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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Then I went and made the chili.
The recipes are to die for. Literally. Someone please call 911 for me....

Fun book with recipes that are actually well designed. His suggestions are clearly from someone down to earth.Published 20 months ago by John T.
This is, first and foremost, a funny book. It's well-written, with each chapter a stand-alone essay with a recipe. Read more
Love the title, and I came close to being able to make the brownies and say it came for the cookbook "Eat what you want and die like a man" which is bound to get a chuckle. Read morePublished on January 15, 2014 by Italics Mine
Certainly a funny read. The devotion to gravy alone is worthy of admiration. It would be improved by having more recipes. It is more of a comedic piece than a cookbook.Published on December 19, 2011 by Jessica M
