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.

  1. What a cute idea for a book. That would be great for kids who love sports and are just learning to cook.

  2. Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out to the park. Buy me some sushi and hamburgers.....

  3. What a fun book! It also sounds like it would be dangerous to read on an empty stomach and not want to run into the kitchen and whip up garlic fries, Coney dogs, and pecan pie bites. Yum! ;-)

  4. I'm getting hungry just thinking about ball park food!

  5. This is the kind of book that would make me binge-eat, I think. It sounds really nice to read about the different food choices across ball parks in the US. Thanks for sharing.
