Cooking & Entertaining

XXL: Epic Food, Street Eats & Cult Dishes from Around the World

This book compiles the ultimate, biggest, meatiest, most delicious recipes for the manliest of appetites from around the globe. Dude food never tasted so great.

Thick N’ Juicy is a cookbook big on size and flavor and—unashamedly—calories too. This book is not a raw/vegan/gluten-free tome. This is not a book for followers of a 5:2 eating plan—and look away if you’re planning a detox anytime soon. However, this is the perfect book for those who enjoy the deeply satisfying first bite of a juicy cheeseburger, the crunch of Korean fried chicken or a guilt-free spoonful of fried apple pie and double cream. Food is meant to be enjoyed!

Avid traveler Billy Law has traversed the globe collecting his—and he hopes your—favorite comfort recipes from places as diverse as Saigon, San Francisco, London, L.A., Tokyo, and Mexico City. Join him on this over-the-top food adventure.

Chapters cover snacks, burgers, mains, desserts, and drinks. The 70 XXL-tastic recipes include fried cheese balls, poutine, mega-nachos, donut burgers, pimped-up lobster rolls, a simple turducken, a meatball pizza bowl, beer-and-chili peanut brittle, and a five-tier pavlova. These are not recipes for the faint-hearted.
