Review: The Mystery Writer's Cookbook

The Mystery Writer's Cookbook

Publisher: Quirk Books
Pages: 176
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  The Mystery Writers of America have joined forces to deliver this superb collection of more than 100 wickedly good recipes. From Mary Higgins Clark’s Game Night Chili and Harlan Coben’s Crab Meat Dip to Scott Turow’s Innocent Frittata and Kathy Reich’s Shrimp Scampi, this cookbook offers one tasty treat after another. Complete with a glamorous art-deco design and intriguing sidebars on the surprising—and sometimes deadly—links between food and foul play, this is the ultimate cookbook for crime aficionados.

Kritters Thoughts:  What a great collection!  I already know that I love to READ cookbooks and I am a huge fan of the mystery genre, so this was right up my alley.  What I loved even more was reading the blurp ahead of each recipe as to where the recipe came from - whether it was from a book they have written or just from their lives, it was great!

I picked out a few recipes to try and here they are:
Whole Wheat Wild Blueberry Lemon Pecan Muffins
Charlaine's Very Unsophisticated Supper Dip
Rigatoni a la Bolognese
Worth-the-Effort Turkey Tetrazzini
Cheddar-Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce with Broccoli
A Tomato Sauce for All Seasons
Holiday Grogg

I absolutely loved the format of this book and would love to see more!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (or another collection)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Quirk Books.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
