Join current MasterChef favourite and resident gay guy Khanh Ong as he helps you rediscover how food can make you feel, how it brings friends and family together and how it helps reconnect. Khanh shares his favourite family recipes, passed down through generations and giving an insight into his family history - Vietnamese classics such as prawn and pork spring rolls or tamarind crab. There are recipes to make for (and with!) your mates - lazy brunches, epic feasts, movie nights - as well as meals to help heal a broken heart, such as spaghetti for one and snickers tart. Khanh also includes the meals he loves to cook to impress a new date, from Vegemite dumplings and sriracha and coconut cauliflower to sticky date pudding. Or if you just feel like being basic and keeping things simple, there are post-gym eggs, 3pm protein balls and the easiest fried chicken ever. With more than 70 recipes and charming anecdotes about life, love, family and dating, A Gay Guy's Guide is an explosion of fashion-led fun and influence, delicious food and Khanh's distinctive tongue-in-cheek humour. As Khanh says, food is more than just sustenance, it's love, it's loss and it's life.
