Busy Guy Pot Pie

Gentleman’s Dish


One of the quintessential qualities of a gentleman is confidence, and though it’s beneficial in all areas of life, don’t neglect developing confidence in the kitchen. Cooking skills not only benefit the gentleman himself, but enable him to create a delightful meal to entertain friends, spend time in the kitchen with family, and help his partner with everyday household tasks. Read on for the crowd-pleasing dishes these five locals think every gentleman should know how to make.

“The name of this dish says it all. As a former college football player and current trail runner, I’m responsible for consuming enough quality calories in order to maintain the high demands I placed on my body. Between classes, lifting, and practice, I had to learn to make a lot with little money and little time. This dish is easy, fun, tasty, and hard to mess up. Plus, it’s a great leftover dish for the super busy.”
