Decoding the Colonel

It’s just 11 herbs and spices, but the secret recipe of Colonel Harland Sanders — the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken — has been one of America’s biggest mysteries since the chicken chain’s first restaurant opened in 1952.

Well, 57 years later, Ron Douglas thinks he has cracked the code. It’s one of the 200 recipes in his new cookbook, America’s Most Wanted Recipes. He also uncovers some of the most successful dishes from the hallowed kitchens of Red Lobster, the Cheesecake Factory and the Olive Garden.
