  • This sequel to the popular 2004 release Cookin’ with Cocky features an original collection of tailgating recipes culled together from throngs of longtime University of South Carolina Gamecock fans. Former USC and NFL player Alex Hawkins and his wife Charlie have once again assembled an unmatched feast of appetizers, entrees, and desserts ranging from the exquisitely delectable to the outrageously odd. Likewise, their fellow contributors run the gambit from South Carolina luminaries Steve Spurrier, Bob Fulton, Joe Pinner, and a pantheon of USC football greats to average fans with an above-average devotion to the game and the tailgating culture that accompanies it. Throughout the volume, the steadfast spirit, lively humor, and unique culinary talents of diehard Gamecock fans permeate every colorful page. "My wife, Charlie, can make a tennis shoe taste good. She has been cooking for me for almost twenty years, and I have been trying to get her to write a cookbook for almost that long. In 2003 a friend of mine from Georgia compiled a cookbook for the Georgia Bulldog fans. It did well. ‘Alex,’ he said, ‘you need to write one for the Gamecock fans—let them win three games, and they'll buy anything that is Garnet and Black.’ So in 2004 I got on the phone and started calling my friends, soliciting recipes from these avid Gamecock fans. I got two hundred and fifty recipes in less than six weeks. Charlie added fifty of her best recipes, and we had Cookin' with Cocky. Here it is, 2006, and we have Cookin' with Cocky II. It is done in a similar spirit, but all new recipes and many new donors. It is more than a cookbook, and every bit as entertaining, with even better, tastier recipes. It is a must for serious Gamecock fans everywhere."—Alex Hawkins
