Hello Gang:
I just thought I'd let you know that I found a source for copies of "The First Ever: Ox Baker's Cookbook, A Tribute to the Fallen Warriors" here in Burbank, CA. Like Ox, the book ain't pretty, and the grammar is a little bit off, but it reminds me of the old programs from the 1970's so I completely forgive it.

Basically it's a cookbook of his specialties with tributes to wrestlers he knew or admired over the years. It's a pretty heart-felt (or heart-punched) effort, in my opinion. As a collector of cookbooks and serious cook, on top of being a wrestling fan, I had to buy this. At first glance everything seems to be copacetic, recipe-wise. I'm going to try out his meatloaf tonight, and I'll post here if anybody is interested about the quality of his recipes. (I have a sneaking suspicion I will be pleased with the results.)

If anybody out there would like a copy, I'd be more than happy to get you one. The cover cost is $20 -- not cheap, but these independant books usually go for that much -- and we can work out the rest. Just e-mail me.
-- Kurt

PS: He says he has a second book in the making called "Grill We Must!"

Hey, the meatloaf ain't bad! Ox has an extreme love of garlic -- heaps and heaps of it -- which doesn't offend me in the least.

Are the dishes mostly hearty fare? I can't really see Ox Baker sitting down to dine on quiche and small tossed salad.

Who are some of the wrestlers that he writes about in the book?

Yes, a lot of hearty cooking from the Ox, and some not so rich. Recipes include: Mushroom-stuffed chicken breasts, scrambled eggs with garlic (for Big John Studd), chili, beef & barley soup, Italian cream pie (for Rick Rude), hot tamale pie.

Wrestler tributes -- and plenty of them -- include Bobo Brazil, The Wild Duseks, Dick the Bruiser, Cowboy Bob Ellis, Joe LeDuc, Adrian Adonis and Owen Hart. Ox says that his eyebrow and moustache look was a suggestion of Jonathan Boyd's, and he says piont blank that Boyd made him. The book is very sweet -- he said he didn't want to say anything nasty to sell a few extra copies, and I really respect that.

So . . . what was the Bobo tribute recipe? Something involving coconuts or cocoa, I presume?

And in honor of the author, somewhere in there should be a "baked oxen" dish . . .
