Cooking was always a hobby for Gav, but it wasn’t until his wife, who also blogs, bought him the URL RecipesForMen.com, that he started documenting and sharing his recipes online.
The idea was to create a digital resource for men who liked to cook to get easy and quick recipes to feed their families. From slow cooked lamb shanks in gravy to Brazilian hotdogs, Gav knew many of them by heart, having cooked for his three children while they were growing up.
“It was basically to persuade people to stop buying takeaways and get into the kitchen and just cook a meal for your family,” he says. “It doesn’t need to be difficult.”
