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!
Perfect for an anonymous office party Christmas gift. Authors go by the name SLOB sisters (spontaneous, lighthearted,optimistic, and beloved.)
