Do you know who’s in the Super Bowl? Don’t answer that question, because it doesn’t really matter. The only thing you really need to be concerned with at this point in the week is what you’ll be eating when the big game rolls around this Sunday.
We’ve got some ideas from our friends at Food52, and you could definitely win the day by making this Doritos Chicken. But when the stakes are this high, it can also be good to go to the pros. So we hit up some big-name chefs—including Michael White, Alexandra Guarnaschelli, and Bill Telepan—to find out who they’ve got their money on this year’s Super Bowl, and more importantly, what they’ll be cooking.
And here’s a little bonus for those of you in New York City: You can try grub from all of these chefs—and a whole lot more—at a massive, football-themed culinary event called the 50 Yard Lounge that will be taking place at One Penn Plaza (right across from Madison Square Garden) from January 29-February 2. Check out 50yardlounge.com for a full rundown of events, which include cooking demos, athlete appearances (Doug Flutie!), and star-studded tastings like the Burger Bowl and a Steak and Bloody Mary Brunch.
Here, we find out what some of your favorite chefs will be cooking for this year’s big game.
