Ballpark Eats is a delightful cookbook with beautiful pictures, baseball stadium facts, and interesting baseball trivia. The best part, however, is the fact that Katrina Jorgensen, the author, has toured baseball stadiums throughout America and included recipes for unique foods offered at each one. While most of us, who don’t attend baseball games often, assume we’ll be eating a hot dog, peanuts, and perhaps Cracker Jack at the next baseball game, this book lets us in on the fact that there are dozens of much better options, depending on which stadium you happen to visit.

Ballpark Eats is presented as a kid’s cookbook for ages 9-15 years, but I think it’s a great book for cooks of all ages. The recipes are simple, concise, and easy to follow, so everyone can make the mouthwatering dishes that are included. There are recipes for several regional varieties of hot dogs, but also sliders – Bratwurst Sliders, Philly Steak Sliders, Crab Cake Sliders – and Canada’s famous dish, Poutine. There are also snacks such as Cheese Puffs, Parmesan Garlic Popcorn, and Pretzel Twists. Also included are fabulous beverages like Watermelon Lemonade and Orange Dream Punch. Desserts include Mini Boston Cream Pies, Apple Blondies with Maple Glaze, and Pecan Pie Bites.

The recipes are perfect for making at home for parties and get-togethers, as well as for watching games on television. It will be difficult to decide which recipe to make first, and most cooks will probably make several at a time.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this cookbook.
