Ballparks have come a long way, baby. Sure, it's still easy to get a hot dog and a pretzel at your local ballpark, but Home Plate: From Hot Dogs to Haute Cuisine, shows just how many culinary bases are rounded in modern ballparks all over the country that are serviced by sports and entertainment giant Delaware North Companies.
The recipes feature regional favorites and sophisticated fare. Check out the Cleveland Bomber, a wrapped up, kickier take on the Philly cheesesteak found at Cleveland Indians Progressive Field. Also noteworthy: Cincinnati Chili, laced with cinnamon and served over spaghetti, from Great American Ball Park, and Eggplant Rollatini from Detroit's Comerica Park.
With photography as gorgeous as that first spring day, the coffee-table-style book takes readers on a virtual tour of ballparks across the country. Descriptions and fan trivia from each ballpark make this book a winner for anyone who loves sports and food.
