Overview

Harley-Davidson riders are a close-knit community that loves good food. The official motto of Harley riders may be "Live to Ride, Ride to Live,? but the unofficial motto is "Eat to Ride, Ride to Eat.? To help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Harley-Davidson in 2003, Bill Hufnagle, aka Biker Billy, collected 200 righteous recipes from HOG (Harley Owners Group) members and other Harley enthusiasts from sea to shining sea whose close-second passion is a fantastic, stick-to-your-ribs meal with no holds barred. There are plenty of Billy's own favorites included, too. Here and only here are recipes for Nana's Famous Horseradish Cheese Spread, Grandpa's Oil Can Stew, Penne with Crankcase Vodka Sauce, Black Leather Tostadas, and John's Prison Break Cake. This is torqued-up-tasty food from a bunch of adventure-loving riders that's certain to appeal to the more than five million Harley riders across the U.S.A.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The typical Harley-Davidson owner, according to a recent New York Times article, is 45 years old with an average income of $78,300. Why such a person would be interested in Milwaukee Proud Beer and Cheese Soup, or the frozen peas in Crankcase Curry, is just part of the Biker Billy mystery. The other part is how Hufnagle (Cooks with Fire; Freeway-a-Fire) has managed to find enough uses for jalape$os, tomato sauce and kidney beans to generate this third volume of his gourmand-on-wheels series. Actually, many of the 200 recipes are borrowed from fellow motorcycle addicts from across the country. Lisa's Day-Long Muffin is an energy pack of banana, nuts, brown sugar and chocolate chips. Alternatively, Dena Sheet's Fiery Breakfast Burritos, stuffed with pork, peppers and cheddar, is a gas in every sense of the word. Hog mavens are evidently drawn to pork as further exemplified by Chris File's Ragin' Cajun Pork Roast, which is layered with Tasso Ham and Jalape$o Pepper Jack Cheese before cooking in a Dutch Oven. Chili, of course, earns a chapter of its own and while none of the 14 versions break new ground, readers are at least given the verbatim (albeit unappetizing) instructions of Bruce Peterson for his Emergency Chili: "Drain the grease.... If you strain it through a sock... you can lube the wheel bearings on yer ol' lady's grocery wagon with it." The 55 photographs are of choppers, and anyone turning to the Resources appendix in hope of locating a supplier of hot peppers will find instead the phone number of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio.
