there are a number of books from the series above:


My library has them and they are both interesting and entertaining, and mind boggling.

I your library does not have them, suggest them. it you see them in a bookstore (are there still bookstores?) take a look.

Learned a great deal from them re commercial cooking/ commercial (grocery) food.

these books still seem to be coming out.  My library system seems to get them all.


they are attractive to browse through, and you might lean some interesting things about what's in your market and served at various 'Chain' eateries.




Abs and bikini's are optional.


maybe your library system has a few.

I've browsed a few of these in the bookstores, but not really given them the time of day.  They looked a bit too, gimmicky, I think, for me to take them seriously.  Maybe I should take another look?  Can you give some examples of useful information you've picked up out of these?
