Thanks to 'merlin1' on MSE. Thought I would share this if no one has already. I have ordered mine today.

Looks like a really good book showing you how to cook your favorite take away food at home with full details of ingredients & cooking methods.


The Takeaway Secret is a book which will enable readers to cook their own tasty takeaway food at home. After over 5 years of research and investigation, the secret ingredients and cooking techniques used by takeaway and fast food restaurants can now finally be revealed. In today's increasingly health conscious and now financially cautious world, there's never been a better time to learn the secrets of cooking your own takeaway food at home. From now on, the takeaway menu will become an inspiration to cook, not an expensive option for dinner.

Some of the recipes which can now be faithfully recreated at home include Lamb Donner and Chicken Kebabs, Chicken and Vegetable Pakora, Szechuan Chicken, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chicken Wings, Spare Ribs, Triple-Decker Burgers, Chicken Burgers, Spiced Onions, Kebab Sauces, Sub Rolls, Wraps and many more. Many recipe books call for an extensive and expensive list of ingredients, often interesting to read but impractical for everyday cooking. The Takeaway Secret will stand out as the modern cookbook, ideal for a generation of people who desire delicious food, delivered quickly without the need to slave over a hot stove for hours on end. The recipes included make it possible for home cooks, both novice and professional, to recreate their favourite takeaway and fast food restaurant dishes in their own kitchen.

It's a fantastic book, I've got it and contribute to the MSE thread.

If you like your takeaways and want to replicate the recipes, this book is for you.

The Egg Mcmuffin and the Lamb kebab are especially delicious.

For about the same price as a food mag you get a great book with very useful recipes in.

I've also got this book and it is awesome. Made Lamb Tikka and nan bread last week and it was better than going to the takeaways!

Thankyou, voted hot and purchased it. Really looking forward to receiving it.

Amazon says : "Usually dispatched within 5 to 10 days."
BUT price-matched on Play and "In stock | Usually dispatched within 24 hours" so possibly faster.

Great book and great recipes I use it all the time! It's scary how much these recipes taste Luke the real thing! Once you get this you will use it time and time again

I've got this and it's a fantastic book. The pakora recipes are worth the money alone.
#21
Really good book! The doner kebab is awesome!!
#22
I bought this for £6 direct from the author, as he posts on a website that I post on.

My wife has tried a few recipes and we have both being really impressed with the results.

Have a read at what Kenny (author) has had to overcome in term's of illness and when you consider he has managed to get a book published, then this is a great achievement.

The chicken burger recipe is amazing, best book I've brought along with the secret to Indian Restaurant food by Kris Dillon

I ordered this book this morning but reading through the recipes has made me want takeaway :D
If only I had seen this yesterday - I have got Tesco coming today :(
#27
Looks like a good filler item :p
#28
Do these recipies use stuff that is easily obtainable? I bought the chinese secrets one but i was saying to use amongst other things MSG, which is a bit hard from Tescos.
Might try a few of the recipes from the amazon link first.
#29
Got the onion granules from Tesco and Garlic Salt from Lidl, required for a lot of the recipes.
#30
After using Amazon's look inside earlier and glancing at recipes for (I think) Chinese Steak, Chip shop fish, burger, burger chain fish sandwich, tarka dhal ... Amazon now won't let me see anything other than the opening few pages and the index!!
I'll hev to wait for my copy from Play
#31
Just ordered mine as I have been reading the amazon reviews on this and people say the Kebab is amazing and if its cheaper to make the book alone is cheaper than a Take-Away Kebab from around here!
#32
Damn i should of taken screen grabs before Amazon caught on and blocked it.

If you happen to post on a certain Celtic website, you could ask the author to post you one out but I think he still charges £6 but you could get a signed copy X)
