Nero Wolfe Mysteries
by Rex Stout
Rex Stout wrote 33 novels and 39 novellas in which he created a main character, Nero Wolfe, who dined at home in each mystery. Business is not discussed at the dinner table and he generally eats an appetizer, a main course, a salad after his entrée, and a dessert. In 1973, a cookbook was published featuring the recipes from the novels!
