Columbo Cooking

Those of a certain age, or possibly even those who are younger, since it ran off and on for 32 years, probably remember Columbo, the LAPD TV detective who gave every impression of being slightly bumbling and unorganized, but who in reality was sly as a fox and way ahead of the criminals he pursued. He never lost his temper, even when criminals underestimated him, jeered at him and basically called him an idiot to his face. He always got his man or woman in the end. I LOVE Columbo!  So imagine how excited I was to learn that there is a Columbo cookbook coming soon, by Jenny Hammerton, of Silver Screen Suppers! Best of all, I was given the opportunity to test a recipe for the book - Theodore Bikel's Glorified Meatloaf! Bikel played an insufferable genius on the show, but he did know a thing or two about meatloaf. It was delicious!

Theodore Bikel's Glorified Meatloaf. Slightly purple, owing to A LOT of wine.

I hear Jenny is still looking for recipe testers, so be sure to visit her blog and get in touch if you're interested!
