Super Bowl Recipe: Linton Hopkins's Shrimp Rillettes

Your football buddies might raise an eyebrow if you serve this oh-so-French-sounding spread from Atlanta-based chef Linton Hopkins at your Super Bowl party. But once they get a taste of the sweet shrimp paste that's been whipped with cayenne pepper and a generous dose of butter, they'll be parked by the ramekin for the rest of the game, alternating between rillettes-slathered chips and slugs of all-American lager.

Super Bowl Recipe: Duck Wings with Asian Chili Sauce

We may not all be rooting for the same team this Sunday, but everyone can unite behind wings and their indispensable role in any game-day spread. In this Asian-inspired recipe from JBF Award winner Keith Luce, the standard wing gets a serious upgrade: Luce swaps out quotidian chicken for succulent duck, which is cured in brown sugar and spices for three days. The wings then enjoy a long soak in warm fat, followed by quick dip in frying oil. Shellacked in a glaze of sweet chili sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sambal olek, these drumettes won't last long beyond the coin toss. Get the recipe here.
