The crime is served

Menus by Agatha Christie

Among poisons mixed with drinks or food and dining rooms as perfect backgrounds for smart crimes, “The crime is served” debunks the old-age prejudice related to English cuisine.

Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple, page by page, recipe after recipe, take the reader into the discovery of two modest characters of the most popular detective novels in the world: food and Britain food habits. With bated breath, you can re-experience the author’s novels with an everlasting unveiling of corresponding relations between suspense, literature and the pleasure of the palate.

Updated edition with the appendix “Poisonous food”.
