Men and Cooking (in honor of Father's Day)

June 11, 2013

fireChicagoans are extremely serious about their grilling. I have seen neighbors struggling to cook meat in subfreezing January temps. While I’m not especially skilled at BBQ, I respect others’ ability to turn out a tasty offering after flipping, poking, basting, etc, until the magic moment that the food is deemed perfect. In this spirit, here are some cookbook titles at EPL specifically geared to men, which include BBQ, but are not limited to it:

ebook- The Bachelor’s Grub Guide

Man with a Pan

The Men’s Health Big Book of Food and Nutrition

Eat Like A Man

Mad Hungry

There are several other worthwhile titles, as well.

Also- check the website Epicurious– it has an appealing mix of recipes, stories, articles following the same themes, plus interviews and gift ideas.

August 15, 2012

Born 100 years ago today, Julia Child revolutionized cooking in America when her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking was published in 1961.The Dining & Wine section of today’s New York Times has some wonderful tributes to her, including one from her friend and colleague Jacques Pepin, and food writer Julia Moskin. Don’t miss her fabulous-sounding recipe for floating island with apricot creme anglaise! She became a TV icon with her cooking show The French Chef, and inspired the 2009 film Julie & Julia. See the EPL catalog for the many books by and about her.  Bon appetit!
