It's time to become the new hero of the kitchen. Or at least put aside your fear of frying (not to mention sautéing, roasting, or tossing a salad). Dad's Own Cookbook shows how to do everything from handling a knife properly to juggling three dishes so that dinner comes together on schedule. Its lively charts, tips, and directions replace intimidation with pleasure and camaraderie, and its 150 great recipes will turn the most culinarily challenged dad into the family chef.

Review:

And now, for the kitchen impaired, a cookbook guaranteed to take you from zero to frittata in less than an hour. Dad's Own Cookbook offers culinary neophytes and novice cooks the chance to finally flex a little muscle in the kitchen. For singles who don't cook but are trying to impress a new date, this could be the dating guide of the century.

Joy of Cooking, The New Basics, and Betty Crocker's New Cookbook are all excellent books, but if you think Cuisinart was a movement that followed the French impressionists, they just might be a bit over your head. Author Bob Sloan assumes nothing, and Dad's Own Cookbook covers it all, start to finish. From buying the ingredients to cooking and serving, Sloan offers concise, no-nonsense instruction that strips away intimidation and sends confidence levels soaring. The highlight of this extraordinary cookbook is the recipes. While Sloan assumes you might be inexperienced in the kitchen, he never assumes that you are inexperienced at the table. The recipes are admirable, including such delicacies as Chicken Tortellini with Prosciutto and Tomato Cream Sauce, Baked Salmon with Herb Crust, and Strawberry Mousse. Best of all, Dad's Own Cookbook provides you with the tools you need to put them on the table.

Sloan starts with shopping tips, such as how to read product labels and select fresh produce. (Quick quiz for the experienced cooks out there: how do you tell if an egg is fresh?) He moves on to how to pick knives and pans, and how to measure (under the snappy title "Real Men Do Measure"), prepare, and serve. Along the way, Sloan offers solid advice on selecting a menu, what to prepare in advance, and how to time the cooking so everything comes out just right and at the same time. About the only thing Dad's Own Cookbook leaves out are excuses--when it comes to cooking, you simply won't need them any more. --Mark O. Howerton

Book Description:

Praised by food writer Florence Fabricant in The New York Times as "One of the best primers ever published," Dad's Own Cookbook is still the perfect guide for every single dad facing new responsibilities in the kitchen, or married dad who has to step up to the plate . . . and serve it. As Jim Harrison wrote in Esquire, it is "an extraordinary cookbook. Sloan covers all the basics . . . in admirable recipes that are a pleasure to eat. If I had had this book 20 years ago, I could have saved myself a river of frustration in the kitchen."

Dad's Own Cookbook is one-stop shopping, from how to hold a knife, to 150 absolutely terrific recipes. Bob Sloan, who began as a self-taught cook and is a professional chef and caterer, knows intimately how to navigate a kitchen—and he covers it all: tools, techniques, ingredients, shopping, timing, and getting a meal on the table, whether a weeknight meat loaf for the kids or a weekend dinner party. He tells dad how to select the choicest meats and freshest fish; how to read a recipe; why to heat a pan before sautéeing the food; and how to organize it all into dinner (or breakfast, or lunch, or pizza night, or Thanksgiving). There are quick lessons on the microwave, the grill, the food processor; tips on everything from chopping to steaming; wine and cheese primers; the four basic potatoes and eight ways to prepare them; perfect lunchbox sandwiches and treats; and throwing the perfect birthday party for a child.

And, of course, not just the how of cooking, but the what: Dad's Official Meat Loaf, Cajun Baked Salmon, Stuffed Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese, Caesar Salad, Lamb Shish Kebab, Jambalaya with Shrimp and Chicken, Puffed Pancake, Steak Fajitas, Dad's Own Apple Pie, Chocolate Pudding. It's time to make Dad the new hero of the kitchen.
