Reclaim your place in the kitchen and cook hearty, manly food you can’t wait to eat!

“I don’t know how to cook!” say most men, citing that familiar excuse. Men seem to perform perfectly fine outside on the grill, but put an apron on them and hand them a whisk, and the wheels come off quickly. Author Fritz Brand thinks that men can challenge themselves to beat down this stereotype once and for all.

In the spirit of fraternity, fellow man and home-cook convert Fritz Brand shows what works, how it works, and why it works, equipping readers with a working knowledge of kitchen basics while also divulging a few easy tricks, even if it means “faking it till ya make it.” Learn to cook for different occasions such as a romantic dinner for two, game night with the boys, feeding a horde of hungry children, or getting back in the mother-in-law’s good books (if that is even possible).

To put the techniques into practice, Brand compiles sixty simple and thoroughly edible recipes—the kind of food you just want to eat—that any self-respecting man should be able to cook:

• The cheeseburger
• Spaghetti carbonara
• Eggs "bacondict"
• Beer-battered fish and chips
• Buttermilk pancake stacks with bacon & maple syrup
• And more!

Part guide and part cookbook, Real Men Can Cook tells all men to confront their fears, drop the excuses, get their hands dirty, and cook like a man!
