Full of AMAZING recipes &nonstop humor that celebrate the best cooks around. Wouldn't it be cool to also have it on an apron. Thanks!
Hi. I'm Skylar Blue. I've spent the better part of the last three years learning, planning, writing about and speaking on gay themed dinner parties and thinking about the topics that capture the attention of those who take part: cooking, pairings, designs, and the craft behind it all. I took all these ideas and captured them in “The Gay Man’s Cookbook: It’s a Way of Life:”
From foolproof, dependable recipes to reliable how-to advice, The Gay Man's Cookbook® has everything you need for the way you cook today. Whether you're a new or experienced cook, The Gay Man's Cookbook® is the book for you! There are few things more important in Gay culture than food and many of the most iconic Gay dishes have made their way firmly into mainstream culture. Who doesn't know that Beef soup -- or Boy Hole Stew - is guaranteed to help you if you have a cold or flu. And, whilst you may not associate the stereotype of the gay man with ever venturing remotely near the kitchen, Gay Men - and they know who they are - know that even in the 21st century eating remains at the heart of gay life. The authors of this irreverent cookbook have produced a host of fabulous traditional as well as nouveau dishes of Gay cuisine. A foolproof guide to the ultimate Friday night dinner sits alongside a delicious new twist on Stuffed Avocado -- Barebacked Avocado anyone? There are also hilarious gems of Gay Men wisdom scattered throughout - 'What does a Gay Man make for dinner?' 'Reservations!' Reading this book it's easy to see that we all have a little bit of the Gay Man inside us - it's more than just a cookbook - IT'S A WAY OF LIFE!
These are practical (yet funny) ideas on the traditional cookbook set in the life of a gay man. For instance, many say that gay men throw the best parties and have the most fun. (That’s because they let loose) A cornerstone of every urban oasis, the gay culture is exploding into the mainstream lives of everyone. So, jump on the bandwagon, throw an extravagant party for your loved ones and embrace your inner Gay Man. Help get the word out.
Where's this money going? Most of it will go toward travel expenses and after that a small bit will be used to allow me to focus exclusively on the book for a few months. Additional money is going towards the production of the book and tour items: things like posters, printed copies of the book, registration fees (for book shows) and a few surprises to be won by attendees.
Cities we are visiting: Boston, Providence, NYC, Orlando, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco & MORE!
