Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Todd Wilbur #1 bestselling Top Secret Recipes series
 
"[Wilbur's] problem isn't that the recipes he's devised aren't good enough, it's that they're too good."—Entertainment Weekly
 
"There is something magically compelling about the idea of making such foods at home...The allure is undeniable, and [the books are] stuffed with tidbits and lore you're unlikely to find anywhere else. These probably come as close as you can get to the original recipes."—Boston Herald
 
"This is the cookbook to satisfy all your cravings."—Juli Huss, author of The Faux Gourmet
 
"The recipes are easy to follow and... by preparing your own versions of restaurant meals you will almost always save money."—Arizona Daily Star
 
"[Wilbur's] recipes use everyday supermarket ingredients to bring brand-name foods to the home kitchen. Perhaps not surprisingly, his recipes are not complex. If anything, they reflect how easy home cooking can be."—Star Tribune (Minneapolis--St. Paul)
 
"The assignment: Find out how to make the tasty Jack Daniels Grill Sauce used by T.G.I. Friday's restaurants. The client: Oprah Winfrey. The gumshoe: Todd Wilbur. Mission Impossible for even the most savvy food expert. But not so for Todd Wilbur, a crackerjack culinary sleuth."—Pocono Record
  
"Many of [Wilbur's] dishy imitations come, like a box of Cracker Jacks, with a surprise inside."—Mademoiselle
Publishers Weekly
In the seventh installment of his Top Secret Recipes series, the king of "clone cuisine" offers homecooks the chance to recreate almost 100 convenience foods, from the sandwiches and sauces traditionally found on fast food menus to the cookies and candy bars available ready-made on supermarket shelves. For people who prefer their food to bear trademarks, Wilbur's book is a gold mine of information: divulged here are the building blocks of KFC Extra Crispy Chicken, Drake's Devil Dogs, French's Classic Yellow Mustard, Girl Scout Cookies Thin Mints and Kraft Thousand Island Dressing. Wilbur provides a little history along with his hints, too: before imparting the secret to Boston Market Meatloaf (complete, as most recipes are, with a very official-looking diagram of the dish), he briefly traces the company's shifting fortunes (quick expansion and a name change had the company filing for bankruptcy in 1998; McDonald's later purchased the chain and made it profitable again). Why labor over a burger that can be cheaply purchased virtually anywhere, some readers will wonder, and why hand-produce a candy bar that's already mass-produced? It's best not to ponder such obvious questions, and better just to enjoy this book for what it is: an oddball project with a few solid recipes for treats like snickerdoodles and stuffing, and a lot of kitsch appeal.

Fun read, good eats This is definitely a fun read. The recipes are easy to read with amusing "schematics" to accompany some concoctions. I highly recommend it.
