Create epic feasts for game days at home with this full-color cookbook from former NFL star and celebrity chef Eddie Jackson that includes 100 fresh and inventive recipes for tailgating at home.
There’s nothing like day full of football and great food. While many fans tailgate on game days—gathering in the stadium parking lot to grill and eat with family and friends—the real fun of the weekend for former pro-football star and celebrity chef Eddie Jackson is “homegating”: throwing a party in your own living room or den. With homegating, the party doesn’t have to stop once the game starts.
Game-Day Eats combines Eddie’s two greatest passions—cooking and football—in one hearty cook’s playbook. Eddie gives you more than 100 recipes centered around eating, drinking, and spending time with friends while enjoying the game at home. The key to a great homegate is food that can be cooked while spending time with your guests. Because you’re cooking in your own kitchen, you can go way beyond brats, chili, and cheeseburgers. With Game-Day Eats you can enjoy mouthwatering Roasted Tomatillo Nachos and Spicy Pesto Wings as well as fun surprises like Citrus Beer Floats and Eddie’s patented Savory Pizza Bombs.
Eddie shows how anyone at any culinary skill level can create festive feasts any day of the week. Each inventive and hearty recipe includes steps that can be done ahead of time or prepped very quickly so that you don’t miss a play—whether your gathering for a traditional Sunday afternoon or for a weeknight game. With influences from his pro days, his culinary escapades, and his NFL buddies like Ken Hamlin and Quinton Caver, the food in Game-Day Eats is sure to win over your favorite crowd.
Game-Day Eats is illustrated with 150-175 full color photos throughout.
