Welcome to Bravado Cooking:

Where real men (and women) learn to cook the Classic dishes with authenticity and flair.

Here at Bravado Cooking we believe that:

  • Cooking is a sport that requires training and perseverance.
  • Being able to reliably prepare the great Classic dishes is job one.
  • 30-minute meals are for sissies.
  • When Bravado chefs show their stuff, friends are impressed and women swoon.
  • Most of the elite Bravado chefs are from Wisconsin

If you want to learn how to cook an amazing Rustic Cassoulet or Spaghetti Bolognese, you’ve come to the right place.

Using the Site:

There are three kinds of incredibly interesting information available on this site:

Diary to a Wandering Foodie:  These are entertaining notes and footnotes from a peripatetic bard who is interested in only two things – one of them is food.  Click on the menu item at the top of the page and start the journey.

Classic Recipes:  Click on the menu items above on the right hand side of the page to see some of the great dishes from Italy, France, Spain, Asia and America.  Britain and Latin America are coming soon.

Fun Stuff:  This is mostly silly tidbits that you may find interesting.  Click on the menu item at the top and check them out.

Easy Printing and iPhone App


Some have been bugging me about finding a way to easily print the now famous Bravado recipes.  Well, we found a way – check out the “Print and PDF” button at the end of each post.  You can print the complete version, eliminate the images or even delete some of the sassy banter – although I realize that will not happen very often.

iPhone App

This is easier than you think.  Go to Bravadocooking.com on your iPhone and check out our new app.  I used it in the store yesterday to buy the things I needed for Veal Piccata.  When you open the app, you land on the Home page.  Scroll to the bottom and you will see the categories of recipes, like “American Classics”.  Click on that and up come the recipes in easy to read font.
