Summer puts us in a food kick. Maybe it’s firing up the grill, being able to dine outside or just all the refreshing summer ales we get to wash down the meals with. Whatever it is, we’re starting to think about Texas Ribeyes about as often as sex (okay, maybe not that much). In our exploration of food we’ve turned to cookbooks from esteemed chefs and episodes of No Reservations for random pieces of knowledge. Think of Man With A Pan as a sort of one-stop knowledge shop with 21 incredible chefs and food writers chiming in on their primal passion (not sex – though that would be an interesting read). From the sophisticated palates of Mario Batali’s little Croc-rocking tikes to Mark Bittman’s basics, you’ll delve deeply into their food worlds and emerge extremely hungry and ready to eat.
