Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have signed a cookbook deal with Clarkson Potter to write the official Portlandia Cookbook, which will have 50 recipes presented through the show’s various hyper-local-conscious and small-batch, handcrafted-food-obsessed characters. This likely means some freegan stew, artisanal popcorn, and pickled everything. Maybe there’ll be a few recipes for those with severe food allergies — Armisen himself has a bunch in real life, after all. Publishers Marketplace (subscription only) reports the book will be out this fall. [PM]
