Author Reveals Restaurant Secrets – Is KFC Secret Recipe One of Them?

July 22, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Want to get out and eat at your favorite restaurant, but don’t have the money to spend? No worries, you can now make your favorite dishes at home, thanks to Chef Ron Douglas.

Douglas, a former JPMorgan financial manager, originally accepted his wife’s challenge of figuring out the 11 herbs and spices in the KFC secret recipe as a game. It soon became a passion, and before long he turned it into a career.

He claims to have decoded the recipe, though he admits that it might not be perfect.

“The exact recipe has never been released, but mine comes really, really close. I kept trying, and with the help of the online community, we figured out a recipe that’s so good most people can’t tell the difference.”

In fact, he tried six times before he felt he had gotten it right.

Now the published author of his own cookbook, and the owner of the popular website Recipe Secrets, Douglas is on a mission to deconstruct as many restaurant dishes as he can.

“The recipes are my own…I use the names as a reference point so people know what they’re eating,” he said. “I’m pretty sure I’m not taking away business from these big chains,” he was quoted as saying by MSNBC.

So far, Douglas has release recipes for Applebee’s, Cheesecake Factory, and Macaroni Grill, among many others.

His book, America’s Most Wanted Recipes (Simon & Schuster, 2009), is on sale now.
