In every mystery Wolfe and his wry young operative and fellow detective Archie Goodwin sit down to an extraordinary meal prepared by Fritz Brenner, Wolfe's world-class personal chef. In response to readers who demanded recipes for the dishes, The Nero Wolfe Cookbook
was created, in which the secrets of many of Brenner's recipes are revealed, such as Shad-Roe Mousse Pocahontas, Salad with Devil's Rain Dressing, Bread Triangles Fried in Anchovy Butter, and more than 200 others. The Nero Wolfe Cookbook
is filled with one-of-a-kind, high-cuisine recipes spiced by quotes from memorable Nero Wolfe whodumts, as well as observations about Wolfe and food from the books. Forty-four photos recall New York in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s when the Empire State Building was new, art deco was the rage, and Wolfe and Goodwin were in their prime.
