The beloved New York Times bestselling culinary mystery writer delivers a cookbook packed with more than 160 mouthwatering recipes and charming anecdotes about her writing and cooking life.
Diane Mott Davidson is the author of seventeen bestselling mysteries featuring caterer/sleuth Goldy Schulz, a woman who “took the lemon that life had given her and made not just lemonade but Lemon Chicken, Lemon Bars, Lemon Cookies and Lemon Meringue Pie.” Each Goldy novel includes recipes for scrumptious dishes from the adored character’s kitchen. Now, Davidson has collected these treasured recipes and some brand-new dishes in one volume for the first time.
Here are recipes for Appetizers and Soups, Eggs and Cheese, Salads and Starches, Meat, Poultry, and Fish, Breads, Desserts, and finally Low-Carb Recipes (how Davidson lost thirty pounds and kept them off). Most of the dishes came from “playing around with dishes tasted in restaurants.” Others are family favorites, some came from friends, and a few are “happy accidents.” At last, fans can enjoy delicious fare such as Bacon-Wrapped Artichokes with Dijon Cream Sauce, Diamond Lovers’ Hot Crab Dip, Sweethearts’ Swedish Meatballs in Burgundy Sauce, André’s Coq au Vin, Ice-Capped Gingersnaps, Damson-in-Distress Plum Tart, and Dad’s Bread.
Part memoir, part writing manual, part cookbook, Goldy’s Kitchen Cookbook combines the author’s gift for storytelling with her skills in the kitchen. She introduces the recipes with stories about how she came to create them, anecdotes from her experiences as a writer and home cook, and includes her joy at receiving a fan letter from the legendary French Chef herself, Julia Child.
Full of irresistible food, Goldy’s Kitchen Cookbook is a must-have book for Davidson fans, food lovers, and cooks everywhere.

I love this series and i love the recipes in here! Cant wait to try them out!!!!!
I am a HUGE fan of Goldy Schultz mysteries! Short of a new Goldy mystery this is the perfect next best thing. GOLDY'S KITCHEN COOKBOOK: COOKING,WRITING,FAMILY & LIFE BY DIANE MOTT DAVIDSON was not a difficult read because it is loaded with recipes that have made mine and other Goldy mystery fans mouths water! Not only do we get great recipes but little tidbits from Diane Mott Davidson as well. I love the way this is set up. You get the recipes from the mystery books complete with notations of which book they come from as well as some history and life of the author,which gives fans an insight on how she created Goldy & John Korman. Diane Mott Davidson doesnt just write a bunch of recipes she is telling us about the recipes,how they came to be and how she has modified them to perfection. The writing of this "cookbook" is like a bunch of friends sitting around with cookies and a drink swapping gossip and recipes.To me, its just a down home type of book which I enjoyed very much. Read it as a book not a cookbook,I did and enjoyed it immensely I received this book from goodreads in exchange for a review
