe headnotes by the characters, DIY projects that emulate notable props and prison factoids that help bring the show to life, this cookbook will bring a little piece of Litchfield right to your very own kitchen,’ read a product description.

Orange Is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook will be available in the UK from October 1st, this year.
