Columbo Cookbook

Cooking With Columbo is available on Amazon, via Smashwords, and to order from your local bookshops and libraries.  Episode guides for each of the 69 episodes, plus recipes from the kitchen of Peter Falk and many of his wonderful co-stars.

The book contains episode guides for all episodes of Columbo, focusing on the food and drink moments scattered throughout the series.

I am truly honoured to be mentioned in the same breath as Mark Dawidziak in this lovely tweet by @TVisHistory

“How to follow the classic series guide (to the first run) about COLUMBO by Mark Dawidziak? If you’re you do something wildly creative by adding in lots of recipes inspired by the show & its guest stars & get the estimable to write the forword”
