About the Author
Jenny Hammerton learned to cook from the glittering screen stars of yesteryear. Many years ago, in a dusty, stamp and postcard collectables shop, she stumbled upon a vintage celebrity cookbook. This chance find would change her life. The manic collecting began, and her celebrity recipe archive now numbers over 7000. She probably won’t live long enough to try all these dishes, but she’s going to give it a good go. Movie star recipe successes (and failures) have been documented on the Silver Screen Suppers website for over a decade. A graduate of the UEA Masters in Film Archiving course, Jenny has worked in film archives for over twenty years. She adores her job and is currently working with the British Movietone cinema newsreel collection. Jenny lives in Muswell Hill, North London with her DVD box set of Columbo.

They say, along with that other beloved classic US show I LOVE LUCY, COLUMBO is showing on a TV screen somewhere in the world, night and day, 24-7! COLUMBO is still loved 50 years on, because of its unique mix of crime, comedy and an always stellar celebrity cast - led by the wonderful Peter Falk. But a less obvious thread that ran through each episode was food, and author Jenny Hammerton exploits that rich and delicious seam to the max in her marvellous new book.
Ms Hammerton is known as the queen of retro Hollywood cuisine with her superb SILVER SCREEN SUPPERS website. If you have never visited it, you are in for a real treat! COOKING WITH COLUMBO continues that tradition, with a mind boggling array of recipes that were either featured in Columbo or championed by its many guest stars. What's more, each dish has been created anew and sampled by an army of test cooks just for this book. Their findings are as entertaining as they are honest and give readers a steer on whether or not a dish is for them (Leonard Nimoy's potatoes with bananas, anyone?!) There's a smorgasbord of yummy fayre to be found like William Shatner's Steak Picado, Billy Connolly's stuffed trout dish and Columbo's own foolproof cheese and onion omelette.
Jenny's own resumes of the Columbo episodes that inspired each recipe are great fun and give the book added spice!
COOKING WITH COLUMBO is a must have for the book shelf of every foodie and lover of kitsch in the kitchen! As the great man himself would say: "Just one more thing - Bon appetit!"
