Is there a difference between a picnic and a tailgate party? Well, yes and no. Picnics are mostly thought of as summer fare (both the food and the event) with meals typically built around already prepared dishes that can easily be transported. Tailgate parties are often associated with autumn sporting events, and the menu often includes lots of grilled meats. In 200 Picnic & Tailgate Dishes you'll find classic picnic recipes such as old-fashioned potato salad, fried chicken, sandwiches, coleslaw, grilling meat, chicken, and fish, as well as drinks (with and without alcohol), and recipes for desserts. With more than 100 full-color photographs of the dishes plus tips on preparing food in advance and safe ways to get the food from the kitchen to the car, this book is truly the only compendium of picnic and tailgate recipes you'll ever need.
