Recipe for Murder

Recipe for Murder: Frightfully Good Food Inspired by Fiction
by Esterelle Payany [641.5 Pay]

Estérelle Payany shares recipes inspired by thirty-two fictional scoundrels. Villains range from fairy tale ogres such as the Big Bad Wolf to Dracula to Hannibal Lecter. Each chapter begins with an excerpt from the original story and ends with a recipe suggested by that segment. Some of the recipe selections are obvious. Such as The Big Bad Wolf's choice of pigs in the blanket but Hannibal Lecter does not choose to make liver with fava beans. He opts for a different variety meat. This is entertaining book to read.
