The only 10 things you ever need to know how to cook
One of the most annoying things about the glut of "How to be a real man" articles on the internet (other than their continued insistence on trying to get dudes to wear dress shoes without socks) is that they don't always help with the remedial basics. Nowhere is this more apparent than with food. It's either "grill everything" or "make this nine-course tasting menu or you won't be able to satisfy your love and she'll leave you for her co-worker Steve who is the worst kind of dude because he roots for the Colts and says stuff like ‘slappa da bass.’” Damn, do I hate that Steve. Anyway, I'm here to help you step up your cook game. This is dedicated to those folks who don't know béchamel from a baseball bat.
