chef John Christenson's recipe for the vanilla milkshake from Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction does not come with coke, heroin or adrenaline (sorry), but it is a sublime version of a legal old school shake.

Turn the page for the recipe, read our interview with founder Romain Vetter, and check out the site for not a few other movie food recipes, like the Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle sliders, or the I Love You Man fish tacos, or the Black Swan vanilla cake with strawberry frosting. Frosting is as scary as you want it to be, I guess.

Pulp Fiction vanilla milkshake

From: chef John Christenson

Makes: 6

2 cups vanilla bean or French vanilla ice cream

2 cups whipping cream

1 cup whole milk

1 ¼ teaspoons Bourbon vanilla extract

6 tablespoons powdered sugar

1. For the whip cream workout start by adding chilled whipping cream into a large mixing bowl, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract. Whisk the mixture vigorously until the mixture forms a peak. Pulling the whisk up out of the cream will result in a peak, letting you know you are good to go. Wrap and chill in the fridge.

2. For the shake combine ice cream, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 4 tablespoons powdered sugar in a blender. Blend until smooth.

3. Pour as desired in to a glass of your liking, dollop with whipped cream, a cherry if you like and a mint leaf.
