“Update: This recipe was created by Todd Wilbur for his cookbook "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" (Penguin Random House 1997). It looked like many of the other recipes across the web so I thought I would give it a try. I have uploaded here for tracking reasons and will update after I make it this week.”
