You should add this new book from Bon Appétit to the top of your summer wish list, right alongside that new pair of shades, flip flops and retro bicycle. Notice it simply says “Book” and not “Cookbook.” It might shed light on the approach by talented Editor in Chief Adam Rapoport, formerly the Style Director at GQ – that having skills in the kitchen, and behind a grill, are not narrow genres reserved for ‘foodies,’ but essential knowledge for men. Packed with over 350 tasty recipes, first-rate cocktails and tips on entertaining, it’s a worthy addition to any home library.

During his time at GQ, Rapoport helped shape and define the magazine’s service oriented features, from style to entertaining, and his ascension to head up Bon App was well deserved, if not a little unexpected. A genuine and all-around very nice guy, he’s done a knock up job at the helm of Bon App. This is his first big foray into book publishing, and it’s a winner. $29, available at Amazon.
