AN AUTHOR and blogger from Marlow will be on hand to sign copies of his cook book with a difference this evening.

Phil Hawthorn, who lives in Redgrave Place, will be promoting his book ‘Can Men Cook’ at the Britannia on Little Marlow Road from 6.30-7.30pm.

As well as recipes, his self-published book contains cartoons, jokes and even sex tips along the way.

He said: “It’s a funny cook book rather than just the recipes you normally see. It helps men get from first base right through to cooking a full Sunday roast.

“Plus, it promises to make you a sex god along the way!”

One reviewer described Can Men Cook “like a cook book written by Top Gear.”

It is available from Phil’s website or as an e-book on Amazon.

Originally from Liverpool, Phil has lived in Marlow for 10 years and by day runs a management company.

He is also a popular food blogger, with his musings and food reviews listed at
