The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook
Edited by Kate White
This is a fun read that happens to be a cookbook. A collection of mystery writers have contributed recipes from something simple to more complex, and each recipe has a blurb relating its relevance to one of the author's books. Even the recipes names have a creative twist to them. Included also are a few tidbits on Poe's take on a good meal and P.D. James' take on herbal toxicology as it pertains to plots of mystery novels. There are 171 pages of recipes plus metric conversions for volume and weights, and an index. 7 chapters covering breakfast, entrees, soups, appetizers, salads and sides, desserts, and cocktails. This cookbook would allow booklovers or even a small book club have a lot of fun cooking together.
