St. Paul, Minn. — Superbowl Sunday is almost here. It's a day for sports, sure, but also for snacks. But none of us will be eating as well this weekend as Wayne Kostroski. For the last 16 years, Kostroski has organized a superbowl feast featuring top chefs from all 31 NFL cities. He's the co-founder of Cuisine Concepts, based in Edina, which owns Bar Abaline, Tejas and the Franklin Street Bakery.
The Taste of the NFL has become a huge fundraiser in the midst of all the Super Bowl hype. Wayne Kostroski be in Jacksonville to do it again this weekend, with the proceeds from the event going to hunger relief organizations in that city and Second Harvest food banks around the country.
Kostroski has even published a book full of recipes collected from the Taste of the NFL chefs over the years. It's called "The Sunday Night Football" cookbook.
