• Andrew Zimmern’s Super Bowl Guide


My Best Super Bowl Recipes

Of course I’m disappointed the Vikings won’t be winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy on their home turf, but I am thankful for an amazing season and ready to welcome the world to Minnesota for Super Bowl 52 and the best week of events in NFL history. If you didn’t score tickets to the big game, invite friends and family over to watch the Patriots take on the Eagles surrounded by an epic football feast. I love the traditional nacho and chicken wing spread, alongside dishes inspired by my travels—from fried chicken summer rolls to Baltimore-style crab cakes. If you’re really ambitious, go all out and construct the ultimate Super Bowl snackadium.
