Cooking the Books

I’ve never been able to cook. While I’m stuck at home during the Coronavirus outbreak, I’ve decided to put my time to good use and learn some basic recipes. So here they are, two minute videos that not only show you to how to cook some delicious, simple dishes but also reviews of some of my favourite crime novels (with the odd non-crime book thrown in!) in each one.

Episode 1Chicken Curry … and reviews of two brilliant crime novels SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS by David Guterson and DEFENDING JACOB by William Landay, as well as bestselling uplit novel THE CACTUS by Sarah Hayward.

In Episode 2 – Lamb Rogan Josh … and reviews of two brilliant crime novels THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE by Stuart Turton and THE SILENT PATIENT by Alex Michaelides
