Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Moose, food editor and reporter for the Raleigh News & Observer and author of Deviled Eggs, tells it like it is when she says, " all fervent sports fans know, the day truly is won or lost in the tailgate." Bringing together more than 100 game-day recipes, Moose gives her readers a serious advantage over any challengers. Dishes run the gamut from simple fried onion blossoms (Jo Ann's Campfire style) to sophisticated Marinated Gamecocks with Polenta to regional staples like Sweet Potato Ham Biscuits, Mint Juleps and brats. It wouldn't be game day without chicken wings, and Moose offers teriyaki, tandoori and spice-rubbed variations as well as smoky, mustard-dressed wings that can be prepared in a slow cooker. Many recipes can be prepped or made in advance, such as Munchable Marinated Shrimp, four kinds of chili (including a lentil-based vegetarian) and a spicy coleslaw that gets a kick from jalapenos and cayenne. And with desserts like Bourban-Pecan Pie (not to mention three types of Bloody Marys) to pick up a despondent fan, this cookbook will make for a successful season no matter what the home team does on the field.

About the Author

Debbie Moose is a freelance writer, cookbook author, and teacher of writing and cooking classes. Her monthly column “Sunday Dinner” has appeared in the Raleigh News & Observer since 1998. Her work has also appeared in Southern Living, and one of her essays was selected for the inaugural edition of Cornbread Nation 1: The Best of Southern Food Writing, compiled by the Southern Foodways Alliance. She is a former food editor of the Raleigh News & Observer.
 
Moose grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with parents who tended such a large vegetable garden that they never had to buy canned vegetables or tomato sauce. There, Moose learned about the wonderful flavor of fresh ingredients. She earned her degree in journalism from The University of North Carolina and began working as a reporter, first for the Salisbury Post and then for the News & Observer. She combined her interests in food and writing as the editor of the News & Observer’s food section for seven years, during which time it was twice named best section in the U.S. for its circulation category by the Association of Food Journalists.
 
Moose is now a national-award-winning freelance writer. She has also been recognized for her volunteer work at a Raleigh agency that assists victims of domestic violence, where she is a counselor. She has taught several cooking classes and writing workshops, and volunteers with a literacy organization to teach English as a second language. An ardent college basketball fan since childhood, Moose lives with her husband in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I find it a little hard to believe that most of us are going to bring this much stuff to an actual tailgate party. The recipes are good, but most of them require a lot of ingredients and steps for preparation. This is fine for say, a Super Bowl party, where you have your whole kitchen to cook in and a big fridge to keep the stuff in once it done...I don't see keeping a lot of this stuff in a cooler or cooking on a bbq grill the size of a shoebox in a parking lot. As i said before the recipes are GOOD, there's no doubt that they are delicious, but the book is more than likely going to be purchased by someone that wants recipes for tailgate parties (in which case, it can be a little to....erm...."yuppified")...still, a good reference if you want ideas for cooking in general!

Fan Fare is not only a great collection of recipes for your next big game, but it is also an entertaining read with fun anecdotes from various tailgating locations (College football games, hockey games, NASCAR races, etc.).

I would recommend the book highly based on the collection of recipes alone, the stories in the book make it even more enjoyable.

Format: Hardcover
We bought this one expecting hand-held food, chips & dip, grilled ribs, brats, wings, etc. & were disappointed to find 'very veggie lentil chili' that "even meat-eating fans will be satisfied with" and ground turkey nachos (actual recipe is idiotically called "gobble 'em up nachos") "lower in fat--but don't tell the fellas..."

The title of the book sort of tricked me; just about anything seems to be included; I like cornbread, I like pumpkin mini-muffins, I like baked apples -- but what makes them tailgating foods?

Two stars because the recipes seem fine, they won't kill you, & a couple of them, say pickled okra roll ups, struck me as something I'd like to try. There are a few decent-looking dips, a few chowders, some classic drink recipes.

But please: "crusty bread & tossed salad" for the superbowl? Sounds like no fun at all.

Or 'shrimp and couscous salad'-- I think it seems too fussy for a tailgate, too sloppy for the 'game at home'

The writing in between & introducing the recipes is bouncy & upbeat, but so much so as to come off as breathlessly trying too hard. It also seems remarkably un-informed about sporting events--noon kickoffs & Sunday basketball tournaments are kind of an exception. The Nascar fans that I know would be seriously annoyed with me if the 'assorted microbrews' that Ms. Moose suggests for the daytona 500 didn't include at least one macrobrew...

By the way: thanks for the metric-conversion chart tucked in there just before the index -- but none of the recipes are metric...what the heck is it there for?

All you need is Debbie Moose's book FAN FARE to put together a perfect picnic. Debbie's writing style is pleasing and the directions for making the yummy eats are precise. It will make you want to throw open the tailgate of your truck in your driveway at home and have a few friends over. Who needs a game? No truck? How about a quilt on the lawn? Any excuse to cook up some of these recipes.
