"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Basic Directions: Heat oven to 350. Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with foil; spray with no-stick cooking spray. Make up a package of fudge brownie mix, following directions for either cakelike or fudge brownies, making our additions or changes. Bake as package or recipe directs.
