Completely authorized by NBC Sports, The Sunday Night Football Cookbook marries two great American institutions—food and football. With more than 150 delicious recipes from America’s top chefs, NFL players and alumni, and NBC Sports’ all-star on-air team, the book is an easy-to-use playbook for making the ultimate football meal.
Team by team and city by city, The Sunday Night Football Cookbook celebrates the special dishes, unique flavors, and most famous chefs of the NFL’s 31 cities (and Honolulu, where the Pro Bowl is held). Recipes range from local favorites like Seared Tequila Chicken from Eddie Matney’s Restaurant in Phoenix to decadent desserts like Chef Tobin McAfee’s Double Loving Chocolate Spoonful served at Sir Edmond Halley’s in Charlotte, NC.
Among the all-star chefs contributing recipes are Daniel Boulud, Jean-Robert de Cavel, Christopher Wilson, Susan Goss, and others. Also adding their favorite recipes are former NFL players—including Cowboy Chad Hennings, Kansas City Chief Bobby Bell, and Viking Carl Eller—and stars from the NBC Sports team, including John Madden, Tiki Barber, and Bob Costas.
These aren’t your run-of-the-mill tailgating recipes, though: The Sunday Night Football Cookbook redefines football food, transforming traditional dishes into super-tasty recipes and adding the nation’s regional tastes to the gameday table.
