These guys are great, they live to rock like I live to cook. (Michael Symon, Iron Chef; owner of Roast Detroit)
If anyone knows their favorite dishes from Cabo Wabo Cantina Steve Harwell will. He’s been a regular at Cabo Wabo Birthday bashes and I consider him a party veteran.
(Sammy Hagar, rockstar; owner of Cabo Wabo Cantina)
I love being part of this cookbook because it’s young and fresh, just like me! (Michael Richard, chef; owner of Central Washington D.C.)

A) The Sammy Hagar Chapter. The whole things about aliens! Wha?
B) Listen man me want to hear about your recipe for the cabo wabo chicken not the anal probes.
3) The ingredients are hard to find.
Hey now. You're cooking. Like an ALL STAR!
The chapter introductions are basically anecdotes illustrating that Smash Mouth a. rock, b. are cool, c. are unafraid to do their own thing, d. are sometimes misunderstood, e. have sold a lot of albums and that Steve Harwell is essentially the coolest person to have ever lived. Also, their tour bus is frickin' sweet. Again, brilliant self-parody.Read more ›
-The jello mold that "only shooting stars" can make.
-The "I can't get enough of you baby-back ribs."
-Jerome Bettis is from Detroit.
-Somebody once asked if I could spare some change for gas, and I said yup what a concept, I could use a little fuel myself, in the form of chicken tandori poppers.
I was a little confused by the Sugar Ray Cookies.
To quote the Smash Mouth song the Monkees covered: And then I saw that taste, now I'M a believer.
Perhaps it helps that this reviewer has never heard of "Smash Mouth" who, thanks to an Internet search, one understands is an American rock band from San Jose, California that has been performing since 1994. This review thus can be totally cold, objective and devoid of even any invisible "fan love". This reviewer comes to the party totally without prior knowledge or expectation.
So what are you getting? What has made this reviewer so keen and eager? This is a massive telephone book-sized collection of recipes that caught the band's eye in eateries on their various travels across the United States. No specific rhyme or reason, no focus on a specific type of cuisine. Just recipes from all over the place, ordered by state and backed up by an index at the end should you wish to dive in by ingredient or food type. There is also an index of song names too, for those who are real fans of the band but this review solely focusses on the food side of things.
The recipes are wonderfully varied. It is not just the typical "band food" you might have assumed, with just variations of pizza, wings or hamburgers. There are many little unexpected gems, such as Lobster Sandwiches, Bleu Cheese Biscuit and Cucumber Jalapeño Margarita. Each recipe is clearly laid out, well written and some engaging photographs of either the dish, the band or both follow.Read more ›
