New book for kitchen cowards and the families that love them.
Relax Dad, the bookMar 10, 2012 05:59 EST
For men, there is no need to fear the kitchen any longer thanks to a new book released this week. “Relax, Dad. It’s Just the Kitchen” by author Stan Reese is available for advance sale through the author’s website, www.RelaxDad.com. The book will be available later this month on CreateSpace Press and Amazon.com and through many bookstores later this spring.
The book contains common everyday kitchen advice for men who would like to find their role evolving as a cook. There are also more than six dozen simple recipes and a few personal stories from the author’s early days as a “kitchen coward”.
“If someone had written this book twenty-five years ago and given me a copy, my life would have been much simpler”, Reese said from his home in Huntsville, Alabama. “I was a single Dad and I knew absolutely nothing about cooking or the kitchen or shopping”.
Drawing on more than two decades of experience as a single Dad and now a new Dad over forty, the book helps men grasp the basics of cooking breakfast, lunch, dinner and even holiday foods, desserts and party foods. There are also chapters about kitchen tools, staples for the pantry, safe food handling and general measurements.
“It really does simplify the process because, by nature, men make things difficult, especially in the kitchen“, Reese confesses.
Growing up in a traditional family as the youngest of five sons in LaGrange, Georgia, the author admits that he was spoiled. He says he never even had to make his own sandwich much less boil water.
“I even added the recipe for boiled water in the book, kind of as a joke, but the truth is that I didn’t really know how to boil water when I became a single parent in 1989. I really had to learn everything on my own. ”
The book has 141 pages of advice, stories and recipes and is available in paperback and as an e-book for $12.81. There are no other cook books available written by a regular man for a regular man with simple but tasty recipes.
The book is a perfect gift for any man whether he is just starting out in the kitchen or whether he has been around the chopping block a few times. It’s also an easy way for a wife to tell her husband that he needs to help out in the kitchen.
(The author is available for interviews by phone at 256-874-5080. Personal interviews can also be arranged. He can be contacted through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The book is the first in a series that Reese hopes will aid men all over the country and help them to accomplish more with their families. )
