A cookbook (of sorts) for Louise Penny fans

 Louise Penny books

If you are a Louise Penny fan, you're probably excited for the upcoming August release of her new book, A Great Reckoning. For those new to Ms. Penny, she is a Canadian author of mystery novels set in the Canadian province of Quebec centred on the work of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. Penny has been awarded the John Creasey Dagger, Nero, and Barry Awards, as well as two each of the Arthur Ellis, Macavity, and Dilys Awards. Additionally, Louise has won five Agatha Awards and five Anthony Awards. A Great Reckoning will be the twelfth book in the Gamache series.

Although the books are mysteries, food plays a prominent role in the novels, and fans have long requested a cookbook based on the Gamache books. Penny's publisher, Minotaur, has recently announced that it would start issuing recipes from the world of Three Pines. Every two weeks beginning March 22 (the website says 2015 but that is a typo), Minotaur will release one recipe from each book in the series, 11 recipes in all. An open online discussion will accompany each of the recipes.

Following are the dates when the recipes and discussions will open for each of the places / books:

    The food in the books just enhances the enjoyment of the series. The appearance of recipes in such an accessible form will be a well-deserved dessert for us fans!
