The site received a comment a few days ago from Patricia who would like help identifying an author:
“I have just found your site and am absolutely thrilled to find your wonderful lists, especially those of the culinary cozies.
It may not be appropriate to ask for help here, but I just have to try! I’m desperately seeking the name of what I believe would be classified as a cozy, but I don’t know the name or the author. I found a couple of recipes I copied from the book, and all the information I know for certain comes from these two xeroxed pages: the protagonist is named Jane and the two recipes (tea scones and Madeleine’s truffles) were supposedly Jane’s mother’s. As I recall, Jane was not engaged in any sort of culinary related profession before finding these recipes. Jane went to visit a relative (I think) at a time of marital strife and found or was given her mother’s “recipe book.” Has anyone ever heard of this book? I’m guessing this book is one of a series, and I’d look to get reacquainted with this unknown author.”
If you think you might be able to help Patricia identify the author, please post a comment. Thank you!
