It's the book every bachelor should own in their kitchen. It's simple, it's clean, it's manly.
The author is very step-by-step with these recipes, knowing all to well how frustrating some cookbooks can be. Colorful pictures dot the pages, showing you the fruits of your labor if you go through with the recipe. It's all very intuitive for the fledgling chef. This doesn't make the food beginner only, however, as many of the recipes in the last half of the book are a bit more complex.
The recipes come in the style of "Date Night #()" and consistently work their way up from simple to more complex near the end. They are laid out as full course meals, but by no means(And the author goes on to say this) do you need to abide by that. The author suggests you take what he gives you, and make it your own according to the situation. The food is great too, so don't let the word 'simple' muddle up your perception of the quality. It's simple, classic, and delicious.
It is filled with a wonderful mix of gourmet type recipes(nothing too terribly wierd) that are absolutely delicious and far easier to prepare than their name
would indicate. There are not a lot of expensive and difficult to find ingredients and the recipes are so easy to follow that bachelors may even find time
for some flirting, possible even a little foot massage, during prep time.
In addition to some new ideas ( Sauteed chicken w/asparagus, portobello's and tomatoes over spaghetti, or the Pasta Mediterranean),
there are some old favorites with a different slant( Bruschette w/feta cheese and Pan Seared Salmon w/Parmesan cream cheese
grits w/grilled okra) all easy enough for a 2nd grader(with oven supervision) to prepare. In addition, this chef is not afraid of using pre-packaged
supermarket ingredients, all in the name of saving time( remember the foot massages) and ease of preparation.
The book is filled with helpful hints about not only food preparation but there is also section pairing wines with specific dinners; dinners with
appetizers and/or salads, I mean, it would really be hard to go wrong here. Mr. Moore has thought of everything. The only thing the reader needs
to do is find a woman and get ready for the stampede.
