And along comes the second installment of the emotional Douche Bags VS. Cook To Bang guy saga. This time the douches crash and burn spending serious coin at a fancy restaurant. The Cook To Bang guy kills it by simply cooking and banging at home.
Stay tuned for the final DBag chapter. 1 week until the CTB BOOK hits bookshelves! I know you’re waiting with baited breath.
With two weeks until the Cook To Bang book is unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, we created a series of promos contrasting the Douche Bag and Cook To Bang methods of dating. This promo features three douchebags dropping their cheesiest barroom pick up lines. The Cook To Bang Guy schools them with his charm and culinary prowess.
Stay tuned for more exciting chapters in the DBAG vs. CTB saga!
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? Yes indeed, mon ami. But before we get down to the task at hand, let’s get some sustenance. Oui? You have to love those Frenchy frogs with their many culinary innovations. The precision they employ to make their fabulous meals is unparalleled and has been turning us on for centuries. Merci to that! Who doesn’t love a bowl of French onion soup on a cold winter day? The salty tang of the onions, the soggy French bread and stretchy cheese that always ends up on your chin. My knees are knocking while I eat seconds as I write this. Tres joleis! This soup certainly stepped up to the plate of providing radical results. My date was clearly impressed by the TLC put into it, but it was love at first bite. Neither of us could finish the bowl due to the distractions of wine and spontaneous waltzing around the kitchen. The first post-coital bite made me want to put on a beret and write post-modern poetry in French. Sacre bleu!
Total time: approximately 1½ hours
Projected cost: $10 (gruyere cheese makes it costly)
Drinking Buddy: Wine of course, silly Yankee scum!
1. 1 teaspoon of salt
2. 2 tablespoons of olive oil
3. ½ cup of cooking sherry
4. 6 cups of chicken broth
5. ½ teaspoon of black pepper
6. 1 tablespoon of dried thyme (or 6 sprigs fresh)
7. 2 tablespoons of butter
8. 6 yellow onion chopped in long strips
9. French baguette cut into ½ inch slices
10. 8 ounces of Gruyere cheese (can substitute for Swiss)
Heat a stockpot up on medium heat and melt the butter and olive oil with the salt. Throw in the onions and mix them around. Cook the onions until they reduce in volume and brown. (approx 20 minutes)
Pour in 2 cups of water into the onions and cook until the water evaporates, leaving the onions in a big brown clump. (approx 10 minutes) Pour in the sherry and repeat. (approx 5 minutes)
Add the thyme and chicken broth. On high heat, bring it all to a roaring boil, then reduce heat and simmer. (approx 30 minutes)
Preheat the oven to broil. Ladle soup into the small, deep bowls. Place French bread slices on top of each soup. Sprinkle the Gruyere cheese over each slice of French bread so they are covered evenly. Broil the soups (approx 5 minutes), allow to cool (another 5 minutes), and then eat up. Ooh la la!
A Cheesy Meaty Date for your charming magical date.
Appetizers and wine are usually all you need in the spirit of “keeping it casual.” This little ditty makes you look like a fancy French gourmand, ooh la la! If this dish takes you any longer than 7 minutes to prepare then you probably too drunk, stupid, or both. For an extra classy touch, have the dates cooking as your date walks in the door. So impressed they will be, the fact these finger foods were an afterthought will be completely lost.
1. 7 jellybean-sized chunks of goat cheese
2. 7 fresh medjoula dates split and de-pitted
3. 7 thin strips of bacon (turkey and veggie bacon work great)
Stuff each split date with a piece of goat cheese and push them back together. Wrap a bacon strip around each date.
Place the dates on a section of tinfoil turned up on the sides so no grease runs. Place in broiler (easy with a toaster oven) and cook until bacon browns. Allow to cool and let them loose along with her animalistic attraction to you.
• Stuff with brie or bleu cheese
• Wrap with prosciutto instead and serve cold
