Tired of all those self-righteous food snobs out there, always getting on your case when you just want to enjoy a nice, all-American fast food meal? Well, get rid of those ugly wrappers and cardboard boxes, because it's time to transform that greasy, processed fare into something out of a fancy five-star restaurant - all without adding any ingredients (except maybe a little organic garnish of course, for that extra touch of irony)!

In this book, you will learn how to take your burgers, hot dogs, burritos, fried chicken, pizza, and other popular fast food items and elevate them to haute cuisine - or at least make them look like they are. Sure they may still be bad for you, but you'll be amazed at how good they can look!

Developed by the creator of the original Fancy Fast Food blog that swept the Internet by colliding fast food chains with the gourmet world, this satirical cookbook not only features never-before-seen recipes, but expands into a complete farce on our beloved food culture - from the suggestive plating of dishes to celebrities who look like Chicken McNuggets. So whether you're a processed seitan-eating vegan or a carnivorous gourmand who loves having geese slaughtered for a plate of foie gras, you'll enjoy this mashup of food and pop culture - and become the fanciest chef this side of the Golden Arches in the process!

"If you thought fast food had to be lowbrow, think again. Not when you can enjoy tapas from White Castle, sushi from Popeye's, or quiche from Burger King."

- Randy James, Time

"Food porn begets fast food porn, which in turn has come to verge on fast food parody..."

- Frank Bruni, The New York Times Week in Review
