XXL 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'. 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 spoonful of fried apple pie and double cream.
