In anticipation of the battle between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Lauren Slaked, assistant editor at Epicurious.com, asked Ron Kiosk, vice president of culinary for Chicago’s Levy Restaurants and the caterer for Super Bowl XLIII, to share his menu for fans at home.
Yes, for your game day pleasure, Kiosk and Epicurious make seven official Super Bowl recipes available for fans, including: Tampa Dogs, Lech on-Asada Cuban-Style Cuban Roast Pork, Jerk Chicken Wings, Cuban sandwich, Gulf-Coast Shrimp Salad Sandwich, Blue Crab Dip, and Florida Strawberry Crisp
Krivosik will be there on game day, supervising the kitchens, and these foods will be served in the suites, restaurants, and general concessions at the stadium. Catering the Super Bowl is a major undertaking. Raymond James Stadium in Tampa where the game is being played holds 65,857 people and has nearly 200 suites, as well as a couple restaurants and 93 concession stands and portable operations. With all those hungry fans, Levy Restaurants is making a lot of food. In fact, their projections for how much food they will sell are a bit staggering: 55,200 hot dogs,14,500 burgers, 2,250 pounds of beef short ribs, 32,400 slices of pizza, 107,250 pieces of chicken tenders, 2,500 pounds of shrimp, lobster, oysters, and crab, and 12,000 pieces of assorted desserts.
