Are you a real man? Then cook like it! The Art of Manliness is a blog “dedicated to uncovering the lost art of being a man“, and through contributions from readers like you, they’ve put together a Man Cookbook full of recipes to help you rightfully claim your manliness.
Sorry fellas, but you won’t find a single recipe in here that involves the word canape, and precise directions about how to make that “to-die-for” souffle will not be found. However, there are some killer recipes for manly dishes like Hungarian Goulash, Redneck Caviar, even Thai Basil Tempeh for the Veg Man.
The Man Cookbook was created from a call to all the blog’s readers to submit recipes for the cookbook as part of a group writing project. The whole idea came from a discussion on whether cooking was manly. The answer was a resounding YES. The blog is maintained by Brett and Kate McKay, and “features articles on helping men be better husbands, better fathers, and better men.” Oh, and they should add: better cooks.
The cookbook looks like a great one – one of my favorites so far is the Insalata Caprese on a Stick. A truly manly touch of putting a meal on a stick. Get in touch with your manliness, download the cookbook, and thump your chest. You can learn other things there too; The Art of Manliness discusses issues from cooking to fashion to sex, and the website is a great reference for men looking for more ways to be, er…manly. To get the free cookbook, you’ll have to sign up for their RSS Feed or email, which is worth it if you’re looking to hone your evanescent manliness.
