We took a quick sprint down the food aisles of cyberspace to see what food web sites are serving up for Super Bowl party planners.
Here’s a quick play list of what we found.
Food Network gets the party started with a big impressive Super Bowl Party page with complete party menus from Food Network’s top chefs, lots of party tips, an awesome collection of Super Bowl recipes and fun entertaining â€˜how-toâ€™ videos. You can even order a football stadium-shaped bundt cake pan from the on-line Food Network store.
Epicurious has teamed up with 24 current and former NFL players for a Taste of the NFL promotion to help fight hunger. Each NFL star presents one of his personal favorite recipes. Site visitors can vote for their favorite NFL player recipe and support a good cause.
Chow features a menu entitled Tex-Mex Style Game Day Grub in its Entertaining section, with make-ahead recipes with lots of big colorful pictures, a fun sundae station and signature drinks to get the party kicked off.
Food and Wine features a Super Bowl Blowout menu excerpted from its February ’08 magazine issue. It’s loaded with recipes ranging from Hearty Chipotle Pork Chili to lighter fare such as Lump Crab Meat Salsa served with thick-cut potato chips. F&W also spotlights an extensive listing of beer and food pairings to complete the menu.
Just in case you missed it, our site has a fabulous feature on building an impressive spread of Super Day delights with recipes that won’t knock you to the turf. Plus, we offer an article and recipes from guest chef Phillip Andriano that are on the lighter side.
