Forget the foie gras and the wine.Were talking about authentic, stick-to-your-ribs football food. Sizzling bratwurst grilled to perfection, the way they like em in Wisconsin. Steamy pots of spicy Texas chili and hearty Louisiana gumbo. Maybe some Peanut Butter Buckeyes or a slice of Commodore Chess Pie. All washed down, of course, with one of those great cocktails that Florida and Georgia fans mix up so well.

Good stuff! I got this book because I’m a really big college football fan and I like the idea of learning how to cook better, but, truth be told, I’m not really very good at it. (I’ve never tailgated in my life, but love the bbq!) There are good tips in it for beginners without it feeling like the writer is talking down to you and the recipes that I’ve done have all come out GREAT without a lot of fuss. And the little sidebars by the ESPN guys are really funny, so I even read the whole thing. Who sits down and reads a COOKBOOK? Well, this one you can. I recommend it highly.

POT ROAST! With a foreword by Mike Golic, former NFL and Notre Dame defensive tackle, now of Mike & Mike fame, this book starts off perfectly. Nothing fancy should be at tailgates, and ketchup doesn’t belong on a brat (Golic agrees). The rest of the 174 pages of this magnum opus to tailgating do not disappoint.The entire production of Gameday Gourmet is perfect for the sports fan. Both the recipes and technicalities of tailgating are broken down like box scores. Nothing complicated, and very in order. The guide is not, however, stuffy and purely regurgitated ingredients; in fact, there is a ton of humor within. If it’s not the “All-Time Tailgating Team” (e.g. Porkchop Womack, Refrigerator Perry, Jerry Rice, Jack Ham), it’s the creatively named dishes and the sidebars with helpful information about the intricacies of pregame events.More than a simple recipe book, there are guides for the novice tailgater. What to bring, how to cook it, what’s essential for set up,…

Great gift for college football fan! My husband and brother-in-law are both huge college football fans and love to cook so this was perfect for them. Love the way the book addresses individual teams instead of just lumping the usual tailgating favs together. Also liked having the commentators I’m used to seeing throw their 2 cents in. Would definitely recommend to friends!
