Overview

Tony Hawk expertly frying up some eggs. Matt Hoffman daintily holding a napkin to his lips. Tina Basich preheating her oven. Wait. What? Has the world gone suddenly insane? No! This is Extreme Cuisine, where all your favorite extreme sports superstars learn the proper way to hold a fork, braise a turkey, and enter the civilized world.

Better than Martha Stewart in a halfpipe, you'll also be privy to their greatest (and sometimes only) culinary achievements. That's right! All the foods they dream of while traveling on the road, like Dave Mirra's mix light, Andrew Crawford's turkey ball, and Willy Santos's dipdip dipfry. Ranging from easy to difficult, these are wildly creative recipes, with extreme inside tips, from over 50 of the world's greatest athletes in Surf, Skate, Snow, and BMX.

But wait! There's more! You'll also get important etiquette advice, unbelievable trick-tips, and inside information on all your favorite athletes. So put on a floppy white hat, pick up a spatula (a what??), and let host Robert Earl be your extreme guide to a world of culinary delights, dining how-to, and the best way to approach a rail. Forget boring cookbooks of the past. Flip your pancakes higher, set the table better, and no matter what — live life to the extreme.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This sometimes informative though mostly scattered and base kitchen guide is aimed at the uncouth male teenager, college student, or even a hopeless adult singleton. Earl, who refers to himself as the "Martha Stewart of youth culture," certainly targets his audience: he explains how to cook with an iron or on the manifold of a car; how to use a helmet as a bowl for chips; and how to turn a surfboard into a dining table, and how to burp properly. In the same pages, however, he also offers instructions on chopstick etiquette, proper table settings (including information on such arcane instruments as a bone marrow spoon), and the do's and don'ts of fondue. Featured throughout are more than 50 recipes from extreme athletes-some horrific (French toast with Ketchup from snowboarder Shaun Palmer), others less so (Mediterranean Risotto from skier Jimbo Morgan). (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Earl is the producer of various USA and ESPN extreme sports shows. His cookbook features recipes (or sort of recipes) from 50 extreme-sports "superstars," along with their suggestions on such techniques as waxing a surfboard, etiquette lessons from Earl ("Your New Best Friend: The Napkin"), and sidebars and boxes on various other topics, including several on bodily functions. Are fans of extreme sports waiting for a cookbook from their heroes? Perhaps. Buy for demand.

Meet the Author

Robert Earl is a formulated, controlled body slam through life, once quoted as being the Martha Stewart of youth culture by Fortune magazine. He has graced the pages of numerous publications, and his ability to walk confidently through dog parks barefoot has somehow opened the doors to major corporations. His scabs of fifteen years in the action sports industry will show signs of Arnette Optics, Jones Soda, Activision, and Sprite. He's also a featured personality on Tony Hawk's Gigantic Skatepark Tour on ESPN, and in the Billabong surf epic Pickled. Maybe you've seen his feature interviews year after year at the X-Games, heard his melodious voice gracing the radio on Live 105, or even had the pleasure of hanging up on him when his visions of grandeur morphed him into the caricature of an evil Kryptonian villain. In any case, Robert Earl is a planned accident waiting to happen, and he's coming to a town near you.
