    Also the donna hay books are great, this one, Seasons, has some great recipes.

    Default Great cooking book for an avid male cook?

    Thanks everyone, you've given me great ideas

    I don't know if he favours a particular cuisine, I think he likes to cook anything that will take his fancy.

    As for where you find a guy like this, I don't know either lol! But his gf sure knows she is onto a good thing and is gunning for a ring lmao!!

    I've never wanted Roast Pork so much in my life!

    just looking at these books is making me drool!!

    Has anyone ever used Matthew Hayden's cookbook? Bro does like cricket... just not sure if that is getting a bit silly, trying to combine an aussie cricketer with a cook book.. (although he did have his own tv series so he can't be that bad?)

    Another vote for Jamie Oliver's books from me.

    My DH is a blokey bloke but LOVES to cook and is awesome at it too. He seriously amazes me with what he can come up with on his own without following any recipe. If he does follow a recipe though it's usually from a Jamie Oliver book - he's got several of them.

    Another one to try is Matthew Evans - Gourmet Farmer off SBS. His books are a lot to do with using simple, honest ingredients well. He grows or catches most of his own ingredients which is something that really appeals to my DH too (not sure if your bro is into that side of things but worth considering!)

    Donna Hay's recipes are great.
    Jamie Oliver 30/15 minute book.
    4 Ingredients books are great too.

    And I tend to hunt down the Women's Weekly cookbooks too (you know the small ones you sometimes see at the checkout in the supermarket). They are great and there's a massive range. I think Kmart has a lot of them.

    Stephane Alexander, it's THE cook book of all cook books!!
    a bit expensive but it has all techniques that a chef uses.

    Second Stephanie Alexander!

    Bill Granger is good too - simple, quick and tasty. Plus often you can adapt them to your own style and tweak them a bit.

    Jamie Oliver also good, as is Maggie Beer
