Travel Book of the Week: “Fair Foods” by George Geary

Summertime is when state fairs are in full swing. I’ve only been to a few, including the Calgary Stampede. One of the things everyone talks about after returning from these fairs is the unusual, unhealthy but delicious foods. If you or someone you know loves going to fairs to eat the food, then this book by award-winning chef, best-selling author and renowned educator George Geary will make for a perfect present.

Fair Foods: The Most Popular and Offbeat Recipes from America’s State and County Fairs“—per Amazon—is “an illustrated cookbook featuring the recipes of the most popular and offbeat food served at state and county fairs across the USA.

Packed with 120 original recipes created by award-winning chef, best-selling author, and renowned educator George Geary, Fair Foods includes such state and county fair classics as Texas Maple Bacon Donuts, The World’s Gooiest Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting, Aztec Hot Chocolate, Witch’s Brew, Caramel Kettle Corn, Fried Sweet Potato Sticks, Ten-Pound Cheesebuns, Cheesecake on a Stick, Chocolate-Encased Bacon, Fried Coca-Cola, Fried Guacamole, Fried Oreo Cookies, BBQ Turkey Legs, Bacon-Wrapped Chicken and Waffles, Blue Ribbon Chili, Pork Chop on a Stick, and Spicy Peanut Butter and Jelly Burgers.” I did say it was unhealthy, correct?

“Each page is lavishly illustrated with both vintage and contemporary photographs of the most beloved American fair foods, as well as fun and lively images of rides and attractions.”
