Praise for The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook

“I think this is a wonderful book and a must-have for all mystery fans. It is also a must-have if you are looking for a staple cookbook in your kitchen that has a bit of everything, because it might just be the kicker for your introduction into the world of mystery!”
Padfoot’s Library

“Not only have a ton of my own favorite authors taken part, submitting family recipes or dishes connected to their famous lead characters – Alafair Burke offers up “Ellie Hatcher’s Rum-Soaked Nutella French Toast” and Harlan Coben shares “Myron’s Crabmeat Dip” – , there are a bunch of new-to-me authors who have now tempted me to try their dishes and books as well”

“Whether you’re planning a sinister dinner party or whipping up some comfort food perfect for a day of writing, you’ll find plenty to savor in this cunning collection.”
Wicked Local Abington

“Even a person with limited culinary skills like me can handle a pot of coffee, “Kinsey Millhone’s Famous Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich,” and Lisa Scottoline’s “A Tomato Sauce for All Seasons.” Many of the recipes are accompanied by mouth-watering color photos–why wasn’t I sent the actual dishes to review?!–making the book a handsome gift for crime-loving cooks.”
– Pop Culture Nerd

“Since food and dining have often been employed as plot devices in crime fiction, and few people know how to whip up sustaining yarns better that the numerous folk who make this genre so delicious, it wasn’t a far-fetched idea to ask a few of those writers to contribute their favorite recipes for publication.”
– The Rap Sheet

“Mystery readers will be enchanted with the latest idea from the Mystery Writers of America. They’ve rounded up over one hundred of the best mystery writers now working and asked each to contribute a recipe. The resulting collection was then edited and put together by Kate White, who is also a mystery writer. Food and mysteries go together like bacon and eggs. Think of all the poisoned dinners that are plot devices, the muffins and subs eaten on stakeouts, and the gourmet detectives such as Nero Wolfe that have entertained the reader. There is even a subgenre of mysteries, the culinary mysteries, which give the reader a mystery and recipes to match the action.”
– Booksie’s Blog

“With over 100 ‘wickedly good’ entries to savor, from breakfast selections to after-dinner cocktails, editor (and former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief) Kate White also includes colorful insight about how food and murder often go hand in hand. (Stomach contents can be critical in determining whether a victim’s last meal was more deadly than delicious, for example.)”

“THE MYSTERY WRITERS OF AMERICA COOKBOOK is a great gift for mystery and/or cookbook lovers. Highly recommended!”
– Booking Mama

“This cookbook is gorgeous. Even beyond the content, the design of it is beautiful. In the week I’ve had it, I’ve flipped through it at least a dozen times just to look at it. And not even the pictures of the food, though those look delicious…”
