I just read online that some guy thinks he has figured out the Colonel's secret 11 herbs & spices KFC recipe...or at the least it is pretty darn close. The Colonel's recipe is one of the biggest secrets in restaurant history and this guy, after about 6 attempts, thinks he has figured out the mixture of spices. And will he be sharing his recipe, of course. A book that was released earlier this month reveals this and other secret recipes that he has figured out or just plain asked for.
I do have to ask, WHY?
What is the big deal about finding out the recipe, why can't we just let some things be. First, just the idea of the Colonel having a secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices is just part of the legacy of KFC but I guess even more to the point is how many people are actually going to cook fried chicken with this recipe? I guess maybe I am not a "fried chicken" person and therefore IF I am in the mood for it, I will buy it and not make it myself. I know that even if I tried to make this with the real recipe it would never turn out the same as if I just got chicken from KFC, so I will just spend the money and go with the real thing.
Besides if I am going to eat fast food chicken, I prefer Popeye's over KFC anyday.
