    Can't endorse this as a cookbook. After looking through the reviews below, I have to say that it doesn't appear that many other people do either, mostly praising the photography or the other writing. The positive I took away was a piece of advice, a guy saying he keeps a pancake recipe in his wallet because it comes in handy every so often and everyone has the stuff for scratch pancakes. Sound advice. But while the advice is okay, the book, like the magazine that birthed it, seems obsessed with pu Can't endorse this as a cookbook. After looking through the reviews below, I have to say that it doesn't appear that many other people do either, mostly praising the photography or the other writing. The positive I took away was a piece of advice, a guy saying he keeps a pancake recipe in his wallet because it comes in handy every so often and everyone has the stuff for scratch pancakes. Sound advice. But while the advice is okay, the book, like the magazine that birthed it, seems obsessed with putting forth this sort of lifestyle. There's a whole vibe to the thing where it feels like someone is whispering in your ear that these are the dishes men should cook. That cooking this way is part of the Esquire lifestyle. That you should hang onto that pancake recipe and you'll be one step closer to that lifestyle where you're hooking up with different girls all the time and may wake up at their houses, yet you make it classy somehow. Well, I'm here to burst that bubble. Here are some shoes that they are suggesting I buy right now (5/25/2013): For a measly $175 I can wear what appear to be small wicker baskets on my feet? Well, make sure to sign me up! This is a classic Esquire move. They have normal suits that look good and cost somewhere in the low $5000's, and then a pair of short shorts that are salmon-colored with a tiny blue squirrel emblem stitched on the upper thigh. They treat food the same way, making it overly-complicated for very little actual gain. The recipe for coca-cola fried chicken? Sounded sort of good to me, and I was willing to bite. It was heavy, oily, and greasy. And if you're saying to yourself "Fried chicken is supposed to be like that" then I weep for you, friend, because you've never known true ecstasy. There was another dish I tried, some kind of breakfast scramble that involved potato chips. I think the only reason I made it was because I looked at it and said, "There is no fucking way that's good." I was right, let me tell you. I threw out almost the entire thing. A full pan of food, in the trash. Is there anything worse than cooking a family-sized portion of something, and after all's said and done your reaction is, "Well, fuck. Now I have to make something to EAT"? It's a decent read all right. But the recipes? Fuck that shit.

    Well this is hard to review. There ARE recipes in this book. Would I try any of them? No. Is this because I'm not a man and I don't "Eat Like a Man" as the title suggests? Also, no. If these recipes are how men eat, then I and most women I know, eat like men. But none of the recipes really seemed like anything I'd bother trying, mostly because I felt they were all trying too hard. I understand that this is an Esquire cookbook, but my gosh there was so much writing. I did enjoy a few of the articl Well this is hard to review. There ARE recipes in this book.

And is Esquire just a bunch of douche bags who write? Or am I missing something?

    With the typical witty and inciteful commentary that Esquire brings to the table, Eat Like A Man absolutely is the only cookbook you'll ever need. They rate the difficulty of each recipe from "easy" to "worth the effort," encouraging and inspiring you along the way without ever taking themselves too seriously. At moments they praise the Salisbury Steak we have all dreaded, and another moment you'll read a surprisingly sad story of a man who misses the simple eggs his wife used to cook for him. E With the typical witty and inciteful commentary that Esquire brings to the table, Eat Like A Man absolutely is the only cookbook you'll ever need.

At moments they praise the Salisbury Steak we have all dreaded, and another moment you'll read a surprisingly sad story of a man who misses the simple eggs his wife used to cook for him. Each recipe, mind you, is highly customize-able, and will soon provide their own memories. I recommend cooking each of the recipes in the manliest of ways possible, such as being bare-chested, ignoring a grazing bullet wound you have sanitized with some on-hand whiskey, and pondering some great emotional truth while staring out your window towards some exotic sunset. After all, you're eating like a man.

    I frequently enjoy eating like a man, so when my favourite magazine published this cookbook I bought it for my boyfriend under the pretence of gift-giving and generosity. Merry Christmas to ME. It is beautifully photographed - it could double as a coffee table book - and between recipes are cooking tips and wonderfully written essays about food. Culinary heavyweights like Mario Batali, Julia Child and Tom Colicchio lend their insights, ideas and cooking philosophies, while a section that breaks I frequently enjoy eating like a man, so when my favourite magazine published this cookbook I bought it for my boyfriend under the pretence of gift-giving and generosity.

Culinary heavyweights like Mario Batali, Julia Child and Tom Colicchio lend their insights, ideas and cooking philosophies, while a section that breaks down classic drinks provides the ingredients for one badass cocktail hour. We are cooking our way through this book, and while I'd recommend most of the recipes we've tried so far, you must EAT THE STEW. IT IS A DELICIOUSNESS KNOCKOUT.

    While I personally would not eat any of the recipes contained in this book, I found it very entertaining and informative. Commentary from celebrity chefs, cooking tips useful for anyone, and interesting charts and stories. Definitely a book of man food, as the title suggests!

    This is a fun read, with a lot of good-looking recipes. It's filled with essays and lists by the like of Top Chef's Tom Colicchio and other renowned chefs, about entertaining, grilling, etc. Definitely a high cholesterol cookbook!
