      Requires a baked potato. Might be a good recipe to make if there are leftover potatoes.

      I cannot believe this faux crepe recipe actually worked!

      We loved it - great mix of sweet, salty, spicy; good flavors and textures.

    • britt on October 14, 2010

      Some bites this was good, some bites not so much. The flavors were intense, and I am not sure how well they melded. Also, the salad was sweet.

Publishers Text

"Pancakes are a luxury like smoking marijuana or having sex. That's why I came up with the names Ho Cakes and Slutty Cakes. These are extra decadent but in a way every pancake is a Ho Cake." Thus speaks Kenny Shopsin legendary (and legendarily eccentric, ill-tempered and lovable) chef and owner of the Greenwich Village restaurant (and institution) Shopsin's which has been in existence since 1971.

Kenny has finally put together his 900-plus-item menu and his unique philosophy - imagine Elizabeth David crossed with Richard Pryor - to create Eat Me the most profound and profane cookbook you'll ever read. His rants - on everything from how the customer is not always right to the art of griddling; from how to run a small, ethical and humane business to how we all should learn to cook in a Goodnight Moon world where everything you need is already in your own home and head - will leave you stunned or laughing or hungry. Or all of the above.

With more than 120 recipes including such perfect comfort foods as High School Hot Turkey Sandwiches, Cuban Bean Polenta Melt and Cornmeal-Fried Green Tomatoes with Comeback Sauce, plus the best soups, egg dishes and hamburgers you've ever eaten, Eat Me is White Trash Cooking for the twenty-first century as unforgettable and mind-boggling as its author.
