My son is actually cooking!
"The Cookbook for Men Who Must" is a collection of man friendly dishes that are well thought out and include very clear directions and color pictures that even I could follow. The philosophy of the author, Richard Chamberlain, is "Everything in Moderation" and it is a reoccurring theme throughout the book which encourages using less fat, less sugar, and taking smaller portions. While little of this can be considered health food, most of the recipes are scaled back in the "bad" stuff, with the notable exception of the last chapter (and you are repeatedly advised not to read the last chapter).

The Introduction, Getting Started, and Meal Planning chapters include your first exposure to his cooking philosophy (often alluded to in the following chapters) and a brief discussion on equipment, ingredients, and cooking in his style.

The actual recipe chapters include Breakfasts, Appetizers/Snacks,Salads, Side Dishes, Main Courses, Desserts, and "Don't Even Go Here". All of the recipes are practical and several include suggestions for variations. I found the "Fried Chicken with Onions and Mushrooms" (page 66) to produce very good results (but I didn't add the mushrooms) and was the perfect meal for my night to cook.

Being diabetic, the pictures and descriptions in the "Don't Even Go Here" chapter almost sent me into a coma.

I also like that the cover of the book is glossy, which allows it to wiped off when it gets messy in the kitchen, and this pagers are spiral bound so it lays flat, which makes it possible to leave open while following the recipes.

While the final picture is amusing, especially considering the picture on the cover, it should only be viewed on an empty stomach.

Highly Recommended!

This is a great cookbook. It breaks things down into basics, and uses very standard ingredients. We use the biscuit recipe all the time! All of the food is delicious! It is a great gift idea!
Excellent basic cookbook for people just learning culinary arts or those who have been cooking for years. Good illustrations and fun recipes that can be enhanced to your own taste. Quite funny as well. The last picture is a must see! Hope there's another book in the works!
