Attention, dudes: you no longer have an excuse to avoid the kitchen.

These mouth-watering recipes are easy to read and, most important, easy to replicate. When Churchill was twelve, he put on an apron and agreed to take his turn cooking dinner for his family. Now in his twenties, Churchill draws on his self-taught experience in the kitchen, along with his extensive knowledge of nutrition, to create simple, delicious, and healthy meals. Divided into sections based on everyday scenarios and featuring forty-five recipes, DudeFood shares the secrets to cooking a repertoire of eggs, seafood, poultry, meats, vegetables, sandwiches, and even desserts. If it's Sunday afternoon and you're preparing for another long workweek: save time and money with Churchill's slow roasted beef, a hearty meal you can enjoy that same evening, but also slice up for lunch tomorrow. If it's early Wednesday morning, and you're getting ready to hit the gym: mix the ingredients for a banana chocolate smoothie in your blender, which provides the right amount of protein you need to repair your muscles after lifting weights. If it's Saturday night--date night--and you're eager to impress, follow Churchill's directions for baking a shortbread cookie topped with delicious chocolate ganache. Packed with helpful tips and shortcuts, as well as beautiful photographs, this book will turn any dude into a cook"-- Provided by publisher.

Here are their delicious homemade pastas, risottos, desserts, and more, which have foodies from all over the world taking the ferry to the forgotten borough for an authentic taste of Italy. Beautiful full-color photography captures the fresh, distinctive flavors of these surprising dishes. Nonna Cristina shares her beautiful Risotto with Strawberries, Black Pepper, and Parmesan; Nonna Margherita offers delectable Stuffed Peppers with Pine Nuts and Raisins; and Nonna Teresa shows off her prize-winning Meat and Cheese Lasagna. Nonna Elvira whips up her peerless Linguine with Cuttlefish and Ink; Adelina creates a savory Tagliatelle with Pumpkin, Sausage, and Chestnuts; and Rosaria makes handmade Spaghetti alla Chitarra with Cherry Tomatoes and Porcini Mushrooms. Nonna Carmelina shares her classic Potato Pie with Ham, Salami, and Mozzarella; Rosa confides her nonna's secret recipe for Rabbit with Sage; and Nina sautés Chicken alla Capricciosa, with prosciutto and mushrooms. Nonna Francesca launches the book with advice on the time-honored art of preserving everything from olives to soppressata. With its utterly delicious tastes of grandmother's kitchen, Nonna's House is a legacy of flavors passed down through generations, now captured here forever. Restaurant founder Jody Scaravella says it best: 'If I have a choice between a three-star Michelin chef's restaurant and Grandma's, I'm going to Grandma's.
