Cooking the Books: A Killer Collection of Recipes to Die For by The Hobeck Team

Thanks very much to Team Hobeck for an eARC copy for review.

This time around its a very different read from what I'm typically accustomed to, if you follow my reviews you'll know I'm attracted to Horror/Blood & Gore/Crime/Historical Fiction/Time Travel reads, but this time it's about food, yes you heard right, food!!. Not your Jaime Oliver type of recipe book, these are stories written by the Hobecks authors & the publishers themselves.

A delicious fun/quick read to delight your palate. The recipe I have to try is: Chrismas Nut Roast by Lewis Hastings and the detailed preparation is superb!!. Also, the Matese Rabbit Pasta story by AJ Aberford is so good it reminds me of my home with its relaxed Mediterranean attitude to...everything!.

In reality, all the stories are great with all the different recipes, with a touch of crime and murder.

An anthology which deserves a re-read because it's so different there's something for everyone. I highly recommend you to buy it not because it's a cracking read, you're also helping The Trussell Trust and supporting food banks all over the UK.
