The bestselling author of six previous Top Secret books, Wilbur's trademark blueprint drawings and simple recipes make it easy to recreate your favorite brand names at home. Over the years, this former television investigative reporter has resorted to spy tactics, carted home leftovers, and recruited family and friends to taste-test recipes.

- Auntie Anne's Pretzels
- KFC Cole Slaw

Armed with his domestic detective tips, Wilbur's newest book gives readers the skinny on what makes Newman's Own Creamy Caesar Dressing stay so creamy, and what makes KFC's Extra Crispy Chicken so darn good. Served up with Wilbur's "special sauce" of spunk and wit, Even More Top Secret Recipes is an essential cookbook for anyone who wants to duplicate these and other treasured recipes of American culture.
