GoodReads: The daughter of legendary sports agent David Falk, Daina Falk spent her early years around pro athletes. Today, her love of sports is matched only by her passion for food. As the original Hungry Fan®, Daina celebrates game day cooking at its best, from pulled pork sandwiches at the tailgate to sky-high stadium chili at home.
In The Hungry Fan's Game Day Cookbook, Daina presents more than 100 crowd-pleasing recipes to jazz up your tailgate and score points with any home game-watching guest. Discover fresh takes on classics like Buffalo wings, sliders, and layered dips, alongside delicious dishes inspired by local fan traditions. Daina also enlisted a dream team of athletes including LeBron James, Boomer Esiason, Victoria Azarenka, and Dikembe Mutombo to contribute their signature recipes to the mix.
Featuring tips on planning menus, packing snacks, and finding top stadium eats, plus fun facts, team trivia, and Daina's memories of growing up on the sidelines, this fan-friendly cookbook is an all-access pass to the ultimate game day experience.
Mine: I love this type of cookbook:
Starters – Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Skewers, Bacon Guacamole
Soups, Salads, Flatbreads – Not a big soup fan, so kind of skipped that part, Grilled Caesar Salad, Stuffed-crust Flatbread
Sandwiches & Burgers –Sweet & Savory Prosciutto Grilled Cheese (not sure about the pumpkin butter) , Texas Toast Brisket Sandwich, BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers/w Fried Onions
BBQ & other Mains
Desserts – Peanut Butter Cracker Jack S’mores (I might take out the PB)
Basic - mayo, mustard, ketchup
The photos are great and make some of the foods look even yummier. Who knew “fangating” was a party waiting to happen? Made me hungry reading some of the recipes.
It was great to see that there were sports stars that contributed some of their favorite recipes.
