`Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style' is a NASCAR published book by chef extraordinare, Mario Batali. To those who are not foodies and are unaware of cookbooks, chefs, and the Food Network, and who happen to be in this swim simply because of the label `NASCAR', let me reassure you that in his culinary world, Mario Batali is serious mojo. Among chefs, among chefs, he has achieved the equivalent of winning the Nextel cup twice and built up a racing team comparable to that of the Petty or Andretti families. And, the quality of the recipes in this book demonstrates this skill, even if it is poaching on the territory of fellow `Iron Chef', grillmeister Bobby Flay. But, it would seem from the pics and commentary in this book, Mario is a very serious fan of NASCAR and the kind of tailgating practiced by its fans.Mario is such an ardent fan that my suspicions that this book was done entirely for the money are put to rest; however, I do believe that the book is just a bit more slipshod in editing and design than it should have been. For example, in the recipe for `Eggs in Hell', Mario cites his `basic tomato sauce' as an ingredient, yet in this book, there is no recipe for this `basic tomato sauce', which is odd, since the recipe is repeated in every one of his other books. I think this is unfortunate since unlike his other books, this one is likely to be bought by people who do not otherwise buy a lot of cookbooks. The least expensive source for the recipe would probably be to look for it on the Food Network web site (foodnetwork.com) or to get his first book, `Simple Italian Food, Recipes from My Two Villages'). Another slip is that only one of his sons' name is in the index, yet both sons' names (Leo and Benno) appear in the text, each associated with a specific recipe.
