Is this the year to throw a Super Bowl party?
It’s gotta be. Because sometimes you just have to admit – the Yanks sure know how to have a good time.
So, what’s the score with a Super Bowl party?
Well first off, don’t worry about the score, you’ll never be able to work it out. Just go along for the ride and enjoy the thrills and spills as they happen. It’s about the party, so get some mates, load up on goodies and have a good time.
How should you theme it?
Here’s the real reason to throw a Super Bowl party. Americans do awesome food. Super Bowl 53 is being held in Atlanta, Georgia. We recommend going with a selection of ‘Deep South’ style goodies to match.
What to cook up?
Go crazy, go big, go for bold flavours. It’s definitely the time to bust out your ActiFry and rustle up some southern style chicken. While you’re at it you can whip up some popcorn too, great for nibbles during the game. Yams are a big deal in the south. This recipe from Jamie Oliver is spot on. To add a southern twist, try Memphis seasoning instead of Jamie’s recommended spices.
What’s for dessert?
We reckon in the sweet stakes you should honour the state of Georgia. In the states, Georgia goes with peaches in the same way that Somerset goes with cider in the UK. Which is why you’ll find the Georgia Peach Council offers the perfect recipe for a Peach Cobbler. While we’re talking baking, if you’re not too handy in the bake-off department, you should really check out one of our newest kitchen appliances, the Tefal Cake Factory. It makes baking a doddle.
Food sorted, what about drinks?
Well, the classics are hard to ignore here. There are some pretty well-known red and white brands in the cola and beer department, they pretty much have to be on hand. That’s obvious though, and you’ll want to be whipping up something special for your guests. Sticking with the Southern theme, freakshakes with bourbon it is. Bound to go down a treat. Also, freakshake-making is the perfect excuse to upgrade your blender – obviously Tefal has you covered for the ultimate blender experience.
Eats sorted, who’s actually playing?
This year it’s the exciting showdown between the New England Patriots and the LA Rams. You’ve got to hand it to them, it does sound cooler than Tranmere Rovers. Also, this year’s half time show (always an amazing extravaganza) will be headlined by Maroon 5. So there’s that to look forward to as well.
When’s kick off?
Here’s the thing, it starts at 2245 on the good old beeb. A bit late, but not so bad? Well, it’s not scheduled to finish until 4am. Nope, we don’t know what they’re doing for all that time either. Clearly, you’d have to be bonkers to do that to yourself, unless you’re a total hardcore fan. So don’t. Watch it on the iPlayer at a sociable time. Don’t worry about your guests seeing the score, it’s Super Bowl, no-one in the UK will even know they played it. The important thing is you’ll have had an excuse to use all your favourite kitchen gadgets and all your guests will be too busy enjoying your amazing food and drink to notice… touchdown!
