Recipes from Tailgreat

John Currence is one of the most celebrated and beloved chefs in America, but he’s also a tailgating fanatic. For years he has prepared fans to go into battle before football games on his home turf in Oxford, Mississippi, supplying them with dishes that go way beyond the expected burgers and hot dogs. In Tailgreat he makes his case that tailgating food can be so much more than sad store-bought dips and chips, as we celebrate the spirit of coming together with friends and family to support a common cause: our team. The dishes are flavor-packed hits like Korean BBQ Wings, Grilled Corn Guacamole, Sweet Mustard Pulled Pork, and NOLA Roast Beef Po’Boy Bites. With these recipes you will surely lead your team, or at least your next meal, to victory.

This classic melds the warming potency of Cognac with a little sweet and some gingery heat. All perfectly balanced. For when you need more than just a sip or two.

Cucumber and Onion Salad
