Before you know it, kick-off on one of the biggest Sundays of the year will be here. This is an exciting time around the country as people begin to plan their parties and, more importantly, their menus.
The biggest game of the year is rooted in a deep culinary tradition that has grown tremendously since it was first played almost 50 years ago. America is a country rich in food culture, and this year’s focus will be on cities that are great examples of this delicious diversity.
There is more to San Francisco than Fisherman’s Wharf. The Pacific Ocean’s bounty led to the creation of San Francisco’s famous seafood stew: Cioppino. Cioppino is a combination of the seafood catch of the day with tomatoes in a wine sauce.
Back on the East Coast, New England clam chowder isn’t just a Campbell’s Chunky soup best-seller; it’s a culinary symbol for the entire region. Fresh seafood dishes are a part of the New England culture: what would summer time be without a traditional clam boil or lobster roll?
When people think Seattle, they almost certainly think of coffee. However, the waters of the Pacific Northwest produce some of the best oysters and wild salmon available. Did you know Dungeness crabs are named after the port of Dungeness, Washington?
Of course your tailgate or party wouldn’t be complete without a few cold ones. Colorado has a long history producing some of America’s most celebrated beers. These days, the beer scene continues to grow and is boasting an ever-increasing presence of craft breweries.
As we get closer to the big game, it’s a great bet that these rival cities have something delicious to share! Enjoy!
