Murder Your Employer

DNF - got too complicated too fast. Main character talks to himself so much I lost the story line. Lots of one-liner jokes if you're over 30. Just not my cup of tea

by Karim Alrawi

This book has stories, recipes, and food history, plus fun illustrations. My favorite part was the food history, e.g., Iraq claims to have over a hundred different types of dates. I want to make the Mamoul (date-filled cookies).
