Cookbook Digest–Men at Work, In the Kitchen

There are lots of cliches about men in the kitchen. Only men can be great chefs or they use every pot and leave a mess (Sorry, that one is true in my house–use the damn sponge!).

Or that along with big messes, they like big flavors. Well, on that count, both these books deliver. In Cooking, Blokes & Artichokes, Brendan Collins lures men into cooking with a bit more nuance–starting out with a shandy for the cook and reassuring you that no one will question your manhood if you make a Romesco sauce. For more high wire dishes, and for the guy who dreams of a fryolator, Eat Street captures the creative mash-ups of food truck dining. Doritomales anyone?
