Murder Never Tasted So Good
Author Nadia Gordon’s Sunny McCoskey Napa Valley Mysteries are a series of mystery novels that engage both the imagination and the senses. Set in Northern California’s wine country, the food and wine of the region figure prominently as chef Sunny McCoskey finds herself deep in intrigue among the vineyards and her own restaurant.
This unique combination makes this book a natural pick for mystery-minded foodies and oenophiles. One such fan is celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, who chose Lethal Vintage (the fourth book in the series) for her first book club episode on her Food Network TV show, Giada at Home. In the episode, Giada cooks a menu inspired by the book and serves it to her club. While the ladies chat about the book they enjoy a radicchio, pear, arugula salad; grilled scallops with orange scented quinoa; and lemon meringue with amaretti cookie topping. Get the recipes here.
Giada at Home airs on Saturdays at 11:30am/10:30am central.
