The Unhealthiest Cookbooks Of 2012
Usually, people drool over the recipes doled out in cookbooks, be it star chefs like Jamie Oliver and Rachael Ray, or relatively unknown authors. But have you ever given it a thought whether the cookbook is good or bad for you? Well, there is a group of people who are interested in telling you what some of the worst cookbooks of this year are. The group is the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), which are often called vegan propagandists too. Here is what they have to say:
‘The Unofficial Downton Abbey’
Written by Emily Ansara Baines, this cookbook contains recipes like Squab with Fig foie Gras, Saxe-Coburg Soup, and Lobster Thermidor. Now, the vegan lobby has an issue with the fact that these recipes call for ingredients like Foie Gras (horror of horrors), heavy cream, whole milk, cheese, and butter, which is against the tenets of preserving animal lives.
‘Emeril's Kicked-Up Sandwiches’
Emeril Lagasse is a chef and a restaurateur and he talks about sandwiches of monstrous proportions in his book. That is why, the PCRM report calls this book one of the top 5 worst cookbooks of the year. In fact, one of his sandwiches, “Monte Cristo” has been named a “Nutritional Shocker” by the PCRM.
‘My Year in Meals’
The PCRM guys blast Rachael Ray, author of this book, for having double standards in her cooking. Ray was attacked for promoting healthy school lunches when out but eating dishes like Hearty Mac & Cheese with Squash and Sausage, when at home.
‘Fifty Shades of Chicken’
Author F.L. Fowler comes under attack for the “cholesterol-laden chicken recipes” in what is being called “a parody in a cookbook.”
‘Southern Living The Official SEC Tailgating Cookbook’
Southern comfort food may be the end of the road for some, for the Tailgaters, who want you to start your day with a Sausage-Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole, the Vegans are seething with fury because of the excessive calories that the cookbook comes loaded with.
