We received a complimentary copy of this cookbook so we could check it out before the launch and share our opinions. Just out of the box, this cookbook feels “man worthy” because it has bright, bold images, clear instructions, and bold text and headings. There’s nothing we like more than clear instructions that are easy to follow and don’t waste a lot of our time.
No longer a bachelor himself, Chef Avi is now on a mission to tell guys it’s time to step away from the microwave and get in the kitchen to cook real food. There’s no excuse not to hone your culinary skills with Avi’s straightforward techniques and guidance helping you along the way. His dishes will have you building confidence in the kitchen, all while having some pretty amazing meals like:
- Stuffed Cherry Peppers
- Jalapeno Mac & Cheese Balls
- Bone-In Rib Eye with Sautéed Spinach and Feta
- and the amazing, Best Friggin Burger Recipe
If you don’t know who Avi Shemtov is, let me give you a little background. With a dad as a professional chef, Avi took up a life in the kitchen at a young age. During college, Avi became the go-to guy for all things food: tailgating recipes, what to a cook for a girl you’re dating, you name it. He has been featured in the Boston Globe and on DigBoston.com, lives in Canton, Massachusetts, and is the owner of the wildly popular Boston food truck The Chubby Chickpea.
What Avi says about The Single Guy Cookbook, “Single guys have plenty of things to worry about – work, women, fantasy football – and the last thing you want is a collection of long, complicated recipes. In this book I’ve given you the same easy-to-make (and clean-up), great-tasting recipes that I’ve passed along to my buddies.”
When you’re a single guy you are cooking for one and sometimes it’s hard to be creative. The Single Guy Cookbook has some great ideas when you cook for one person that aren’t complicated.
It sounds like Avi has thought about everything when creating this cookbook. With recipes like Slow-Cooker Pulled Chicken Quesadilla, or quick cleanup dishes like Kielbasa Carbonara and Italian Chili, and game day grub with Buffalo Chicken Queso and Short Ribs with Potato Slaw on Toast you’re buddies are going to love you. There are ideas for re-purposing leftovers too.
Just like Avi likes to say, The Single Guy Cookbook will help you make awe-inspiring dishes that you’ll be proud to place in front of any person who enters your man cave, and most importantly, you.
