Chef Adrianne Calvo Shares Game-Day Snacks on the Today Show
Tune in to the Today show on NBC this morning, Friday, November 19, at 9 a.m. to get some great tips on how to make your tailgate more delicious. Miami chef Adrianne Calvo pays homage to the upcoming game that has the Pittsburgh Steelers facing the Los Angeles Chargers with two recipes. Her “outrageous” Italian sandwich pays tribute to Pittsburgh with a hero made with petso, mortadella, capicola, salami, pepperoncini, pepperoni, roasted red peppers, and sliced mozzarella atop crusty ciabatta bread. Serve her her mac ‘n’ cheeseburger tots, or a queso fundido dip with chorizo that brings a taste of Los Angeles to your game-day viewing party.
