Nero Wolfe/1930's Dinner Party
A colleague of mine from Boston is moving down here (NC). I know she is a huge Nero Wolfe fan. I'd like to throw a Nero Wolfe dinner party (think 1930's dining) for about 8 of us. A dinner and an episode from the TV series from a few years back.
1. Has anyone tried the Nero Wolfe cookbook? How were the results?
2. Aside from NW, any other suggested recipes/sources?
Thanks in advance.
Lamb chops with mint sauce? Wolfe would be apoplectic.
The leg of lamb recipe in the Nero Wolfe Cookbook is very good and simple to prepare.
i have made several of the recipes and they all seem to work well.
I'm not so sure how easy it will be to find the NW cook book, but you could always just pick a dish from a story or book and improvise. I think it is a terrific idea. remember to wear a yellow shirt.
My mom is a huge Nero Wolfe fan, so I asked her your question. Here is what she said:
"One thing that pops immediately into mind is fresh homemade sausage. Fritz was the name of his chef. But I don't think he actually made the sausage himself, although he could. He was a chef that could do anything."
Wolfe believed "a guest is a jewel that rests on a cushion of hospitality". He sets the bar high!
