Writing in his signature easy-going and entertaining, yet authoritative, voice—which makes every recipe and technique lesson fun instead of intimidating—Raichlen offers simple, but ingenious tips and techniques that will make dishes jump off the plate with flavor.
MAN MADE MEALS comes complete with more than 300 mouth-watering recipes ranging from breakfast to dessert, from condiments to killer cocktails! Each recipe has a quick-reference, four-part sidebar that includes: Shop (information about ingredients), Gear (what you’ll need), What Else (tips), and Time (how much time it should take) for quick and easy prep. Lavish, full-color photos show step-by-step how to master the basics like flipping an omelet, carving a turkey, cracking a lobster, butterflying a pork loin, and more, plus finished dishes in all their manly glory.
Raichlen also interviewed accomplished, admired, and frankly cool “Food Dudes” for their advice on favorite foods, techniques, and cooking philosophies. When Francis Mallmann, Thomas Keller, Nathan Myhrvold, José Andrés, Michael Pollan, Stanley Tucci, Andrew Zimmern, Mark Bittman, Dale DeGroff, and other marquee food dudes speak, guys will definitely want to listen. Whether you’re single or married, in college or retired, on a budget or on the board of directors, you have the right, need, and desire to eat well and show off doing it! MAN MADE MEALS is the essential guide for any man who wants to get into the kitchen, cook, and eat well for the rest of his life.
