A writer, psychotherapist and food aficionado has published his unflinchingly humorous guide to constructing delicious dishes by tapping into one’s imagination and instinctual genius. In “The Bloke’s Guide to Brilliant Cooking and How to Impress Women,” author Jim O’Connor Delves into the psychology of cooking and applies lessons learned in the kitchen to another important area of life: love and relationships.

Peppered with bite-size bits of wisdom from other sage blokes, O’Connor’s book does not contain recipes, but rather teaches readers how to appeal to their inner “animal” by paying close attention to what their senses intuit from the food they make and offers helpful, easy-to-use tools to get them started on their journey to culinary greatness.

“This book was written to appeal to people who would love to learn how to cook without having to go to cooking classes,” O’Connor said. “It’s for people who just want to get in the kitchen and start cooking using nothing but their instincts, imagination, common sense and the skills they already possess. It teaches by showing people how to think differently about the culinary process.”

Brimming with colorful photographs and motivational quotes, “The Bloke’s Guide to Brilliant Cooking” presents a uniquely recipe-less approach to a subject that can benefit just about everyone and encourages readers to work with what they already have to become confident chefs who can deftly craft aesthetically pleasing and objectively delicious dishes.
