Late fall through winter, it seems, that sports fans can’t get enough of their favorite teams. Of course, watching a game isn’t complete without a tailgate party, or a * spread in front of the television. Generally, the food served isn’t froufrou food; rather, it’s hearty, stick to the ribs, man-food. Calorie counting is not allowed, and eating too much is part of the ritual. While some sports fans serve the same foods over and over, Daina Falk’s excellent cookbook, The Hungry Fan's Game Day Cookbook: 165 Recipes for Eating, Drinking & Watching Sports includes new, innovative and luscious dishes to serve sports fans on any occasion.

The book is well organized, and the layout is cleverly laced with sports jargon and top-of-the-line pictures throughout. The best part, of course, is the amazing variety of fabulous dishes that will make any sports fan swoon, even if his team happens to be losing. Above each recipe is an explanation, story, or vignette, which makes the book fun to read. There are hints on making some of the dishes a little healthier without ruining them, and the recipes are unique and innovative. No recipes for mini hot dogs with barbecue sauce, or frozen Buffalo wings – the recipes are for hearty dishes people (men, women, sports fans, and everyone else) will actually want to eat. The Bacon Hummus is incredible and not to be missed. If you don’t try the Peanut Butter and Bacon Burgers, you’ll really be the loser. There are easy-to-follow recipes for dips, chicken wings, sliders, burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, and nachos in flavors you’ve never dreamed of, and hearty desserts like Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey’s Frosting which have become a favorite (and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, too).

This book is highly recommended for anyone who likes to cook good food for sports events. Most of the recipes are easy and many have minimal ingredients. There are enough recipes to keep everyone busy throughout the entire sports season.
