The Southern Tailgating Cookbook
Featuring 110 vibrant recipes inspired by the author's many tailgating tours, this new cookbook presents vibrant color photographs and essential preparation instructions. Recipes cover a full day of game-day meals, with both simple and extravagant dishes that range from Sunshine Muffins and Chicken-Sweet Potato Kabobs to Zesty Arugula and Kale Salad, and Deep-Fried Cookie Dough. Tailgating enthusiast Taylor Mathis supplies readers with drink recipes as well, such as Lime-Cooler Punch, along with day-before checklists, advice on packing and setup and food safety information. Mathis, who lives in Charlotte, also includes humorous rundowns on unique southern football traditions, from fans' game-day attire and hand signals to the music of the marching bands.
