Bring home all the flavors and excitement of game day thanks to a lifetime of tailgating wisdom from James Beard Award winner and Top Chef Masters contestant John Currence.
John Currence is one of the most celebrated and beloved chefs in America, but he’s also a tailgating fanatic. For years he has prepared fans to go into battle before football games on his home turf in Oxford, Mississippi, supplying them with dishes that go way beyond the expected burgers and hot dogs. In Tailgreat he makes his case that tailgating food can be so much more than sad store-bought dips and chips, as we celebrate the spirit of coming together with friends and family to support a common cause: our team. The dishes are flavor-packed hits like Korean BBQ Wings, Grilled Corn Guacamole, Sweet Mustard Pulled Pork, and NOLA Roast Beef Po’Boy Bites. With these recipes you will surely lead your team, or at least your next meal, to victory.
