For the past three years, Esquire food editor and columnist Ryan D'Agosti has carefully developed and expanded Esquire's food coverage, adding more in-depth features and original recipes as reader response rocketed. Eat Like a Man reflects the magazine's full-throttle commitment to food and drink content as essential to the Esquire man's lifestyle. More than a recipe collection from eager contributors like David Chang, Hugh Acheson, Michael Symon, and Andrew Carmellini-or a retread of recipes from the magazine's special edition food issues-the book will be a selective collection of recipes for brunch, lunch, dinner, sides, drinks, and a few desserts, interspersed with serious essays and tangential riffs, all written by men for men in the Esquire style.
Ryan D'Agostino is the author of Rich Like Them (Little, Brown 2009) and the editor of Esquire's column 'Eat Like a Man' as well as the 'Best New Restaurants' feature. He has been published in The New Yorker, the WSJ, Money, and NYT. He tests every recipe Esquire publishes in his tiny New York kitchen (and then feeds the results to his wife and two sons).
