TASTE OF THE TOWN is based off the enormously popular segment by the same name, that airs during Todd Blackledge’s weekly college football telecasts on ESPN. It profiles a college-football-town eatery and the homespun food and colorful characters that make each local institution so special.
In TASTE OF THE TOWN, Todd will focus on popular college towns by telling readers where to eat, what to eat, and great stories about college football traditions across America. Combined with recipes from the coach (or wife) of the hometown team and from the chef of the featured restaurants, every reader will be left hungry and excited to try out the popular football food for themselves.
Behind-the-scenes photos, shot on location, enhance the energy of the fun and food featured in each town. This book about football, food and college culture showcases the coaches, players, chefs, servers, and rabid fans who have joined together to talk about their common passion.
