Chronicle Books has joined forces with HBO to launch The True Blood Cookbook.

Due to arrive in the autumn, the book will include photos from the show's four seasons, side stories and authentic southern recipes for the local fare from the world of Bon Temps.

"Millions of fans agree there's nothing more exciting on television than True Blood, and much of that fun comes from the witty and delicious symbolism food and drink brings to so many scenes," said Christine Carswell, Chronicle Books' publisher. "The True Blood Cookbook will capture the flavours of the True Blood universe with plenty of authentic dishes, both on the plate and behind the scenes."

Alan Ball, the series creator, added: "This book will be substantial, with recipes that capture the unique ambience, dark humour and complexity of characters that make up the magical and offbeat world of True Blood. In other words, it will be worthy of 'Trubies' everywhere."
