America's Most Wanted Recipes takes a simple precept, that people love mass produced corporate formula food, and exploits it. You gotta give credit to author Ron Douglas who has been profiting off our shackles to the chains through his website RecipeSecrets.net since 2003.
His previous published works contain copycat recipes for everything from Red Lobster's tartar sauce and Taco Bell's hot sauce to Ikea's swedish meatballs and Cracker Barrel's macaroni and cheese.
The former JP Morgan finance manager's newest book breaks down formulas
for the approximated recipes of 57 of America's most popular chain eateries, many of which surely have outposts in South Florida. According to Newsday.com Ron Douglas claims to have finally cracked the code to KFC's original recipe fried chicken.
The secret of his success? His website's forum of over 45,000 members telling him exactly what the people want.
