Bake It Like a Man: A Real Man's Cookbook

Overview

Real men aren't interested in low-fat recipes and quick-and-easy meals. They never make jam or hors d'oeuvres, and especially not angel food cake. According to author David Bowers, cooking for the real man is an adventure. Making cheese at home and brewing beer in the garage may take weeks or months, but time isn't important. Men need to cook for an audience, so the recipes for paella, gumbo, and jambalaya serve 10 hungry guys. Men aren't afraid of fat — Scotch Eggs, Fish and Chips, Fried Cheese, and Eggplant ...

Overview

Real men aren't interested in low-fat recipes and quick-and-easy meals. They never make jam or hors d'oeuvres, and especially not angel food cake. According to author David Bowers, cooking for the real man is an adventure. Making cheese at home and brewing beer in the garage may take weeks or months, but time isn't important. Men need to cook for an audience, so the recipes for paella, gumbo, and jambalaya serve 10 hungry guys. Men aren't afraid of fat — Scotch Eggs, Fish and Chips, Fried Cheese, and Eggplant Parmesan are just a few artery-clogging favorites you'll find here. Potatoes are the real man's vegetable of choice — French fried, mashed, or roasted. Grilling offers the best of all worlds — smoke, fire, big food, hours of marination. The recipes in each chapter start off simple, like Ginger Beer, prepared in one day, then build up to a manly IPA Bitter that takes weeks but is sure to impress.

Bake It Like A Man is a real cookbook for real men, but author David Bowers doesn't take himself too seriously. Sidebars throughout the book poke fun at topics like "Gadgets and Appliances Men Hate," or "A Few Fats I Love." As fun to read as it is to cook from, Bake It Like A Man is the perfect gift for the "real man" in every woman's life.

About the Authors:

 David Bowers, an artist and illustrator, worked for a number of years in restaurants in London, Montreal, and New York, and ran his own restaurant in Dublin. Originally from Ireland, he now lives in New York.         

Sharon Bowers is a food writer and editor and author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Chicken and The Lazy Way to Cook Your Meals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Perhaps the approach of Father's Day explains the simultaneous appearance of three "men's" cookbooks. Its catchy title notwithstanding, Boswell's A Man and His Pan is essentially an eclectic collection of favorite recipes from a man who likes to cook, whether for his family (there's a separate chapter on cooking for kids) or for guests. Boswell is coauthor of The Best Fryer Cookbook Ever (HarperCollins, 1998) and the packager of the "365 Ways To Cook" series. Here the gimmick, such as it is, is that all the recipes, from Pepper-Crusted Steak Flamb ed in Whisky to Asian-Flavored Arctic Char, are made in a large nonstick frying pan. Many are quite easy, although they do assume some experience in the kitchen. For larger collections. With his wife, a food writer and editor, Bowers, who has a restaurant background, has written an entertaining but at heart serious cookbook. Despite his tongue-in-cheek macho tone, he conveys a lot of useful information on food and cooking, starting with "Men and Hardware" (kitchen equipment) and moving on to "Men and Flame" (grilling, flamb eing, and "blowtorch cooking"), "Men and Fat" ("They Don't Call It a Fry-Mama"), and "Pommes des Hommes" (vegetables), among other topics. The recipes are tasty and wide-ranging, not confined to hearty "guy food" by any means. Recommended for most collections. Mauer, author of the best-selling Lean and Lovin' It (Chapters, 1996), has always been the family cook, but about ten years ago, he changed his habits, scaled back on fat, and lost 100 pounds. Disdaining diet books that consider half a cup of macaroni and cheese enough for a serving, he's come up with 175 recipes that are relatively low in fat but designed to satisfy hearty appetites. Mauer has a more "down-home" approach than Bowers and a less sophisticated style, but many family cooks, male or female, will find lots of recipes to try here. For most collections.

    Power Tools for the Kitchen

    I bought this book for my dad - a man's man who loves both Craftsman Power tools and cooking. It's now his favorite, go-to cookbook. It's funny - and the food is great. This is a great gift.
