Mother’s Day is now past and I hope you all made it great for mom. Now comes Father’s day! You know that other day you celebrate your other parent. That guy who is also responsible for you being here, he helped provide for you, cared for you and helped to raise you. Yes him. Guess what? He doesn’t want another tie, scarf, hat, robe, shirt that says “world greatest dad”, or any of those other lame gifts he’s gotten over the years because he was an afterthought and you grab the first thing you saw as a last-minute gift to give to him. Most Dads don’t care about greeting cars like mothers do. Most Dads don’t care for those lame gifts I mentioned before, but they will take them and act happy because you’re their child and they love you. This year, surprise your dad and put a genuine smile on his face like you did for mom! Get him something he would love, cherish and use proudly!
If your dad barbeques/grills, I have a few suggestions for you that will once again make dad proud of you, put a real smile on his face, and if you have other siblings; it will make you his favorite for the remainder of the year.
Steven Raichlen really knows the pleasure men get from cooking, the joy they take in having the skills, the need to show off a little bit. His Barbecue! Bible books have over 4.7 million copies in print—and now he leads his readers from the grill into the kitchen. Like a Joy of Cooking for guys, Man Made Meals is everything a man needs to achieve confidence and competence in the kitchen.
Man Made Meals is about the tools and techniques (guess what, grillers, you still get to play with knives and fire.) It’s about adopting secrets from the pros—how to multitask, prep before you start cooking, clean as you go. It’s about understanding flavor and flavor boosters, like anchovies and miso, and it’s about essentials: how to shuck an oyster, truss a chicken, cook a steak to the desired doneness. It’s about having a repertoire of great recipes (there are 300 to choose from), breakfast to dessert, to dazzle a date, or be a hero to your family, or simply feed yourself with real pleasure. These are recipes with a decided guy appeal, like Blowtorch Oatmeal, Fire-Eater Chicken Wings, Black Kale Caesar, Down East Lobster Rolls, Skillet Rib Steak, Porchetta, Finger-Burner Lamb Chops, Yardbird’s Fried Chicken, Blackened Salmon, Mashed Potatoes Three Ways, and Ice Cream Floats for Grown-Ups.
