    One thought on “Food To Die For: Secrets From Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen”

    1. I'm an avid Patricia Cornwell fan, and have always been impressed by her character Kay Scarpetta's ability to whip up delicious fare in the midst of turmoil at the office. This cookbook lists several recipes associated with 11 well-known entries in the Scarpetta series. Each is introduced with a set-up from the book, so the recipes are always tied back into the stories--as opposed to simply a series spinoff, variations on recipes are offered in box text, and there are 40 or so high-quality color [...]

    2. Anyone who reads Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series will be aware of the mouthwatering food that Kay cooks. This book gives us some of the recipes from the books, and yes they are as mouth watering as they seem!This is a must read for all fans of Kay's series although it is not essential to know about the series to enjoy the recipes,I do think you will get more from the book is you are familiar with the series.The foods are divided into Appetisers,soups,salads and side dishes,breads dinner [...]

    3. I can always count on Patricia Cornwell to whip up a light and fluffy novel. When I heard she wrote a cookbook based on food prepared in her Kay Scarpetta novels, I knew I would have to check this out. Kay Scarpetta is the starring character in several of Cornwell's novels. She is a brilliant medical examiner who solves crimes, catches the serial killer, and in general, saves the day. Cornwell does not leave any details out of her novels concerning the grisly murders, autopsies, etc. I was expec [...]

    4. The chocolate chip cookies recipe is worth the price of the entire book. Best I've ever had. My family loves them. I had a copy of this from years back and lost it, and took me forever to track down another just to get that recipe!

    5. I could be glib and say "d if you eat these recipes you will die." In truth, most of them are boring and sub-standard. She hasn't returned to food writing in some time in her oeuvre. That may be a smart move. The character of Scarpetta just seems to grow more rigid and unyielding, massive OCD issues, control issues, and outright bad mood bossiness. If Cornwell wrote a decorating book, I can only imagine the furniture would have to be aligned with a ruler. The one joy about this book? On the back [...]

    6. I was searching for a recipe the other day and decided to try to find it in Patricia Cornwell's Food to Die For. As I thought, there the sauce was, timeless and beautifully photographed. I bought the book around 2003 and read it without duplicating any of the recipes in my own kitchen. I reread Food to Die For a few years ago and recorded it on . I had some Key limes at that time and made the pie recipe. I remember thinking how wonderful the book was to read, how beautiful the illustrations, how [...]

    7. Crime Time Podcast is a massive Patricia Cornwell fan. Finding Kay Scarpetta's cook book was a treat and we cooked our way through the Miami Style Chili with Beer. Delicious. Next up, the infamous Chocolate Chip Cookies. Is there a more special way to connect with fans of the books then to offer them the meals that Kay Scarpetta herself so generously cooks up in the series? Loved it. To check out the Miami Style Chili with Beer we cooked up and to listen to a Podcast dedicated to all things crim [...]

    8. Disclaimer: I'm not a huge cook but I do like to cook sometimes & I am a Kay Scarpetta fan.I love how this book explores the food in the series and gives me a chance to appreciate all the yummy description of what Kay Scarpetta enjoys as comfort food.Whilst I find most recipes looks a little bit more complicated (ie. requires more effort on my part than I'd like to) there are at least half a dozen recipes I'd like to try. And I've even baked 'Lucy's favourite chocolate chip surprise cookies' [...]

    9. I have followed the Kay Scarpetta's book series from it's beginning. I love the character of Scarpetta who is a Medical Examiner/Pathologist/Criminologist.This book contains many of the recipes written about in the books. I loved reading the author's information about where the recipes came from, and great ways to serve themIf you love Italian cooking, I recommend this book!(Ok I admit that many of the recipes are more time consuming than I am willing to spend, but it's fun to dream.)

    10. I picked this up at a library book sale and found a recipe for ravioli and can want to use my press that I found at an estate sale. The scene is set with a flashback to the part in whichever book the meal came from, making me go and start reading them all over again. The recipes are fantastic, easy to make, and taste great. Next time Kay Scarpetta whips up some of her fabulous pasta, I'll know just how good it is!

    11. Fabulous recipes in here. If you love Italian food, must try. Dan and I used to have every Thursday be "Italian Night".we would try out a new recipe every Thursday with a bottle of wine. This was before the kids schedules became a priority of courseybe someday it will get back to that???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ho hum

    12. This is wonderful. In addition to being a forensic expert, Kay Scarpetta is a great Italian cook - this is mentioned in the novels. When I saw this cookbook, it was a must have. 'fun because of the novels, but great recipes, too.

    13. not read so much as cooked from!! Her recipes are definitely to die for & fairly easy to do as I'm a bit useless in the kitchen. If you want to do something a little different that sounds & looks posh & tastes delicious than this is the book for you!

    14. This is a cookbook, but a really good one. I have made a few of the recipes a few times now and they are becoming fast favorites.

    15. Mouth watering pictures and excerpts from these great murder mystery books, but I doubt I will ever make any of recipes. Fun to look through for ideas, though.

    16. My aunt bought me this book for Christmas. I keep it on my kitchen counter and have made many recipes. I love the grilled pizza the best!

    17. Some of the recipes are good, but there aren't many "unique" recipes in here. She makes everything from scratch, so for those of us who are convenience cooks, it's probably not high on the list.
