Shake-Shack-Recipes-and-Stories

Shake Shack needs no introduction, but the people behind Shake Shack: Recipes & Stories might. Randy Garutti is the CEO of Shake Shack. Mark Rosati is the Culinary Director of Shake Shack. Written by the two of them and renowned food author Dorothy Kalins, along with an introduction by Danny Meyer, Shake Shack: Recipes & Stories is part culinary blueprint for recreating Shack classics like ShackBurgers, crinkle-cut fries and frozen custard shakes at home and part well-spun yarn about what happens behind the scenes at the burger chain and how it got there. From chapters based on everything from Born in a Hot Dog Cart and Burger Bliss to The Art of the Opening and Chills & Thrills, Shake Shack: Recipes & Stories tackles everything that made Shake Shack the cultural phenomenon it is today. We’re willing to say that it’s a cookbook every man should own if for no reason other than to be able to recreate those favorites late at night when you can’t get your fix.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
