Swap your wrench for a whisk on father’s day, says Haynes

An alternative father's day gift idea

An alternative father's day gift idea

Jamie Oliver eat your heart out – there’s a new cookery champion in town.

Haynes has swapped the workshop for the kitchen and is hoping to show aspiring foodies who are more comfortable with a wrench than a whisk a thing or two with its new Men’s Cooking manual.

Out just in time for Father’s Day, the book is being pitched as a gift idea for dads who have trouble telling olive oil from Castrol GTX.

The manual, says its publisher, is a no-nonsense guide to making food that’s totally edible – and in some cases even tasty.

And it’s written in the sort of language that men understand. Simple. To the point. Concise. With a few jokes. And lots. Of. Full. Stops.

Written by Chris Maillard, one of the founding editors of Top Gear magazine, the book promises to reveal “real men’s” cooking techniques such as warnings about cooking while drunk.

And it covers everything from how to shop, buying and maintaining tools, selecting ingredients and basic cooking styles.
