The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook: Wickedly Good Meals and Desserts to Die For features breakfasts, appetizers, desserts, cocktails and more from your favorite mystery authors and their characters.
The book also offers multiple sidebars that link the food to the fiction—like poisons people used to plant in their gardens and an explainer about how “red herring” went from the plate to the page.
Things To Watch Out For
None of the recipes in this book are even slightly dangerous for human beings. You can enjoy them to their fullest extent without wondering if you’ve made your will out to the right people.
But if you’ve ever wondered what might be used to kill a person? These 10 poisons have been popular with evildoers over the centuries.
Not so tasty, right?
About The Book
Model Man on Amazon is a fan:
“I checked this one out at the library before I purchased it so I knew what I was getting. I’ve made a couple of recipes and was happy with the results. The anecdotes about the recipes are very entertaining, but the recipes tend to need more detailed information. As long as you aren’t expecting the world’s greatest cookbook, have some cooking experience and enjoy a good mystery you will probably like this book.”
I liked it very much too. This is a lot of fun and you can play games with your family getting them to guess the writer or the character associated with the meal. Fun at meal times is the best!
