This is a short, fun book. I have read other books by these authors and I enjoy the humor. Although this book does include several recipes, many are incorporated into a short humorous story about how the recipe was created, and there is a philosophy involved, mostly that you can have good food without being a slave in the kitchen. Who should read this book? I can't answer this better than the authors on page 1: "The Phony Gourmet is anyone who loves to eat delicious food but doesn't have the time or inclination to spend a major part of his or her life in the kitchen."
A collection of easy-to-prepare recipes for delicious meals that anyone can whip up, whether you're a new cook intimidated by fancy-schmancy million-ingredient recipes or you're just too pooped to slav in the kitchen tonight. The SLOB (Spontaneous, Lighthearted, Optimistic, & Beloved) Sisters, Pam Young and Peggy Jones provide such painless recipes as Fraudulent Lasagna, All-Purpose Rip-Off Sauces, Aunt Peg's Five-Bean Summit Meeting, & Pam's Incredible Croutons. As a Phony Gourmet, you'll learn to use top-secret, convenience-food ingredients that will save you work without sacrificing taste.
Hilarious! You will be ROFLOL!
