Fan Fare includes favorites from around the country, from Jo Ann's Campfire Onion Blossoms--popular at NASCAR races, where tailgating often turns into a days-long campout--to bratwurst prepared just the way Green Bay Packers fans like it. It's organized into five chapters that cover every party of the game day feast: Kickoff (appetizers and snacks), Bowl Games (soups, beans, and chili), Hot Streak (entrées), Pit Stops (salads, sides, breakfast, and brunch), and Overtime (desserts and drinks).
Moose has also included all the important tips for an impromptu home party or a carefully planned on-site tailgate, with information on food transport and safety, outdoor cooking techniques, suggested menus, and a calendar of sporting events, so there s a great excuse for a tailgate party any time of the year.
Debbie Moose, a lifelong college basketball fan, is also an award-winning freelance writer, cooking and writing teacher, and the author of Deviled Eggs. She was food editor and a reporter at the Raleigh News & Observer for many years.
