Fan Fare: A Playbook of Great Recipes for Tailgating or Watching the Game at Home

Debbie Moose, Author Harvard Common Press $14.95 (163p) ISBN 978-1-55832-338-4
Moose, food editor and reporter for the Raleigh News & Observer and author of Deviled Eggs, tells it like it is when she says, "" all fervent sports fans know, the day truly is won or lost in the tailgate."" Bringing together more than 100 game-day recipes, Moose gives her readers a serious advantage over any challengers. Dishes run the gamut from simple fried onion blossoms (Jo Ann's Campfire style) to sophisticated Marinated Gamecocks with Polenta to regional staples like Sweet Potato Ham Biscuits, Mint Juleps and brats. It wouldn't be game day without chicken wings, and Moose offers teriyaki, tandoori and spice-rubbed variations as well as smoky, mustard-dressed wings that can be prepared in a slow cooker. Many recipes can be prepped or made in advance, such as Munchable Marinated Shrimp, four kinds of chili (including a lentil-based vegetarian) and a spicy coleslaw that gets a kick from jalapenos and cayenne. And with desserts like Bourban-Pecan Pie (not to mention three types of Bloody Marys) to pick up a despondent fan, this cookbook will make for a successful season no matter what the home team does on the field.
