It’s not a regular cookbook. It’s a cool cookbook.

Jonathan Bennett, A.K.A. the guy who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls, just came out with a cookbook inspired by the legendary film: The Burn Cookbook: Real Recipes to Feed Your Inner Plastic. Samuels—I mean Bennett—released his book on October 2, the eve of the most important day in Mean Girls history.

If you’re somehow unaware of the date’s significance, October 3 was the day Samuels turned to  Cady Heron in math class and asked what day it was. I dare you to name a more culturally significant moment.

“Like math, the language of food is the same in every country, and this cookbook is packed with amazing creations like Fetch-uccine Alfredo, You Go, Glenn (Hot) Cocoa, and Just Stab Caesar Salad,” the book’s description reads.

No word yet on if there’s a recipe for “Gretchen Weiners.” That unforgivable oversight aside, this book sounds seriously grool.

Bennett includes exclusive behind-the-scenes stories alongside recipes inspired by our favorite high school clique. Plus, Ms. Weiners herself, Lacey Chabert, wrote the foreword.

The Burn Cookbook was co-written by The Food Network Star finalist Nikki Martin, so we know these recipes are the real deal. Though, Bennett isn’t exactly a stranger to the food world—he currently hosts the Food Network’s hit show Cake Wars.

While this is a deeply fun cookbook, Bennett was inspired by a life-altering loss.

"What really inspired [the book] was my mom was a chef and I grew up around cooking my whole life. I was always in the kitchen with her. I really immersed myself into this cooking space and really have fallen in love with it," Bennett told TODAY. "My mom passed away and she had all these recipes that were amazing ... I wanted to make sure those recipes didn't just disappear. I wanted to make sure that they lived on forever."
