We invited Edible readers to share memorable food-related books; here is a recommendation by Fred Young in Springboro, Ohio.
DYING FOR CHOCOLATE
by Diane Mott Davidson
I read with interest your Edible Reads column in the most recent Edible Ohio Valley I picked up from Dorothy Lane Market. I wanted to add an author, as opposed to a single book; her books on the concept are numerous. Her name is Diane Mott Davidson. She wrote a series on Goldie Schultz, a divorced then remarried caterer in Colorado. Her books are a fun escape, in the “whodunit” genre. Each novel contains great recipes, some of whom we used as a theme for one of our most successful gourmet club dinners. I suggest The Grilling Season, The Main Corpse, and Dying for Chocolate.
