Inside The Kitchen’s Snackadium, Plus Game-Day Snack Recipes

by in Recipes, Shows, January 25th, 2014

The Kitchen Co-HostsJust in time for next week’s big game, the co-hosts on The Kitchen — along with Rob Del Balzo, a caterer — created a super snack platter worthy of not just any tailgate but the ultimate football showdown. This “snackadium,” modeled after a traditional football stadium, was almost overflowing with classic and creative munchies alike, including fresh vegetables, crackers and pretzels, plus pigs in blankets and Jeff’s meaty mortadella sandwiches.

In true stadium fashion, this snack amphitheater came complete with a scaled-down JumboTron — a tablet that broadcast the co-hosts — and a map of sections that detailed where each snack would sit.

      My daughter and her roommates would love to help you since that's where the idea came from! A Rep from The Food Network saw theirs on a social media site, contacted them, asked questions ad askedn for pictures. Their version is totally edible and no mention or any of the pictures were shown on the show like they were told that they would be!
