Title: Ballpark Eats: Recipes Inspired by America’s Baseball Stadiums

Author: Katrina Jorgensen

Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine, Children's Nonfiction, Baseball

Book Blurb:

Forget peanuts and Cracker Jacks! America’s Ballparks now offer a dizzying array of edible options. These make-like stadium recipes give young chefs and sports fans a culinary road trip at home. From the famous fish tacos at the Giants’s AT&T Park in San Francisco to the mouth-watering Cuban sandwich at the Tampa Bay Rays’s Tropicana Field, these diamond dishes are perfect for any seventh-inning stretch. Produced in partnership with Sports Illustrated Kids.

My Review:

Baseball and food go hand in hand like hot dogs and mustard. Ballpark Eats is a fantastic cookbook, perfect for kids of all ages. Each chapter highlights a baseball stadium and three regional recipes. From the Boston hot dog at Fenway to the cheddar-bacon stuffed burger at Target Field, each recipe is easy to make with simple instructions kids can follow. The cookbook is filled with full-color photographs and graphics, which kids will love, too.

My favorite part, though, is the fun trivia and quizzes throughout the book. The Condiment Quiz was fun as was the Mustard Bullpen.

As a baseball and food lover, I loved this book! I highly recommend it and it makes a fantastic gift.
