Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* I see there are some books on here that are mysteries with some recipes included in the back. Are these what the list intended? I wouldn't think so but without a description it's hard to tell.


message 2: by Allie (new)

Allie I removed "The Paleo Comfort Foods Cookbook: 36 Everyday Paleo Recipes " from the list because it's just a regular cookbook.

I think those books would be better suited to Mysteries in good taste, Culinary mysteries, Novels with Recipes, Food Related Fiction, and Foodie Novels.

Even though I didn't create the list, I'll add a description and add those books to other appropriate lists. Given the title, I think limiting it to actual cookbooks is right-on.

Allie I also created a new list TV Show & Movie Cookbooks because many of the books on this list are not actually based on literature.

The books I moved over to that list are:
-The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like a Local
-The Sopranos Family Cookbook: As Compiled by Artie Bucco
-Zuzu Bailey's It's A Wonderful Life Cookbook: Recipes and Anecdotes Inspired by America's Favorite Movie
-The Some Like It Hot Cookbook


There are also a books I added to that list without removing them from this one as they represent both movies/TV and books.


message 6: by Sean (new)

Sean I don't have any of the books on the list, but for the fans of Georges Simenon's Maigret novels, there is a cookbook called Madame Maigret's Recipes by Robert J Courtine which I would recommend. Each recipe has a quote(s) from the books(s) and a note as to what beverage Maigret drank with each meal.
