I finished re-reading The Mapping of Love and Death by Jacqueline Winspear the other day and came across a word I didn't know - syllabub. I gathered that it referred to a dessert of some sort, but kept trying to imagine what it would look like and taste like. So, I searched and found this: (from BBC website)
Quirk Books. Talk about fate! A cookbook filled with recipes from the BEST mystery writers around - one of which is Winspear! Looks like syllabub is a dessert I'm meant to make in the near future - hmm, perhaps for Easter.
The recipes run the gamut from appetizers to drinks to dessert. There aren't as many photos of the food as I would like, but the ones that are included do make your mouth water. Plus, how do you not get a kick out of reading a tidbit from your favorite author writing about food!?! Here are some of the recipes found in the book: Lee Child's recipe for coffee, Harlan Coben's Crab Meat Dip, Scott Turrow's Innocent Frittata, and Sue Grafton's Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich. Talk about an interesting assortment of dishes. I just know that fans of these authors and fans of cookbooks will get a kick out of this book!
I would definitely recommend The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook to fans of mystery writers and fans of cookbooks - you all will just devour this book. I absolutely LOVED this unique mix of authors and their recipes all rolled into one. Make sure to get your hands on a copy of this KILLER new book - you will be so thrilled you did!
Thank you to Quirk Books for providing me with a copy of this AWESOME book!
