Too Many Cooks is one of the more fun Nero Wolf mysteries. Not only does the big man get on a train but he eats and sleeps outside of Manhattan (always Wolf at his most outrageous).The plot turns on a group of international gourmands, including Wolf, being able to identify what ingredient is left out of a particular dish. Lots of touchy chefs, great descriptions of dishes. Only drawback to the book is that it takes place in the old South and there is some unsettling racism. Stout shows Wolf as being quiet enlightened about race but still some of the talk is unsettling for our times.
