Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989072312, Paperback)Nervous in the kitchen? Well, cheer up, Bunky; that’s why we’re here! We have arrived to demystify the art and craft of cooking. And more important, we’ll tell you the truth about cooking and the kitchen. Once you get the hang of some simple techniques and get comfortable with the idea that a recipe is a starting place, not the Word from the Mountaintop, you may find that this is the most fun you can have with your clothes on (a point to remember when you’re frying bacon). You may notice that this book, unlike many cookbooks purported to be for men, has no barbecue recipes. This is not because we do not love barbecue. We do! We do! We cherish stories of carbonized chicken (it was chicken, wasn’t it?) and eyebrows that never really grew back right. It’s just that we feel that barbecuing is a genetic thing: you don’t need a cookbook at all, you just need that good old Y chromosome. Come on, guys. We can all barbecue--except maybe our friend John. The ability to char raw meat over fire comes with the beard and the deep voice. What we want you to do is move that same flame-and-dripping-blood talent and confidence indoors to the kitchen. So kick back and relax. Grab a brew, read and enjoy. Don’t just follow us around like sheep. Use our book as a springboard into your own frothy lake of melted butter. We’ve already made all the mistakes for you. Look for our “Little Life Lessons” throughout the book. They represent the blunders most commonly made by guys (us). Have we learned from our mistakes? You bet. We’ve learned so well we’re able to repeat each of them perfectly. Go forth and do likewise. Good cookin’!
