Recipes Every Man Should Know includes recipes that are straightforward, achievable, and flavorful enough to make wonderful impressions that lead to memorable moments. The book begins with the basics, a list of Kitchen Tools, broken down categorically by order of preparation, including corresponding sketch-like pictures, and a list of cooking terms. The list of cooking terms is not intimidating, as it only includes 17 basics that, once mastered, will take any man-cook far in his endeavors.
Chapter 1 starts off with a jolt, as before delving into the hearty breakfast offerings, it grabs one's attention by offering three steps to making a good cup of coffee. While running out in the wee hours and grabbing a cup for your lady may be okay once in a while, filling the home with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, followed by hand delivery, offers a much more in-depth reason for a lady to swoon.Read more ›
If your taste buds have been quieted by mundane recipes, your mouth a little disinterested from so-so meals, try any one of these recipes and your palate will be brought back to mouthwatering life.
Need a metric conversion, a tip or two about choosing the proper utensils for your kitchen, or how about the pin-point temperature for that perfect medium rare steak -- yep, it's all inclusive.
The guides, the recipes, and charm of this little black book is worthy of adding to your collection with a five star plus rating and for all the men who will buy or receive this book as a present, there will be so much to savor and for the rest of us -- expand that library. Terry
