Lieutenant Columbo’s Scallopini

Murder Under Glass is the BEST Columbo episode for foodies.  There is so much brilliant stuff going on with Cioppino, “Bon Snacks” biscuits and Japanese blowfish I cannot even begin to explain…  If you have never seen it, seek it out on DVD...

Peter Falk’s Spare Ribs

Peter Falk’s Spare Ribs

Ooh, Spare Ribs – yes!   I didn’t have hooks from which to suspend the ribs in my oven, as the legendary Mr Falk suggested.  I simply plonked them on the oven rack with the grill pan lower down in the oven underneath them to catch any drips....

Peter Falk’s Pork Chops with Vinegar Peppers

Peter Falk’s Pork Chops with Vinegar Peppers
