16 recipe ideas for game nights

Yes, Super Bowl or hockey nights are about the game, but they’re also all about the snacks.

Let’s face it, finger food is often the main attraction. Simply lay the dishes out on the living room table or  throw ’em on the counter, and let people graze as they watch. No matter the outcome of the game, with these dishes, you’ll be a winner.

Italian-style pork ribs

Every good chef has a recipe for ribs; if you don’t have yours, this is my gift to you! It’s a dish that’s as easy to make with friends, as it is to eat with them. If they ask you, you don’t have to say it’s from us, it’ll be our little secret.


Slow cooker chili

Après-ski or post-match meal? Chili. It’s cold outside? Chili. Having friends over? Chili. With the slow cooker, you can prepare everything in the morning and leave it to cook all day so it’s ready for dinner. And if you’re eating in front of the TV, enjoy it with your favourite tortilla chips or served in tacos!

Mortadella and pistachio pesto pizza

The inspiration for this recipe came to us from our good friend Marc Vetri and is now served at our pizzeria, Gema. A masterpiece to make at home with mortadella & pistachio pesto on our tomato and cheese pizza.

Italian sausage sub

Salami and cheese calzones

Calzone comes from the regions of Calabria and Puglia in southern Italy. When they made pizza, they didn’t want to throw anything away, so they used the leftover pizza dough to make calzones. This dish was sold as street food, because it’s very easy to eat on the go.


Italian sausage sub

Whether it’s an impromptu party or one that’s been planned for a long time, the sausages are up for the challenge. Encourage your guests to add their own toppings to make it their own, that’s half of the fun.
