Editorial Reviews

"Barber's book is a masterpiece of reverse engineering. She turns the highly processed, extruded, and corn-syrupy foods of our youth into snacks easily prepared in a home kitchen and almost entirely free of strange additives. (The most chemically-laced product featured in the book is dehydrated cheese powder—yes, the same neon powder you'll find in Kraft boxes.) Even if the finished snacks have a handmade look to them, the flavors are exactly what we remember."—SeriousEats.com


"Casey Barber makes a herculean effort in each recipe to mimic the exact flavors and textures that we love so dearly...if you like a good kitchen project, this book is full of them." —TheKitchn.com
