Editorial Reviews

Review

Hot on the (w)heels of John Youk's Big John's Speedway Grill, Race Day Grub is a cookbook that burns rubber. Skinner, wife of NASCAR star Mike Skinner, culls recipes from the NASCAR family: drivers, wives, technicians, etc., who work, live, and breathe this sport. The result is a smart, easy-to-handle cookbook for your everyday chef or grill master.
Skinner tells a fun tale of crashing in the kitchen-she had a major fiasco during Thanksgiving-and then launches into her assumed role entertaining guests on the road before and after races. Here she shows how this role helped her develop and find exciting recipes that don't require much time but are big on flavor. Life can be every bit as quick as a racetrack, so families in a hurry can sink their forks into "The Lazy Meat and Egg Bake" and still make it to work and school on time. With six chapters of nearly 90 recipes, this work is your everyman's and every woman's cookbook. Highly recommended for large public libraries.
—Steven G. Fullwood, Schomburg Ctr. Lib., New York (Library Journal, May 15, 2007)

Whether you're flaming up the BBQ in the parking lot at Daytona or slow-simmering at home on race day, let me tell you--this book is the place to start. Angie Skinner has put together a really great collection of recipes here, and chances are good that your driver's favorite dish is one of them. Even if you never make a single one of these recipes, the stories that go along with them are priceless. A great gift idea for any NASCAR fan (or chef!).

Whether you're tailgating at the track or a game or cooking at home, this book has everything you need to make the occasion special! The stories and pictures(including several of the beautiful Angela) make the book good reading, too. Pick up a few copies to give as gifts for the hosts of your next cookout!

We are new NASCAR fans and listen to Angie on Sirius NASCAR radio. Got this book for some ideas for meals while at races and it is AWESOME!!!!! We have made about 5 of the recipes so far and, although not healthy, they are KICK ASS in terms of flavor! We save them for the race weekends and we don't worry about the calories!

"Shrimp and vegetable risotto" is not your typical tailgate fare, but this isn't your typical cookbook, either! Angela Skinner, wife of driver Mike Skinner, has collected recipes from NASCAR drivers, their spouses and crews that far exceeds hot dogs and hamburgers. For example, driver Mark Martin shares his "Salmon in Merlot" and Benny Parsons adds his "Favorite Crab Cakes."
The food is perfect for any family gathering (whether you're at a track or not.)
