A Man & His Kitchen: Classic Home Cooking and Entertaining with Style at the Wm Brown Farm

A cookbook of simple, delicious, empowering recipes from the man who really knows what men like
 
Matt Hranek, the bestselling author of A Man & His WatchNegroni, and other books, has a direct line to a certain kind of male reader. He knows just what they like, what they aspire to, the things that interest them. And as a real lover of life, especially food and drink, he even knows what his readers want to eat: When Matt recently posted a selfie with steak, thousands of fans took the same picture. Now he’s poised to create an even deeper bond with his readers, old and new, with his first cookbook.

A Man & His Kitchen is like an invitation to Matt’s storied country retreat, the Wm Brown Farm in upstate New York, to learn how to cook the hundred-plus recipes he considers his greatest hits—simple, straightforward, and, most of all, delicious dishes to feed yourself, your family, and your friends. There’s nothing precious here, nothing trendy, just really good classic food that, at the end of the day, is all anyone wants to eat: Lobster Rolls, Vinegar-Braised Short Ribs, Roast Chicken with Potatoes, Gravlax, Chopped Radicchio Salad with Anchovy Vinaigrette, Moules Marinières, Paccheri with Shrimp, American Diner–Style Omelet, Porcini Risotto, and that steak—two, actually, Grilled Rib-Eye Steak for One and a Steak au Poivre with Parsley Salad. And just enough desserts to have in your back pocket, including Berry Galette, Flourless Chocolate Cake, and notes on the importance of keeping a stash of Klondike bars in the freezer.

Along the way, Hranek shares everything: what he keeps in his pantry, how he outfits his kitchen, shopping strategies (never come home from a trip without a few local ingredients; look for classic cookware at flea markets and tag sales), his no-waste philosophy for trimmings and leftovers, and dozens and dozens of pro tips (leave the skin on potatoes for better-tasting home fries; mix salad dressing in a jar and shake like hell for perfect emulsification; scissors are the easiest way to cut homemade pizza and focaccia).

With its beautiful photographs and elegant look, A Man & His Kitchen is a stunning book, perfect for any man interested in cooking, no matter what level of expertise—because the real gift of this book is Matt’s enthusiastic voice, encouraging us all to become passionate, attentive, and confident cooks.
