A new series of cookbooks offering hope to the lovers and redemption to the haters of the foods that divide opinion.
After seven years as a dining critic, recipe developer, and food editor at The Denver Post, author Tucker Shaw now oversees feature and entertainment content at the paper, the ninth biggest in the country. He's written several young adult novels (three for Abrams) and two cookbooks, "Gentlemen Start your Ovens" and "A Man's Place is Behind the Bar," both from Chronicle. In 2004, before the advent of smartphones, Facebook or Instagram, Tucker schlepped an actual camera around New York City to photograph everything he ate for a year. The photos were published in a book aptly titled "Everything I Ate."
