Dirty food is the dining equivalent of sticking your finger up at the world, a wolf whistle and a flash of bare bottom from the back of a passing bus combined with a Rolls Royce veneer. It is the best worst food you will ever eat. Ribs, burgers, and fried chicken, pimped and preened to filthy perfection, have been reclaimed as the food of the gods. With this book of daring recipes, you can create gourmet versions of all your guiltiest gastronomic pleasures in the comfort of your own home. Learn how to make fabulously Sassy Sandwiches such as the Lobster Corndog. Turn up the heat with some Smokin' BBQ - try the Pulled Pork Potato Skins. Treat your friends and family with something from the Guilty Pleasures Griddle. The Honey Fried Chicken and Red Velvet Waffles are perfect for sharing on a lazy Sunday morning. Have fun with your all-time Take-Out Favourites - the Champagne Lemon Chicken is perfect for a home movie night.
