Most Helpful Customer Reviews
THE HUNGRY FAN'S GAME DAY COOKBOOK by Daina Falk is the perfect cookbook for any sports fan. I enjoyed Daina Falk’s introduction. Her father was a sports agent. Thus, she literally grew up around sports. She tells the story of how she came up with the “Hungry Fan” website, in addition to some other interesting background information. I love the concept of this cookbook. Many of the recipe contributors are athletes; in those recipes, Falk wrote a paragraph about that contributor. She also has Tasty Tidbits information about various athletes. Being a Chicagoan, one of my favorite contributors is Michael Jordan. I love Daina’s story about the chocolate-chip cookies. I also enjoy the Jordan’s Meat-Lover’s Flatbread recipe. The book is nicely laid out and easy to follow. It is full of beautiful images. She gives great tips throughout the book. The recipes are wonderful. I love that she includes condiment recipes if you want to get away from the preservatives in store bought brands. This is an excellent cookbook for any kitchen. It would make a great gift for any sports fan. I could easily see this as a go-to gift for my friends and family. Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
