Book Description

April 15 2011
So long, dude food. Most men who love food have a roasting pan and a decent spice rack, but they're still looking for that one book that has all the real food they love to eat and wish they could cook. Esquire food editor Ryan D'Agostino is here to change that with his unapologetically male-centric Eat Like a Man a choice collection of 75 recipes and food writing for men who like to eat, cook, and read about great food. It's the Esquire man's repertoire of perfect recipes, essays on how food figures into the moments that define a man's life, and all the useful kitchen points every man needs to know. Satisfying, sexy, definitive, and doable, these are recipes for slow Sunday mornings with family, end-of-the-week wind-down dinners with a lady, Saturday night show-off entertaining, poker night feeds, and game-day couch camping. Or, for when a man is just hungry.

5.0 out of 5 stars My boyfriend loves this book Jan. 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got this book for my boyfriend last Christmas, and I must say I was very happy with the result. He couldn't even put it down for the first few days, and has been excited to make all sorts of recipes from it ever since. The recipes are hearty and delicious, with lots of different ways of cooking meat, which is of course why it's so well suited to men. I would certainly recommend it for anyone looking for some great new recipes, as well as anyone who loves comfort food.

Everything in this book is delicious and well thought out before printed. Most of the food lets you show off your culinary prowess and impress guests and lucky ladies. Good pictures, great ingredients, not too difficult and loaded with tips.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than expected April 1 2012
By Matt
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
the dishes in this book are seemingly all top-notch, show-stopping, jaw-dropping, and mouth-wateringly out of this world. and if that is not enough they seem to be mostly very simple to produce.

i like cook books for the ideas, and this has plenty of good ones. i usually try it their way and then "make it my own" i have not done than with this book. so far their way is better than i thought it could be. may be that is how they became famous chefs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid premise and an entertaining read but an inconsistent cookbook for those looking to learn May 18 2011
By Sean M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you're a guy and watch Top Chef, Iron Chef America, Chopped or any number of cooking shows, you'll find yourself instantly attracted to this book. Tom Colicchio, Mario Batali, Ted Allen, Michael Symon... you're going to recognize many of the chefs who have recipes featured, but if you've never attempted one of their recipes and are looking to learn technique, you'll most likely find yourself a bit disappointed in the long run as I was.

The premise is solid. I found myself saying; "I'm a man, I like to eat meat, I know who these guys are!" SOLD. Except for sides, just about every recipe here features heavily with a manly protein. Plan to eat much beef and pork if you work through the book in its entirety.

The main problem is inconsistency and lack of a clear vision towards a target audience. I was under the impression that this book catered to men who were not regular cooks but wanted to be able to make satisfying meals that were simple, but delicious and satisfying. The difficulty rating supports that notion. Recipes are "Easy," "Reasonable," or "Worth the Effort." Unfortunately, "Worth the Effort" includes recipes such as Butter-Poached Bone-In Top Loin and "Reasonable" is a Ratatouille Risotto. The difficulty of many recipes will seem overwhelming to those of you who are not more adventurous or experienced. Depending on how adventurous your palate is as well, you may find many of the recipes to be overdone, as many of them have their unique "twist." Recipes seem to go from insultingly simple, to overzealously complex. There isn't much middle ground. If you want a solid Mac & Cheese recipe, there's only two choices in the book. A 3 ingredient Macaroni Pie, or the overdone Truffled Macaroni and Cheese. Some recipes include ground-up instructions for all components of a dish, some call for out of the box mixes and other shortcuts.

I think my biggest disappointment though is it is not a good working cookbook. This isn't a book you can put up in your kitchen and easily read from while trying to make a recipe. The attractive layout is pleasing to the eye, but not well structured for step-by-step instructions. It makes a better read for inspiration and you'll need to transcribe recipes to a better working format if you don't want to memorize the more complex ones. If you need instruction on technique, you'll find it is lacking. Most recipes assume you know how cooking staples such as how to poach, recognize the difference between mincing and dicing and none of the steak recipes are supplemented with any solid pointers on how to properly cook steak. Not a problem if you are experienced, just not helpful if you're a guy looking to learn how to cook. Its not a bad book by any stretch, just inconsistent and not a great working cookbook for those of us who are less experienced. I definitely plan on trying Michael Symon's meatloaf, Harold Dieterle's Chicken Parm Hero and Tom Colicchio's Steak and Potatoes. Oh, and if you want desserts, go elsewhere. Fruit Crisp is the only dessert in the book, I guess they decided dessert is a woman's thing?

Still, I enjoyed the book for its non-recipe content. There are excerpts from previous Esquire interviews, contributions on cheese and wine and other tidbits that provide more than just a book of recipes and that help give it that "Esquire" feel.

PS - the book includes a subscription to Esquire. If you don't want the subscription, you can opt for a $5 refund on the cost of the book with the inserted card by 12/31/2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to live like a man, you have to eat like one June 30 2011
By S Hendra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love cookbooks like this. Admittedly, it's not the most educational cookbook out there (in terms of technique), but I don't think it's supposed to be. It's the kind of book you can come home to, open to a random page and use to rustle up something delicious before crashing in front of the tv. That's not to say there aren't some sophisticated recipes in there, but I've always felt that a cookbook should first and foremost allow you to tap into the inner cook, the guy who glances at the book once and again but relies on instinct to really make a meal happen. And the simpler, rustic recipes in this book bring that out in me every time I've used it (which is every night for the past week by the way).

The other cool thing is all the articles that are included in between recipes: interviews with world class chefs (Boulud, Batali), panegyrics on meat and cheese - it's music to mine ears (eyes?). It's humorously written and most importantly, it doesn't take itself too seriously, which is the hallmark of a worthy cookbook. I may not read every word of it but again it's not Mastering the Art of French Cooking, it's fun, easy recipes with delectable results. Does a man (or a woman for that matter) need much else?

And lastly, I'm a firm believer in the power of food porn, and the photos in this book are not kidding around. I would buy it for them alone. Absolutely mouthwatering. Anyway, definitely worth the buy - a great companion for a man and his kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cookbook for My Husband Filled with Sophisticated Man Food June 14 2011
By L. Coluccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My husband isn't much of a chef, but he loves to get down and dirty once in a while with chili, steaks, burgers, bacon, anything that can be served in enormous portions, with the game on in the background. This book is the best for that. While I wouldn't call it a beginner's handbook, the recipes pose challenges that my husband can willingly take on for the love of the meal at the other end. Consistent with the column in Esquire, this cookbook offers the kind of food my husband dreams about when he's really hungry, and now he can actually make it himself and tell stories about it later. Very cool. I can't wait to give it to him for Father's Day from his two baby girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Gift for Dad June 22 2011
By Austin O - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
We got this as a gift for my Dad for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it, made the short rib recipe that night. At this point we've all read it cover to cover and each recipe is more mouth watering than the next. I've already tried out the mac & cheese and am trying to work up the courage for the Coca Cola Brined Fried Chicken. It is such a cool book and I love the side bars about making the perfect sandwich and eating with my father. It's a great gift for my dad, but I also really just want it for myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars "ESQUIRE-EAT LIKE A MAN:" definitely a man's book June 10 2011
By NF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The book is fun to read and contains great recipes, especially for meat lovers and the like. It is a manly guide to food as the title says. Excerpts from the magazine's interviews with famous chefs are included as well as helpful tips on how to entertain guests at home. From the Italian breakfast sandwich to Harold Dieterle's Chicken-parm Hero with Sausage, your palate is sure to be pleased.

Though basic knowledge is required to approach some of these recipes, most of them are easy to make and their instructions are very clear.

My girlfriend complains I always make the same food. This book has given me some interesting ideas to spice up my cooking repertoire. Additionally, it provides some not-to-miss cocktail recipes to entertain your friends while they wait for your culinary "masterpieces" --like braised beef short ribs with roasted potatoes (check p.102, they are phenomenal!).

This isn't the most innovative kitchen bible, it's what a man's book should be: a fun tool for those who want to satisfy their stomachs, and occasionally impress their guests with great food without being a Michelin-star chef.

If you are still trying to figure out what to get your dad for Father's Day, maybe this time he will not receive another tie from you --he already has plenty, stop it.
