Father’s Day’s A-Coming

No time to write a full-fledged review (though I plan to next week, after I return from BlogHer Food), but today is the on-sale date for a book I’ve been enjoying immensely, edited by John Donohue of Stay at Stove Dad. It’s called Man with a Pan.

Man with a Pan is a collection of essays, recipes, tips, and ideas from men who cook. Specifically, fathers who cook for their families. And they’re not just any old dads: Mario Batali, Mark Bittman, Stephen King, Peter Kaminsky, Jim Harrison, Thomas Beller…

If there’s a man in your life who loves being in the kitchen with his family, whether it’s to cook or just to soak in the atmosphere, I can’t think of a better Father’s Day gift.

(Local folks: There’s a reading coming up, June 2nd at Housing Works Used Bookstore Cafe. Details are at Stay at Stove Dad.)
