Gourmet Assembly for the Lazy

Like to eat gourmet food but too lazy to cook? In a panic because the in-laws are coming and you haven’t prepared anything to eat? With the magic of a well-equipped kitchen and some persistence, you can turn your next meal into something worthy of gracing the tables of a top-class restaurant! Today’s post is brought to you courtesy of my dearest sister, who brought this website to my attention, hoping to inspire me to higher heights of gourmet cooking.

Fancy Fast Food is a website that adds glitz and glamour to fast food, allowing mere plebeians to enjoy the look of gourmet food on their plates at the price of what you can get at the local burger joint! Best of all, most of the cooking is already done since the ingredients are already pre-cooked and no new ingredients are needed.



Most of the recipes are fairly easy to follow including a list of ingredients, step-by-step instructions and pictures of the food in each step. To minimise your expenditure and maximise savings, the ingredients lists also include possible “value meals” or “combos” that the food can purchased in.

The only drawback to using Fancy Fast Food is that a number of the ingredients such as White Castle Burgers or Baconators from Wendy’s can only be purchased in America. However, substitutions from more universal fast food franchises KFC or McDonalds seem to work just as well. I’ve managed to prepare the Wendy’s Baconator Combo (pictured above) just as well with a McDonald’s Double Bacon Cheeseburger meal, though the cheeseburger meal was a little smaller.

For the creative chef in you, the website also accepts submissions in the form of recipes – provided before and after pictures are taken, along with step-by-step pictures.

Fancy Fast Food is available at While the food in Fancy Fast Food has the texture, look and feel of gourmet cooking, making it look better doesn’t change the taste or the nutritional content! The food will still contains the same fat, salt and calorie content as regular fast food and will still taste the same!
