“Guys, have you ever met a girl down the pub and told her you can cook? Or gone one step further, and offered to cook dinner for her and her mates after a day at the beach only to realise you have nothing in the fridge or know what to cook? I know I have. Over the years, my mates and I have shared stories and given each other ideas and ‘insider tips’ on how to impress a girl through the wonders of cooking,” say’s Bobby Jewell, The Lad’s Chef.
For any male whose culinary skills fall short of impressive, salvation has arrived in the form of The Lad’s Chef Cookbook by Bobby Jewell.
The Lad’s Chef Cookbook caters to the needs of every man – from guys who have just moved out of home, through to the more refined gent who still puzzles over the best dishes for particular occasions. The book breaks cooking down to basics with easy to follow recipes, lists of the crucial items to have stocked in your kitchen and how to create a lasting impression by adding the finishing touches to any dining experience.
In over 70 recipes, Jewell uses simple-to-understand instructions that won’t have guys reaching for the dictionary (how many guys know saté from sauté?) or for the fire extinguisher. The Lad’s Chef Cookbook not only covers great classics like a good Lamb Roast, Lamb Shanks or Chicken Kiev, it will also have you trying your hand at Bresaola and Tomato Salad or even homemade Apple Crumble in no time!
Whereas cookbooks often divide recipes into groups that centre on certain courses or a particular ingredient, The Lad’s Chef Cookbook provides a range of dishes suited to particular occasions, the comprehensive companion for making your meal memorable and disaster free!
So whether it’s preparing a kick-ass dinner party, a romantic dinner for someone special, a barbecue for mates or even a hearty hangover cure, The Lad’s Chef Cookbook has any guys culinary needs covered.
To top it off, Jewell shares some of his ‘insider tips’ to impress. With any luck guys, you will get that second date with that beautiful girl from down the pub!
The Lad’s Chef Cookbook is available in bookstores and department stores from 1 October (RRP$40, hardback).
