Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
How better to unwind from prodding the dead all day than to feed living, breathing friends and relatives? Bestselling mystery author Patricia Cornwell's Food to Die For: Secrets from Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen offers favorite recipes from the intrepid medical examiner (Cornwell's series heroine), Scarpetta's colleagues Marino and Rose, niece Lucy and various restaurants. Marlene Brown, Cornwell presents dishes from her mystery titles, preceded by brief relevant excerpts from each one. Italian sausage pizza from Postmortem is followed by 28 more feasts, including Pollo al Limone (shared by Scarpetta and Wesley Benton as they tracked a New York serial killer on Christmas) and Marino's Breakfast Bagel Sandwich from Point of Origin. Sections on olive oil, pasta and tomatoes, lists of the contents of Kay's pantry and freezer and 40 full-color photographs vivify her culinary secrets. (Nov.)
