Publisher Comments:

Sixteen years ago on Father's Day in Chicago, K. Kofi Moyo and his wife, Yvette, gathered together a group of men for a food festival. Each man prepared his signature dish. The goal was to raise money for local charitable organizations and shine a light on the "real men" — the unsung heroes of the black community — who care for their families throughout the year.

Real Men Cook for Charity is now the largest national Father's Day event in the United States. In cities all across the country, from New York to Los Angeles, from Chicago to New Orleans, several hundred husbands, uncles, brothers, coaches, and teachers have participated in the event and have raised nearly a million dollars for a variety of charities, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the YMCA, and for health initiatives like prostate cancer awareness.

The men are all different, whether they are from Chi-town (up-South from Mississippi and Arkansas), N'awlins, Motown, Dallas, D.C., Miami, Philly, L.A., the Big Apple (with fried fish and biscuits on the side), or Hotlanta. But on Father's Day, they stand together, united by their love of cooking and an unwavering commitment to brotherhood and community.

In Real Men Cook, the men share more than one hundred mouthwatering, finger-lickin'-good recipes — the kind of recipes that make the Father's Day event a must-attend for all who appreciate a good plate of food. Equally important, they open their hearts, offering memories of growing up, tales of Real Men Cook events, and wisdom for the next generation.

This unique book is a priceless legacy that will nourish your family in spirit and body.

A delicious, heartwarming collection of soul-stirring stories and more than one hundred soul-satisfying recipes from real men who do it in the kitchen!

Every Father's Day for the past sixteen years, men — from the guy next door to politicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, and artists — gather together in cities across the country to participate in the Real Men Cook for Charity event. They sacrifice more than a quiet Sunday at home: they spend weeks preparing and all day on their feet dishing out their savory creations for more than thirty thousand people. The time and effort is rewarded only by the smiles on the faces of the women and children who gather for the celebration every year.

Now one hundred and eight of these remarkable volunteers come forward to express their love of cooking, family, and community, sharing more than one hundred delectable recipes (some handed down over the generations) and the memories that inspire them to live as Real Men.
