Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Why would anyone want to re-create fast-food recipes at home? Fast food is, after all, convenient, not healthy. Wilbur, a top-selling QVC cookbook author, returns with this compilation of 150 new recipes from chains like Bennigan's, Applebee's, Denny's, and Olive Garden. Through "reverse-engineering," home cooks will be able to make their favorite dishes, inexpensively, from scratch and at a fraction of the cost. Arranged by restaurant dish (Roadhouse Grill Baby Back Ribs, T.G.I. Friday's Broccoli Cheese Soup), the recipes can quickly be located with ease. These "top secret" dishes are rendered in blueprint style and commence with the restaurant's menu description. Wilbur's book is made up primarily of dishes known to clog the arteries, but he delivers the latest in what will surely please a nation wrapped up in fast food. Recommended for medium and large collections.-Steven G. Fullwood, Schomburg Ctr. Lib., New York Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
