The Five Worst Cookbooks of 2010
How to Cook Like a Top Chef
By the creators of Top Chef
The reality show Top Chef has a ruthless elimination round for contestants. Unfortunately, many of their unhealthy recipes still found their way into the program’s cookbook. Laurine’s Bacon Donuts are deep-fried and packed with processed meat, which has been linked to increased risk of colon cancer. Hubert Keller’s Mac and Cheese is loaded with fatty dairy products: butter, heavy cream, half-and-half, and Swiss cheese. As if that’s not enough, the recipe also calls for cholesterol-packed egg yolks and 1 pound of shrimp.
