Tailgating triumphs can be found in The Tailgating Cookbook: Recipes for the Big Game by Bob Sloan, charmingly designed and laced with tailgating tales and onsite photos of the fare and the folks. And Bob's fare is top-notch: his Chicken and Chorizo Empanadas have impressed serious steak-eating Giants fans and svelte Manhattan soccer moms; Red Wine Rib Eyes with Mixed Pepper Salsa is a knockout developed by James Lupo, winner of the 2004 NASCAR Crew Chef Challenge; Tailgate Gumbo served at LSU games can warm chilled Northerners, too; and the chilies, kabobs, stews, sides and sweets are all winners no matter whom you're rooting for. Bob takes you through at-home and tailgate-site prep and makes life beyond burgers and brats a fun-filled reality.
