Book Review: Will Cook For Sex - Again, Again... And Again

Although the title might sound racy, "Will Cook For Sex - Again, Again... And Again," is a great guy's guide to cooking.  My friend, Rocky Fino, breaks down the cooking process into easy numbered steps to get rid of the intimidation.  This isn't Rocky's first attempt at authoring... he previously released "Will Cook For Sex - A Guy’s Guide to Cooking" and "Will Mix For Sex - 21 Classic Cocktails to Set the Mood," and sold over 12,000 copies.

Rocky and I first met at the Philadelphia Food and Wine Show last year.  When he told me he lived in St. Louis, we immediately became friends.  Rocky and I also recently co-taught a cooking class together in St. Louis at the Kitchen Conservatory called, "He Said, She Said."  Rocky has a fun take on cooking and it shows.  The class loved it!

Rocky strives to show people that they can improve their relationship and their lives with a little effort in the kitchen. Rocky learned to cook from his dad (‘The Old Man’) and has enjoyed cooking and eating since he was a child. It wasn’t until he got older that he was enlightened to the true value of cooking. “I realized that a short, big-nosed Italian wasn’t exactly a woman’s first choice. I needed an edge. The first time that I experienced the results of cooking for a date that solidified my respect for food. I was young, the meal was marginal and she was too naïve to know any better. I got lucky. I never questioned the power of food again.”  So from cooking for dates, friends, or her family, Rocky is out to help some of you guys with the cause.

Rocky was kind enough to share a recipe with us from his newest book.  It looks to die for!  I can't wait to try it.  Elvis Pie
