The Worst, Unhealthiest Cookbooks of 2010

New, 12 comments

So, what are those merry vegan propagandists, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, up to these days? Making end-of-year cookbook listicles just like everyone else, naturally. The only difference is, their list is comprised of the "worst" cookbooks, or cookbooks from celebrities that contain the "least healthy recipes." Or evil meat-eating, milk-chugging, cheese-loving recipes. Your pick.

On their attention-grabbing shitlist you will find gluttonous titles from Trisha Yearwood (that includes "a dish that calls for eight large eggs, a pound of bacon, a pound of sausage, cheese tortellini, cheddar cheese, tater tots, and butter"), a cookbook from Gordon Ramsay, and Ina Garten's latest, Barefoot Contessa: How Easy is That?.

Also included: the Top Chef cookbook because it has a recipe for deep-fried bacon doughnuts, and The Primal Blueprint Cookbook that is so terrible because it has "an entire section of cholesterol-laden recipes for offal - entrails and internal organs." The full list, below:
