Forget peanuts and Cracker Jacks! America s Ballparks now offer a dizzying array of edible options. These make-like stadium recipes give young chefs and sports fans a culinary road trip at home. From the famous fish tacos at the Giants s AT&T Park in San Francisco to the mouthwatering Cuban sandwich at the Tampa Bay Rays s Tropicana Field, these diamond dishes are perfect for any seventh-inning stretch. Produced in partnership with Sports Illustrated KIDS."
Yummy…….what a wonderful choice of the great fare found at America’s Ballparks. Cleveland Indians offer Parmesan Garlic Popcorn and Nutty Chocolate Drizzle Popcorn, Detroit Tigers offer Coney Dogs. I can remember visiting my relatives in Michigan and going to the A&W to have my first Coney Dogs (nothing like it on the west coast) The Minnesota Twins have Cheddar Bacon Stuffed Burgers (boy the picture looks good) Seattle Mariners – sushi is a little much for me ,but the Texas Rangers Pecan Pie Bites look like the go down sweet.
As you move the National League side of things New York Mets offer Garlic Fries (but I believe the best are still offered by the Giants with fresh garlic from Gilroy), San Francisco Giants offering up a Caribbean Rice Bowl (Cha-Cha). Milwaukee Brewers and their Bratwurst Sliders (sign me up please), Philadelphia Phillies offer a Philly Cheesesteak Sliders (wouldn’t expect anything else.)
The great think is the recipes to make all these fine parks foods and tidbits about some of the teams most popular players and what some of liked to eat – Chicken anyone (Wade Boggs – Foul Tips). Some stadiums have food stands names after players or some Players have opened up their own resturants and have stand at the ballparks.
