Join New York Times bestselling culinary-mystery author Diane Mott Davidson in this long-awaited cookbook featuring more than 160 mouthwatering recipes and charming anecdotes about her writing and cooking life. Written in the style of a memoir, Goldy's Kitchen Cookbook will give readers an inside look at the events that shaped the making of this beloved series.
Award-winning author Diane Mott Davidson has written seventeen bestselling mysteries featuring caterer/sleuth Goldy Schulz, a dauntless 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." In each Goldy novel, Davidson includes recipes for scrumptious dishes from her adored character's kitchen. Now, these treasured recipes and some brand-new dishes are collected together in one volume for the first time.
Inside Goldy's Kitchen Cookbook you'll find recipes for Appetizers and Soups; Eggs and Cheese; Spuds, Salads, Etc.; Meat, Poultry, and Fish; Breads; and Desserts. Davidson also includes Low-Carb Recipes (for those on low-carbohydrate diets). Most of these luscious treats came from "playing around with dishes [she'd] tasted in restaurants." Others are family favorites. Some came from friends, and a few are "happy accidents."
Feed your guests the way Goldy does, with such delicious appetizers, such as Bacon-Wrapped Artichokes with Dijon Cream Sauce, Diamond Lovers' Hot Crab Dip, and Models' Mushroom Soup. Get ready for the big game with Nachos Schulz and Tom's Layered Mexican Dip. Dijon Pasta Salad, Anniversary Burgers, and Goalies' Grilled Tuna are sure to liven up every picnic and barbecue. In winter, enjoy the indoors with Snowboarders' Pork Tenderloin and Quiche Me Quick, and entertain your nearest and dearest with delights like Sweethearts' Swedish Meatballs in Burgundy Sauce, André's Coq au Vin, and Dad's Bread. And don't forget to leave room for Ice-Capped Gingersnaps, Damson-in-Distress Plum Tart, Fudge Soufflé, and other delectable desserts.
Part memoir, part writing manual, part cookbook, Goldy's Kitchen Cookbook combines Davidson'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 how she learned to become a competent home cook. She also talks about her joy at receiving a fan letter from the legendary French Chef herself, Julia Child.
Full of irresistible food and wonderful insights, Goldy's Kitchen Cookbook is a delight for Davidson fans, food lovers, and cooks everywhere.
