18 popular foods you should never make at home

No matter how much pleasure one derives from cooking however, some dishes are best left to the professionals. That’s not to say you don’t possess the skills and prowess to successfully pull off any of these recipes, not at all. Some things simply aren’t worth the trouble. Some leave you dealing with vats of hot oil — which are such a pain to dispose of — some take hours and hours of careful prep, and some are so finicky and temperamental that, unless you are a seasoned veteran master chef, they might garner very little pleasure and even end in total disaster. Rather than tempt fate, it might be easier to find a local restaurant instead of making any of these dishes at home (though we have included recipes for some of them, just in case you want to live life on the edge, which we encourage). Read on to discover 18 popular foods you should never make at home. (This story originally appeared on The Daily Meal.)
