FOODS IN ANGIE'S KITCHEN
could forget the recipes in SOMETHING'S COOKING, the book that introduced Angelina
Amalfi and San Francisco Homicide Inspector Paavo Smith to the world?
Recipes for pureed brussels sprouts over poached eggs, or sauerkraut chocolate
cake, plus references to marshmallow and bean sprout blintzes, peanut butter
omelets and liver-pate waffles were featured.
recipes and top San Francisco restaurant menus are discussed in later books
(except, perhaps, for a few soymilk and beancurd "delights" in COOKING
UP TROUBLE). Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate caused some serious reader
salivating in COOK'S NIGHT OUT. And on and on it goes.
are some featured recipes for your enjoyment:
A delicate butter pecan cookie
A simple, out of this world, super-fudgy brownie
ZESTY CORN CHOWDER
Sweet corn, potatoes, bacon, onions, and chiles for "zest"
make this a wonderful soup.
PASTA WITH PROSCIUTTO AND SUN-DRIED TOMATOES
This is one of Paavos favorite dishes. The mincing and chopping
take a little time, but the actual cooking goes very fast.
Angie searches out interesting foods for a party buffet in the A COOK IN TIME.
Bruschetta (pronounced broo-ske-ta) is wonderful at any time.
EASY CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES
In honor of COOK'S NIGHT OUT, in which Angie decides to become a chocolatier
(the Lady Godiva of the 21st century--Godiva chocolates, that is), this and
the next easy recipes for easy-to-make chocolate candy.
More chocolate from COOK'S NIGHT OUT.
The name of these Italian cookies means "bones of the dead." What
could be a better cookie to munch on while reading a tasty murder mystery?
SESAME CHICKEN WINGS
This recipe is a perennial party favorite--absolutely the tastiest recipes
for chicken wings you'll ever taste.
This recipe of the month was discussed in SOMETHING'S COOKING (in which a police
officer thought it was a joke--it isn't. It's actually delicious. Have your
friends guess the "secret" ingredient.)
OF PASSION PIE
This is Joanne Pence's favorite pie.
