I love to read "cookbooks" and cooking magazines like CL. I also love to read a good mystery and find the current trend of culinary mysteries a great combination for me. So many more "cozy" mystery writers are incorporating recipes in their stories and many devote several pages to the recipes wonderfully and deliciously detailed in the mysteries. I wonder if anyone else finds this increasingly popular genre "a good fit" for someone who loves to cook and appreciates a good mystery.
I first started with Virginia Rich, discovered Diane Mott Davidson,
Nancy Pickard, Joanne Pence, Tamar Myers, Lou Jane Temple, and several others who have even printed separate cookbooks, the oldest being a Nero Wolfe cookbook from Rex Stout.
I have tried several of the recipes and most are keepers. Has anyone else enjoyed this combination of culinary mysteries? And what recipes have you tried and really enjoyed?
I am sure there are many of you out there because the number of authors and recipes keep increasing-so someone must be reading and buying these books. Let me know!
