  1. 5 out of 5 stars – An amazing, FUN COOKBOOK, too bad it’s out of print
    ByPistols Fanon October 28, 2008
    My mother bought me this cookbook about 20 years ago, and I can tell you this is one of the greatest cookbooks I have ever owned, and certainly the FUNNEST! In this wonderful cookbook you will find all of the “Secret Sauces” to your favorite hamburger joints (some of them long out of business, but the taste can live on!), such as “Burger Chef’s” secret sauce, how to make a “Big Chef”, How to make a “Super Chef”, how to make chicken that tastes exactly like KFC, Popeyes, or CHURCH’S fried chicken. This is one of the finest collections of recipes that you’ll ever come across, so don’t hesitate, don’t even think about it, you will cherish this book forever. My copy is in great shape still, and I use it all the time, and on the internet when someone talks about a recipe from some restaurant chain they used to go to years ago and asks for the recipe, I am OFTEN able to look it up and post it for them!!!!!!! Good luck in tracking this one down though!
