Over the long weekend, Netflix rolled out the highly-anticipated 10th anniversary reboot-catchup mini-series to the 2000-2007 television phenomenon Gilmore Girls, which chronicles the lives and times of mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore—proprietor of the Dragonfly Inn in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, and a Yale-educated writer, respectively. Throughout the original series, both Lorelai and Rory were obsessed with food—especially small-format packaged and convenience foods like frozen pizzas, Pop Tarts, and Mallomars—and Luke, Lorelai's love interest, runs a diner in town, so there were always plenty of all-American classics, like burgers and mac and cheese, present on screen.
The latest incarnation of the show is no different—except this time, in addition to snack food staples (yes, Pop Tarts everywhere), the Gilmore Girls have upped the food ante, and there's plenty of name-dropping and famous chef cameos to look out for. Here, presented without (too many) spoilers, are all the food cameos and mentions in the Netflix reboot of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
