Phoenix Books Acquires 'The Single Man's Guide to Cooking with Beer'

A new cook book to be published by Phoenix Books, Inc. promises to help single men find their way around the kitchen using a familiar fridge staple: beer.

Streeter McClure authors The Single Man's Guide to Cooking with Beer, a complete guide to using beer in easy recipes and pairing beer with food. With 34 original and adapted recipes for appetizers, soups, stews and main courses, the cook book aims to help single men incorporate beer into delicious dishes in the same way chefs use wine.

Inspiration for the recipes in the book came from a dish McClure's mother used to make, "One Beer Chili," that he says had a special flavor. His mother's chili was only the beginning of his inspiration. Publishing the cook book was a promise McClure made to his mother before she died of breast cancer in 2005. In her honor, he has decided to dedicate a portion of the book's proceeds to breast cancer research.

Phoenix Books plans to publish The Single Man's Guide to Cooking with Beer late spring 2010, just in time for the outdoor cooking season. As the Single Man's Guide brand grows in popularity, Phoenix Books plans to publish a series of Single Man's Guides, including The Single Man's Guide to Cooking with Wine.
