Why is it that fancy food just never seems to taste as good as good ol' rustic cooking? Flambé this, nutrient foam that... Give us homemade pasta, meaty ragus and a dollop of jam on some damper any day. Rohan Anderson is releasing his cookbook tomorrow and we can't wait to spend the evening in the kitchen. It's called Whole Larder Love and is full to the brim of hearty, home-style recipes like your mother used to make (that is, if your mother lived in the American hinterlands and had a never-ending supply of yummy stock and veggies). He writes for Smith Journal, our fellow magazine for men, so we can guarantee that he's a decent bloke (as well as a decent cook).
And if this is all sounding like your wedge of brie, then also have a peep at the amazing video to the left. It's the first of Smith Journal's new videos and features Rohan building a smokehouse by hand. Pretty damn nifty, if you ask us.
