Race Day Grub: Recipes From the NASCAR Family


The Denver Post's Ellen Sweets reviews Race Day Grub: Recipes From the NASCAR Family: "Replete with race-related catchphrases - "Speedy Starters," "Raceworthy Main Courses" and "Sweet Victories" - the 140-page cookbook gives entertaining insight into the lives of those who drive the circuit and how they eat on the road. The anecdotal material is engaging, and the recipes ain't half bad. Not all are off the beaten track ("What's Left in the Cabinet?" grilled chicken, sauerkraut pizza, "Conch and Jimmy Chowder") or made with prepared/ canned/packaged ingredients, either."

Three recipes to check out; the Crabmeat au Gratin and Shrimp and Vegetable Risotto look pretty good, but the Spicy Beer-Brined Pork Loin is practically calling my name.
