You don’t cook Brah???

Listen, I can go on and on about why it is important to cook. I can pour out paragraph after paragraph and sentence after sentence on the subject. I can talk for hours about how a nice, home cooked meal has turned an angry lover of mine into putty in my hand. I can tell you over and over again that women love men who can cook but hey, how about I let Janice Dickinson break it down for you:

I like the way he handled himself in the kitchen. I like men who cook. Men who cook are generally good lovers.”

-Janice Dickinson

Look, it’s simple science. Men who cook, break headboards. So Why don’t you drop the Xbox controller for a second, pick up a f***ing spatula and get to flippin’.

This weekend I got out on the grill and cooked a little Lunch for my girl and I and I looked damn good doing it if I say so myself. So I’ll highlight the meal and the look for all you future chefs out there.

The Meal

OG Surf and Turf: Steak with Gorgonzola Herb Butter, Sautéed Lemon and Herb Shrimp, Balsamic glazed asparagus and butternut squash risotto.


When you want to impress, go with a surf n' turf!

Steak tip: When you cook a steak, Do Not over season. The star should be the meat. Salt and Pepper is all you need. If you are a lover of steak sauce, instead of drenching your steak in it, just baste the steak with a little sauce while its cooking. I grilled this steak for about 12 minutes. 7 minutes on one side and 5 on the other. It came out medium well which is how I like it!
You gotta' have veggies. I have a couple of tricks to make my vegetables pop. Number 1 is butter and Number 2 is balsamic vinegar. I added both to this asparagus and grilled it in foil. It came out with a delicious buttery glaze.

I like white wine and this SB was amazing. Whites go very well with seafood.

Look you don’t have to be a gourmet chef but you should have a couple of recipes in your back pocket when you need to impress. Surf and turf is always a hit in my book. I’ve went ahead and added links to the recipes I used for my Surf n’ Turf. See below and get to grilling.

As you can see I kept this look simple because I wanted the eye to zoom in on my electric Blue Kicks by ASOS.

The Break Down

These beast right here steal the show. Comfortable, bright, and cool as Polar Bear Poo. I found these ASOS kicks on line on sale for about $25.00

I got all my accessories from Aldo with the exception of my watch which is a midnight blue Invicta Watch with interchangeable bands.

And there you have it. When it comes to cooking, try a Surf n’ Turf when you want to impress. Also remember that when you have on a bold item, like my electric blue shoes, keep the rest of the look simple to let your statement piece shine!

Real men cook Gents, remember that.
