"Red Sparrow" one recipe/chapter

2 posts in this topic

Red Sparrow is not a cookbook:


but is has one recipe for a dish mentioned in the previous chapter. the reviewer didnt care for this but I think its interesting, and the author uses food to good effect.

He has paid attention:

In chapter 10 there is a tapas function at the spanish embassy. "Spanish Embassy Tortilla Espanola" is the read deal.

if you happen to read this book and make anything let us ( me ) know

Chapter 7: Tarik's Adana Kebab looks interesting to me. Granted the atmosphere created in each chapter add to each dish.

nothing complicated here. vary spare Rx's

Nora Ephron did something similar with her novel "Heartburn", where the food (and recipes) popped up regularly in the book (the protagonist was a cookbook author and cooking show host). I never attempted any of the recipes from the book but they did sound good.

“Peter: Oh my god, Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits. It says, 'Oooooo.'

Brian: Peter, those are Cheerios.”
