Additional Details

Description: Caramel Knowledge is a hilarious, down-to-earth and off-the-wall collection of the food writing of Al Sicherman, full of quirky, delicious recipes and wonderful, off-beat observations on the peculiar state of American food. Caramel Knowledge champions the rather radical philosophy that cooking and eating should be great fun. Here, at last, is a book that consistently avoids the trendy in favor of the tasty (and, occasionally, the tacky). In these pages, and perhaps nowhere else, you will find recipes for  

  • Al's Friend's Mom's Dumplings Amusing Green Dessert Choclava
  • Chuck 'n' Cluck
  • Cold SPAM Mousse
  • Cornbread-topped Bean and Bratwurst Bake
  • Drugstore Hamburgers Fried Ice Cream
  • Frozen Chocolate -Mint Cheesecake Mousse Stuff
  • Haunted Parker House Rolls Hollow Weenies
  • Impossible Pumpkin Pie
  • Krazy Kake
  • Macaroni and Cheese au Gratin Mockaguole
  • Orange You Glad We Have Turkey? Sauerkraut Fudge Cake
  • Spirals of Starch
  • Vanilla Mock Crab Salad

and more than a hundred other odd but extremely edible dishes. And all of these recipes are surrounded by scads of culinary and other anecdotes, musings and trivia. Caramel Knowledge is a funny, charming, informative and thoroughly addictive look at food that will delight anyone who eats.
