Sure, everyone loves a man who can man the grill, but now that Mike Adams has joined forces with original authors Nick Armstrong and Patrick Earvolino for this expanded second edition of Men in Kitchens: A Good Day to Dine Hard, there’s never been a better time for all you men to sharpen your skills inside the kitchen as well.
Take your tailgate game to the next level with Nick’s Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. Whip up a batch of the only salad dressing you’ll ever truly need with Patrick’s Real Deal Vinaigrette. And learn just how easy it is to end a late night on a high note with Michael’s After After Party Breakfast Cups.
That’s just three of the many keepers you’ll find here. There’s also the Kitchen Savvy section, with mano y mano instruction on everything from the skillet to the cutting board.
Ah, imagine what you’ll do with your newfound confidence in the kitchen: Stand side by side with your daughter as you teach her how to fold an omelet and other valuable food skills she’ll remember for the rest of her life. Prepare your wife or your mother an extravagant dinner just because. Surprise that shy first date or wow your longtime girlfriend with your prowess in the…kitchen.
Men in Kitchens is the perfect cookbook for any dad, husband, boyfriend, or brother who wants to make healthy, mouth-watering meals for friends and family. Because no matter where you’re at in life, there’s just one skill you must rely on day in and day out to lead a healthy life—and that’s preparing nutritious food for yourself and the people you love.
So all you men, go get busy in the kitchen. Because if you don’t, we may just have to start working on Men in Bathrooms: A Good Day to Clean Hard.
Thoughts on cooking from real men in kitchens:
“Fostering my own family traditions around food and what food means to us has been a key ingredient to a happy marriage, strong family ties, and a great work ethic. It’s also how I take ownership of my family’s health. Cooking, and cooking healthfully, not only makes me a better provider for my family but also a more useful husband and partner.”
“Was it too much to ask, I thought, that my food not only tasted good but was good for me? So I decided to create my own way of cooking. Something fit for a dude, with simple, hearty, nutritious recipes heavy on flavor and light on hassle.”
“My favorite memories of cooking are populated with my friends and family. The best recipes call for all hands on deck, rolling out ravioli while belting out whatever song teenage girls listen to these days.”
