Praise for Todd Wilbur’s #1 bestselling Top Secret Recipes series

“[Wilbur’s] problem isn’t that the recipes he’s devised aren’t good enough, it’s that they’re too good.”—Entertainment Weekly
“There is something magically compelling about the idea of making such foods at home…The allure is undeniable, and [the books are] stuffed with tidbits and lore you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. These probably come as close as you can get to the original recipes.”—Boston Herald
“This is the cookbook to satisfy all your cravings.”—Juli Huss, author of The Faux Gourmet
“The recipes are easy to follow and… by preparing your own versions of restaurant meals you will almost always save money.”—Arizona Daily Star
“[Wilbur’s] recipes use everyday supermarket ingredients to bring brand-name foods to the home kitchen. Perhaps not surprisingly, his recipes are not complex. If anything, they reflect how easy home cooking can be.”—Star Tribune (Minneapolis–St. Paul)
“The assignment: Find out how to make the tasty Jack Daniels Grill Sauce used by T.G.I. Friday’s restaurants. The client: Oprah Winfrey. The gumshoe: Todd Wilbur. Mission Impossible for even the most savvy food expert. But not so for Todd Wilbur, a crackerjack culinary sleuth.”—Pocono Record
“Many of [Wilbur’s] dishy imitations come, like a box of Cracker Jacks, with a surprise inside.”—Mademoiselle
