About the Author

  Court Nederveld was born a small child one dark and stormy night. There, got that bit of dribble out of my system. Epicuria is the culmination of an experiment in crossing the mundane with an unleashed imagination. I rarely know where my writing will find a topic. Former retired editor of the Punta Gorda Herald and now a freelance writer Gordon Bower may have pegged it spot on. "Mustangs, computer, food or a letter to the Queen of the Netherlands, the subject made no difference. As editor of his Bits & Bytes column and a variety of other musings for eight years, I can truthfully say he never failed to make me laugh."  Currently living in Southwest Florida, I enjoy waking up each morning with no forwarning of what ideas may find their way onto my path.  Enjoy!

Ever since reading Cross Creek Cookery by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, I have savored the mixture of recipe and story, and now I have feasted on a tasty second course:  Epicuria: Adventures That Really Cook! by Court Nederveld. Whereas Rawlings uses an anecdotal format, Nederveld has concocted a delicious adventure in which his family's recipes serve as the magic ingredients to deliver him from Epicuria, a realm in the neighborhood of Alice's Wonderland.  As a hero of unlikely kitchens, he tosses salads, bakes chicken, and whips up desserts to rescue unfortunates and beat villains. His quest is no half-baked fantasy, but rather a scrumptious metaphor for life. What else would I expect from a writer who bicycles 25 miles to eat Sunday breakfast at a cafe, established in 1929, in the historic town near my home--but that's an appetizer for another book!
