Culinary mysteries AND recipes, I will have to check it out!!!
I read every one of the Mitford Series by Jan Karon, about an episcopalian preist and all the wonderful people he comes in contact with. There are so many mentions of good food in it that finally the author hired some cooks to actually make recipes for them (the best is the infamous Orange Marmalade Cake) and she put out a book called the Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Primer. Another favourite part is the dog that "adopts" Father Tim and will only obey when scriptures are shouted at him! I think these books would appeal to anyone who loves food, people and a good story.
