A Taste of Murder by Jo Grossman and Robert Weibezahl
I pulled this one out recently and feel it deserves a review, even though it's from my personal collection. It's a fun look at recipes that popular mystery authors share from their kitchens. What's inside? Here are the different sections and a sampling of recipes.
Maureen Tan's Armadillo Eggs
Choose Your Poison:
Rick Riordan's Tres Navarre's South Texas Margarita
The Pot Thickens:
Connie Shelton's Green Chile Stew
Dressed to Kill:
William Murran's Insalata Caprese
Gillian Roberts' Crusty Fat-Free Bread (One of my favorites!)
Quick and Painless:
Sue Graton's The Kinsey Millhone Famous Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich
Bill Moody's Piano Man Pasta with Shrimp and Asparagus
Richard North Patterson's Sea Bass in Orange Sauce
Carolyn G. Hart's Sarah's Easy Mexican Chicken Casserole
Sherlock Holmes Public House & Restaurant's Victoria Regina Chicken Pie
No Place to Meat:
Ellen Hart's The Lyme House Shepherd's Pie
Charlaine Harris's Best Fried Green Tomatoes
Revenge is Sweet:
Susan Wittig Albert's Lavender and Old Malice Cookies
That's just a small selection of the recipes within this book. Each author gets a few paragraphs detailing what they write about and who their characters are. You'll know many of them, but you might find yourself building a substantial list of books you want to read. That's what makes it so great!
In my household, we have one family member who cannot have dairy due to sensitivities to milk proteins. A Taste of Murder has great selections for everyone, vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, or omnivore. Plus, it's easy to adapt many of them to fit your needs. I've made Brown's Hotel Afternoon Tea Scones with spread made from almond oil and almond milk and added dried cranberries instead of the raisins, and they became a household favorite.
It's getting harder to find this cookbook, but there are used copies available and it's well worth it!
