Recipe for Murder: Frightfully Good Food Inspired by Fiction is the product of a creative collaboration between culinary writer and cookbook author Estérelle Payany and illustrator Jean-Franciois Martin.
The book documents 31 recipes inspired by the literary villains in thrillers, crime novels and fairytales. Recipes include The Big Bad Wolf’s Pigs in a Blanket, Hannibal Lector’s Express Sweetbreads and Brutus’s Real Caesar Salad. Each chapter provides excerpts from the novel, an accompanying illustration and the delicious recipe. This is definitely one I’d like to own.
