Columbo Cookbook

Calling all Columbo fans – I’m on the hunt for test cooks to try out recipes for my forthcoming Columbo cookbook!

columbo-in-hat

If you would like to try out one (or more) of these dishes and give me some feedback, please drop me a message via the contact page and I’ll send the recipe over to you. You’ll get an acknowledgment in the book and my everlasting friendship!

Don’t worry if someone has already bagsied something you fancy, I’m happy for several people to try out the same recipe.

Not all of these blog posts below include the recipes, but I think they all include photographs of the finished dish so you can click on the link to have a look, and see what you fancy making.  There’s plenty of time to volunteer, I’d like to have all recipes test cooked by the end of August 2017.  As folks are allocated recipes, I’ll add their name to the list…

Feel free to forward the link to this page to friends and family – the more the merrier!
