Based on a series of novels by author Peter King, the Gourmet Detective movies is a long-running series of films, about a chef turned sleuth and a police detective. The series – which stars Dylan Neal and Brooke Burns – made its debut with two movies on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel in 2015, before leading to sequels in 2016, 2017, and 2020.

In this post, I am taking a look at the Gourmet Detective movies to provide details about the series, and provide you with a running order. So, if you have never watched the series, or you simply want to play catch up, this is the post for you.
