Anyone who has visited Pickaxe, four hundred miles from nowhere, up there in Moose County will revel in this new cookbook featuring the characters from The Cat Who... series. Gather around a table and enjoy the foods that might be served at a reunion of these stalwart folks who live a life in a hard climate but flourish because of their togetherness.

Join Qwilleran as he attends the Ogilvie-Fugtree Reunion. Dine on Hush Puppies, Cherry Cola Salad, Elizabeth's Fruit Mold, Stoplight Salad, Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw, Potato-Mac Salad, etc., etc., etc.. All the above mentioned foods come with their own recipes.

Be at Qwill's side as he graces the Inchpot Fourth of July Reunion Picnic where the dishes were to be red, white, or blue! Such foods include Strawberry Bread, Pickled Watermelon Rind, Three Bean Salad, and Apple Relish. Maybe try a Paul Bunyan Burger or Sloppy Joes and Evelyn's Crispy Chicken. I opt for the Cranberry Cream Pie simply because I have never tasted this dish and would love to give it a try.

Dishes and recipes for these foods served at the Goodwinter Family Reunion and four more reunions follow in close order. The foods listed for the Cat Reunion sound fun and filling - also tasty, especially the Devilish Mice. Brush up on the doings and eatings of the residents of Pickaxe as well as their feline friends via The Cat Who... Reunion Cookbook.
