Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Nostalgic for a time when kitchen counters had a container marked "grease" right next to "flour" and "sugar," author and blogger Graham (Keep Chewing Till It Stops Kicking) offers up a rambling, tongue-in-cheek, plaque-in-artery collection of recipes and essays for those dedicated to the "Art of Lard." Graham delights in slaughtering sacred cows with his acerbic, at times wildly inappropriate humor, but also gets a terrific amount of glee from simple bacon grease, a key ingredient in ribs, chicken fried steak, hash browns and even popcorn. Predictably dense takes on macaroni and cheese, burgers and fries dominate, though more exotic fare like Turducken and Rotis with Goat Curry are also detailed. Graham's glib instructions can frustrate; for fatty (but incredibly flavorful) twice-baked fries, "you get your fat, and you put it in a big pot, and you put it in the oven at 250 for like a day. Then you throw out the lumps that remain," before you add potatoes for frying. Most of his dishes, however, fall within the capabilities of kitchen novices, and he peppers sound advice throughout on everything from the proper use of ham hocks to the care of cast iron skillets. Unfortunately, his wildly uneven tone and pointless digressions kill any sense of momentum, making this a comedic smorgasbord best consumed in moderation.

It is definitely the funniest book I've read in years; it had me laughing out loud, in public.

The evilest cookbook I've seen... even worse than Kill it and Grill it. Not bad as in bad food but bad as in addictingly good food that will cause your vegan freinds to suicide. Heck, the bacon grease even gets into the biscuits and the veggies...(I think there is a veggie somewhere in here). Seriously, this is one heck of a book that makes recipes the way Grandma did: does it taste good and will it put meat on your bones. The answer to both is yes.
So far we have tried six recipes and they are all keepers. Well, after the author told us about the flour. The fudge wasn't bad but the brownies are "worth a walk." Normally, I'd consider a cookbook a keeper for 2 recipes and we are well past that now.
Add to outrageous good but fattening recipes, a sick twisted humor that somehow avoided the political correctness virus and you have a cookbook that almost promises hours of entertainment when given to your vegan peace-nik co-workers.

Just got it a couple of days ago, and I've been chuckling ever since. The author is apparently half-insane, but that's okay, as his insanity seems to stem from the extreme oppression that the food police so delight in inflicting on ordinary mortals.

This book may be offensive to the joyless and easily offended, but, hey, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. That is also okay, as the joyless and easily offended probably prefer bean sprouts and tofu anyway.

I found his chapter on barbeque, in particular, very useful. Pay strict attention to his dissertation on cast iron skillets. I believe there may be a typo in the discussion on red-eye gravy. IMHO, red-eye gravy needs to be made with coffee, not water. Sure, you can make ham gravy with water, but then it's just gravy, not red-eye. Your mileage may vary.

If you enjoy life, you will enjoy this book and should buy it for yourself. If your life is plagued by professional killjoys, buy it as a gift for them just to be annoying. Either way, you win!

If you don't enjoy life - well, go forth, eat your raw carrots in peace, and let history forget you were ever our countryman.

"WARNING!!! THIS BOOK IS A CHOKING HAZARD!! DO NOT READ WHILE EATING. It is hilarious. And the recipes, should I ever get around to trying them, look like the greatest thing since Mom's. (or mine)".

I was one of those privileged to proofread this book before it went to print and my wife has not yet forgiven me for the night of sleep I deprived her while I convulsed and cackled with laughter, unable to put this down.
Remember the classic "The Joy of Cooking"? Well, the diet police have sucked the life and joy out of food and "joy" is not the first word that comes to mind anymore. We don't eat just for nutrition or else we'd reduce the process to eating bland squares of "processed food". No, as a species, we have the of a working tongue with which to savor really great food. Steve gives easy-to-read and easy-to-make recipes and infuses his recipes with an unapologetic male attitude.
More than a cookbook, but more practical than just humor, you'll probably need to replace your grease-stained copy annually. Eat What You Want and Die Like A Man will be re-read, quoted and used regularly.
Buy it, read it, and after you catch your breath and wake up from a delicious food coma, you will be buying copies for friends and family.

I wrote this horrible book. Amazon took down the reviews my readers were kind enough to post, so I'm starting over.
This is a collection of humor essays, but each one features a really fantastic and unhealthy recipe, like chicken-fried ribeye on a Frisbee-sized biscuit with cream gravy. It also contains the world's most decadent brownie recipe (540 calories each).
It also has recipes for things like coconut flan, chocolate flan, and yeast-raised doughnuts fried in lard.
I hope you enjoy it.
Oh--the brownie recipe is missing the words "1 cup all-purpose flour." So that explains why you keep getting fudge.

Steve Graham has outdone himself with this book. It is definitely the funniest book I've read in years; it had me laughing out loud, in public. Definitely don't ruin it by reading while eating... spraying food is really not pleasant.
Graham takes off anything approaching a PC-glove and just rips lose. When he comes across a sacred cow, he simply grills it.
The recipies are terrific. There are plenty of them--even more on his weblog "Hog on Ice"--and they all pretty much work as advertised. Your cardiologist won't love them, but your organ bank just might.

It's a cookbook.
It's a collection of essays about food.
It's a death sentence.
If you buy this book and start cooking the recipes, be prepared. See your doctor ahead of time, and schedule a full battery of tests. If you have a heart condition, this will exacerbate the problem. Look into better health insurance before trying the chicken-fried steak recipe.
At least you'll die happy. Covered with gravy and sour cream, but happy.

This book had me laughing out loud on the first page of the Foreword, and kept me laughing throughout. Graham writes well - and writes funny. Indeed, I did not put down the book (despite fits of chuckling) until I finished the whole thing in one sitting. Sometimes I wish I wasn't such a speed-reader.
Then I went and made the chili.
The recipes are to die for. Literally. Someone please call 911 for me....
