A Man and His Panby Boswell, Susan Wyler (With), Susan Wyler
For bachelors, or fathers making breakfast for their kids, the pan allows them to display competence as well as agility and dexterity. Whatever the reason, the pleasure of pan cooking is not unlike a passion for cutting the grass: in both cases the results are immediate and tangible. Each recipe will include headnotes for problem solving. While "A Man and His Pan" is Not cooking for real men. it Is real cooking for men. It anticipates real problems that often come up but that other cookbooks never seem to address. For example, portions don't have to be man-sized, but they should at least be realistic. In addition to headnotes, sidebars will be included that address such things as: How to tell when your pan is hot enough; How to crack an egg with one hand; and The Benihana lemon drizzle trick.
There's something about a man and cleaning up: he's not very good at it. This is where the importance of the nonstick surface comes in. Once you've cooked in a nonstick pan, you can never go back to a more traditional surface. It's almost magical! In addition, the newer nonstick surfaces are much more durable and longer lasting. There are also obvious health benefits to nonstick pans because little or no oil is needed, but for a man and his pan this is usually a secondary consideration.
