The Murder, She Wrote Cookbook!

Hot on the heels of the Columbo cookbook, I am working on a Murder, She Wrote follow-up. The Murder, She Cooked book will contain the favourite recipes of Angela Lansbury and many of her wonderful co-stars. The signature dishes of classic Hollywood stars such as Janet Leigh, Cesar Romero, Cyd Charisse, Robert Vaughn, David McCallum, Tippi Hedren, June Havoc and many, many more will be included. It’s going to be fabulous!

The cookbook is in its early stages (and the publication date is still a long way off) but the call is out for test cooks. Would you like to be part of this fun project? EVERYONE WELCOME, whatever your cooking skills!

Choose your recipe, leave a comment below or contact me via this page and I’ll send you the recipe and a feedback form.

    Well I’m torn between going with a recipe based purely on it having a rude name (Jane Powell’s Saucy Pigs) or Joe Santos’ One Hot Italian Night because he sounds like a suave felly. Or do I go for Kathryn Grayson’s Baked Alaska as I’ve just eaten one in Austria and it was delicious, or David Soul’s China’s Snowballs because I’ve met him and he was a bit of a dish for an older man.
    Could you send me any or all of those please Ms Artichoke. Ta very much. x

    I would love to make Brenda Vaccaro’s Mario’s Saltimbocca Alla Romano. I’ve always loved saltimbocca im restaurants and it would be great to attempt it at home. I was raised by my grandma and great grandma, and Murder She Wrote was in our roster of shows. This is so fun and exciting!

    Sincerely,
    Annalisa

    Hi there,

    what a wonderful idea. Only downside is that we can only pick one recipe. I found so many I would love to try…but I settled for Efrem Zimbalist Jr.’s Meatless Casserole, if still available!

    Reply
    • Jenny

      Hi Sam! I know, choosing just one is difficult eh?! I will send over Efrem’s recipe soon – it’s a weird one so feel free to choose again if you look at it and think, “WHAT ON EARTH?!” Jenny x

        Totally a “WHAT ON EARTH” reaction 😀
        If anyone happens to know what “canned vegetable protein dinner cuts” are then please do share your wisdom!

        I will give it a go but since it might be more of a new creation, how about you assign any vegetarian or vegan recipe to me…just to be on the safe side 😀

    Hi! I just stumbled across your site and am so excited – I love Murder She Wrote SO much! I was looking through the list and wondered about a couple of recipes that are featured in episodes of the show that I didn’t see mentioned but think would be kind of perfect – a seafood chowder (featured in Who Threw the Barbitals in Mrs Fletcher’s Chowder), and an apple pie (Seth and Mort are often over at Jessica’s for pie)! So much fun!

    Reply

      Hi Sherrie – thanks for those suggestions, there will be recipes for seafood chowder and apple pie in the book but the book is really focused on recipes are favourites of the movie stars who appeared in the show.
