"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 favorite takeaway and fast food restaurant dishes in their own kitchen.

Kindle version here £2.09 http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Takeaway-Secret-ebook/dp/B004LWZLU2/ref=kinw_dp_ke?ie=UTF8&m=A3TVV12T0I6NSM

This has been posted before and I have just tried the kebab one and it was damn good, so thought others should know it's in stock at play, at time of posting. Seems a bargain for £2.99 delivered.
Even the Mrs had some and she wouldn't eat a kebab from the usual place.
Can't wait to try the Mcdonalds ones.:)

Cheers!

Yeah, i got this book. Good book but am i a bit sad to say it is a shame that it does not have pictures in it?? Pictures , i find , are a good motivating force to make me make stuff, even though mine rarely looks like the pictures.

I didn't want to add the amazon link as it's out of stock there. I don't know if they honour that price when it comes back in stock?

Call me old fashioned but I like having the books. Also brilliant as presents for your friends. Giving them a link doesn't have quite the same effect.

Isnt the point of fast food or takeaway food the fact that you can do it with minimal effort?

Why make substandard versions of food when you could do the proper thing with the same effort?

Curry secret a good book but too much hassle, and it makes your house smell of onions for months

The point being not the book, because that's only a very basic view of doing a decent job, there's far more info on the site.

The "proper thing" isn't what most British people want to eat, in fact I would go as far to say "proper" Indian food is simple enough to make, techniques are very easy and the food is "OK" at best although it's very easy to get the hang of, just pretty ordinary!

It's not Indian food they want, it's the taste the stuff from the restaurant or takeaway has, remember we weren't brought up on traditional Indian food, we got to like British Indian restaurant food, it's very different, I know it's far from authentic, but it's what most British people learned to like

Similarly, it's not real Italian pizza they want either, it's the Anglo-Americanised version they had when growing up... not a lot like that from Palermo or Naples!

It is not easy to make at all, far from it. The mix of spices are passed down from generation to generation and are extremely difficult to get right. If you ever eat a curry dish or rice at a South Asian function or from a family home, no two taste alike.

My experience of Asian domestic cooking is exactly the same as British domestic cooking, there are those who can and those who can't!
