Inspired by tough-guy chefs like David Chang, Mario Batali, and Bobby Flay, men are cooking now more than ever. This year for Father's Day, why not skip the fussy cuff links, the itchy sweater vest, and the expensive golf equipment, and give Dad...a cookbook?
He probably already knows how to char a burger to medium-rare and blister a hot dog until its crisp and juicy. Now with New South Grilling by Robert St. John, he'll learn the secrets to preparing hearty, bold backyard barbecue favorites inspired by the vibrant flavors of the deep south. As the Executive Chef/Owner of the Purple Parrot Café, Crescent City Grill, and Mahogany Bar in Mississippi, St. John is at the forefront of cutting edge Southern cuisine.
