Janet Laurence's extensive knowledge of Scandinavian cuisine began as a child through her strong family connections with Norway, Sweden and Denmark. In 1982, Janet set up a variety of residential training courses for both adults and children, as well as regularly running cooking demonstrations. In the mid-1980s, she wrote a regular food column for The Daily Telegraph. As well as several cookbooks, she has written a series of mystery novels featuring a Cordon Bleu cook, Darina Lisle, as the protagonist. This is her third cookbook.From Library Journal:
Tall, attractive Darina Lisle, recently shed of her own catering business, pitches in to help former school chum Eve--an ambitious London caterer--out of a predicament. The sick woman Darina temporarily replaces soon dies from eating a poisoned mushroom, probably meant for Eve. A subsequent poisoning (hemlock this time) discovered by Darina provides some of the best nonfood description in the book. Long on food preparation, short on action, this one stimulates enough juices to keep the pages turning. Mostly for gastronomes.
