Jamie Oliver eat your heart out â€“ 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 thatâ€™s totally edible â€“ 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 menâ€™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.
