Remember the famous cheesecake from the Golden Girls? Soon you'll be able to make one just like it
There was probably nothing that Sophia, Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose could not solve while sharing a slice of cheesecake. Now you can too once their cookbook hits the market.
The 'Golden Girls' are getting their cookbook! If you have watched the show you will recall that if there was one thing that stayed constant throughout the series was the four Miami women and their love for dessert. One could say that there was probably nothing that Sophia, Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose could not solve while sharing a slice of cheesecake. Without any doubt, it sure did look delicious and luckily, we now have a chance to recreate the same right in our own kitchens. Babble, a Disney publication, has announced that a collection of recipes based on the ’80s sitcom would be published by Kingswell. While there are not many details out on all recipes the book will contain, we know that anything from the '80s hit sitcom is going to make us fall in love.
Hopefully, we will also get recipes for Sophia's greatest Italian dishes along with that sauce which is always spotted bubbling away on the stove and let's not forget the famous, Double Fudge Chocolate Cheesecake. Be it night or day or trouble knocking at the doorstep, the double fudge chocolate cheesecake just put people at ease and was everything that one needed to look at the bright side of things in life. As reported by People, this is not the first time that the show was entering into the culinary world.
In February 2017, a Golden Girls-themed cafe called Rue La Rue opened in N.Y.C.’s Washington Heights neighborhood. The cafe drew a lot of crowd offering a small consolation for die-hard fans of the 'Golden Girls'. The eatery served wraps, salads, wine, and cake in honor of Betty White (the only one of the women still living), and their décor featured glimpses from the show.
To make the fans feel at home, there were photos of the cast and the icing on the cake were the were episodes from the show playing in the background. The show first aired on September 14, 1985, and went on for a total of seven seasons. The show revolved around Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, as four women who shared a home in Miami, Florida.
The show became an instant hit for its humor and drama. It won several awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series twice. It also won three Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Each of the four stars also received an Emmy Award, making it one of only three sitcoms in the award's history to achieve this. The show became one of the top 10 highest rated programs for six out of its seven seasons.
The show came to an end on September 14, 1985, after Beatrice Arthur decided to leave the show. The final episode was an hour long which showed where the life of the cast members was headed. The series finale was watched by 27.2 million viewers. It also gave rise to a spin-off series, called 'The Golden Palace'.
