Book Description

From 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).

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.
