About the Book

There is a new kind of dad, and he’s doing far more domestic duty than at any time in history, including cooking. Although it’s written with a sense of humor, this book is a serious resource for dads and anyone else interested in upping their game to make great tasting food at home, even if they have never used a chef’s knife or a roasting pan before.

Author Robert Rosenthal teaches basic techniques and presents a playbook of simple recipes that achieve the most taste with the fewest ingredients and the least effort.™ The dishes are sophisticated enough for entertaining, yet family table tested as well. Short Order Dad covers all the essentials, from shopping ingredients and cooking tools to appetizers, soups and salads, snacks, entrees, sauces and dressings, sides, desserts, cocktails and more, to make anyone a successful chef.

Good cooking doesn’t have to be complicated to be great. In fact, it’s just the opposite. So whether you’re clueless in the kitchen, pan-fry phobic, or already a skilled cook, Short Order Dad is here to help turn your kitchen into a place to play.

Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking. We’ve been successful with books on gluten-free cooking, vegetarian and vegan cooking, paleo, raw foods, and more. Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

My Take on the Book
WOW, I already had dinner but after reading through this book my mouth is watering and I am already planning out my shopping lists for later this week. The book itself is filled with so many delicious looking recipes. Some of the ones I am looking forward to trying include:

  • Blueberry crumble
  • Not your Momm'a tuna salad
  • Let's Talk Turkey Burgers
  • Osso Buco
  • Margarita
As you can see by the list that I put in here, the cookbook is very eclectic and will not only teach you about how to use all factets of the food you eat but the recipes seem to be very easy to follow.

I met the author a few years ago and have to say that the recipes in this book really do follow the down to earth approach that he was in real life too.

I love that this collection has been created to truly inspire people to take the jump in to great tasting food that everyone will love!

On top pf cooking though, the author also shares valuable insights into cooking itself and how you can learn to afford what you can. 

This was a inspirational book that will tickle your tastebuds as well as broaden you view of what cooking is and what it is not.
