“I got this book for Christmas when I was nine years old. The recipes were laid out with pictures of what to do step by step. It was so simple, I could do it, no problem! The peanut butter pudding—Jell-O instant chocolate pudding with peanut butter mixed into it—was my favorite and first recipe. I’d pour it into my mom’s fancy green-glass pudding cups, let it set, and put Cool Whip on top. It was awesome.” — Chef Terence Feury of Fork in Philadelphia providing what is easily our favorite entry in the ’Saveur 100: Chef’s Edition,’ online today.
