Father’s Day seems like a good time to write about Stay at Stove Dad, a cooking blog by John Donohue, who is the author of a wonderful cookbook called Man with Pan: Culinary Adventures of Fathers Who Cook for their Families.
I must say, Stay at Stove Dad is a terrific cooking blog. And you don’t have to be a dad to enjoy it. I hadn’t visited it in quite some time but I just took a look, motivated by Matthew Taub’s story about the Wordsprouts reading, and discovered fantastic recipes and great stories about cooking for one’s children.
I particularly like the way Donohue combines recipes with stories about his family, creating a sort of an on-going cooking memoir in the process.
I discovered a recipe for Bolognese sauce which may inspire me to make Bolognese sauce for Father’s Day dinner tonight. Donohue’s cookbook makes a great gift by the way.
