About The Reluctant Gourmet:

At The Reluctant Gourmet, you will find detailed information written in plain English on everything from how to buy the best sauté pan to how to cook and clean crabs to how to make the best mashed potatoes. If he has ever wondered about it, he has researched and written about it to share with you. His site also contains over 400 recipes, from simple, everyday fare to dinner party and holiday food. But don't worry. Through even the most involved recipes and techniques, the Reluctant Gourmet will be your guide in the kitchen, one you don't need a translator to understand.

So why is he called the Reluctant Gourmet? The definition of "gourmet" is a connoisseur of fine food and wine. While the Reluctant Gourmet enjoys these things, he also is interested in basic cooking techniques and putting tasty, healthy meals on the table for his family. So, while he enjoys gourmet food on occasion, he is reluctant to call himself a full time gourmet. He also can be a bit reluctant to try new recipes and methods. As we all know, it's pretty easy to get into a cooking rut and stay there, making the same few meals over and over again. Stick with RG, though. He has found some ways to overcome his reluctance to try new things and is eager to share them with his readers.

The Reluctant Gourmet truly is relatable. We can relate to him because he has been where we are: trying to figure out what's for dinner, trying to decipher arcane cooking terminology and methods, just trying to put something tasty and healthy on the table for his family, and trying to get over his own reluctance in the kitchen to encourage us all to do the same.

Not only has the Reluctant Gourmet put in the time to learn to cook for himself and his family, but he has also built a huge cooking website so that we can all learn from him and with him. As a matter of fact, the Reluctant Gourmet website and all its content will soon be even more accessible. the RG site that he built and has been maintaining and adding to since 1997 is soon to get a sleek new look that will automatically find other content related to the page you're already reading.
