About This Blog


77 % of the chefs in restaurants in the US are men. So why do so many men either hate, avoid or just stink at cooking? To me the reasons are simple – either they just don’t want to learn how to cook or they are intimidated by anything more than simple grilling of steaks.

I love to cook. It is a form of creativity that is hard to duplicate at work. You plan, prepare, serve, devour and then take in the adulation of your adoring public, for the wonderful meal you have created with your own two hands.

Cooking is really not that difficult. It’s no different from most other skills. Just takes a little practice, effort and desire. What I hope to accomplish with this blog is to show men out there (and other cooks) that you can be a decent, if not very good, cook by following a few simple guidelines and incorporating some short cuts and tricks I have learned along the way.
