Tish Tarragon is catering for a wedding, but the weekend goes from sweet to sour when a guest at the venue is poisoned.


Literary caterer and owner of Cookin' the Books cafe Tish Tarragon is pushing thoughts of her impending eviction aside to prepare an appetising welcome buffet for a wedding weekend at Abbingdon Green Bed and Breakfast. While there, Tish witnesses one of the guests, controversial TV chef and restaurant critic, Gunner Randall, threatening staff after missing breakfast and making do with a mushroom omelet.


When Randall is found dead the following day, it soon becomes clear that poisoned mushrooms were behind his demise. With no shortage of potential suspects and motives, can Tish and her new beau, Sheriff Clemson Reade, uncover who was enraged enough with the unsavoury star to silence him for good?

 Mushroom Palmiers 

Makes 40 

2 tablespoons/30 grams unsalted butter 

¾ pound/340 grams fresh mushrooms (white or brown) chopped 

2 medium shallots, finely chopped 

1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced 

¾ teaspoon lemon juice 

¾ teaspoon hot sauce (I use Frank’s) 

¼ teaspoon salt 

1 pack frozen puff pastry (two sheets), thawed 

1 large egg 

2 teaspoons water 

Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. 

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and shallots and cook, stirring, until tender. Stir in thyme, lemon juice, hot sauce, and salt. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. 

Unfold one pastry sheet and place it on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. 

Place half the mushroom mixture in the middle of the pastry and spread to within ½ inch/1.25 cm of the edges. Roll up both sides, width-wise, until the rolls meet in the middle. Repeat with the second puff pastry sheet and mushrooms. 

Cut both rolled pastry sheets into approximately 20 slices. 

In a small bowl, whisk egg and water. Brush over pastries. 

 Bake for 15–20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. 

Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. Why does this remind me of the Clint Eastwood movie where he is wounded during the Civil War and those nice female students feed him poisoned mushrooms?
