    New Cookbook Combines Football And Food With Recipes For Each Professional Football Team

    New Cookbook Combines Football And Food With Recipes For Each Professional Football Team

    Author, John T. Guseman is pleased to announce the promotion of his book, Driveway Chef’s Cookbook for the Football Season: A Deep Frying Cookbook.

    In his book, Guseman expertly blends his two loves: cooking and football. He creates a fun book filled with recipes linked to each of the 32 professional football teams.

    Friends and family have been congregating in Guseman’s garage to watch football on Sundays for years. He would bring out his deep fryer and attempt to cook up anything available, including chicken wings, avocados and leftover pizza. His persona as “The Driveway Chef” grew as did his variety of foods to fry. Guseman wanted to expand his fried food repertoire, and attempted to use a food item associated with every football team. This cookbook has 68 deep-frying recipes inspired by each team or city that make up the 32 professional football teams.. Examples include deep-fried cheese curds for the Green Bay Packers, deep-fried pickles representing the Pittsburgh Steelers and deep-fried cheesecake and deep-fried jersey street dogs from New York City’s two football teams. Guseman enjoys the family and friendship that surround his cooking escapades, and hopes his readers do the same. He believes his book can provide the humor and creativity that is the real inspiration for this collection of gridiron grub.

    “I want readers to perceive this book as a lighthearted and helpful resource to inspire the menu at all of their football parties and celebrations. It would be a great gift no matter what team the football-lover in your life is rooting for. It’s a unique and thoughtful option for the football fan or fried-food fan,” Guseman says.
