Make It Fancy: Cooking at Home With Sad Papi (A Cookbook)



“Advanced home cooks looking to dazzle a dinner party will want to check this out.”—Publishers Weekly

Take your home recipes and techniques to the next level with TikTok sensation and professional chef Sad Papi.

When Brandon Skier first created Sad Papi (@Sad_Papi) and started posting cooking videos to TikTok, he’d just lost his job as a chef at the beginning of the pandemic. He’d spent ten years working in the kitchen of some of the top restaurants in Los Angeles—learning all the secrets of the business, understanding how chefs take cooking to the next level and, as Brandon says, how to “make it fancy.” By the time his videos started going viral, his black hoodie, backwards baseball cap, and tattoos had become his signature. Soon after, he was listed among the rising cooking social media stars in The New York Times.

Just like his addicting videos, Make it Fancy teaches you how you can cook like a professional chef and elevate meals in a doable way—all while having fun in the kitchen. Before long, you’ll be coming up with your own ways to enjoy staple and main dish recipes for unusual dishes like:

  • Lime Leaf Peanuts
  • Burnt Onion Powder
  • Pistachio Dukkah
  • Preserved Lemon Vinaigreette
  • Puffed Beef Tendon
  • Brussel Sprouts with Chorizo Breadcrumbs
  • Duck Confit with Mole Poblano
  • Pork Chop with Fennel Pollen and Pear Mostarda
  • And more!

For cooks who want to understand why restaurant food is so delicious, Make it Fancy will quickly earn a place on their kitchen bookshelf.
