Mon, Jan 29th 2018 03:00 pm
Food Network's "Game Day Eats" live event is fast approaching with even more highlights added to the daylong schedule. The cross-platform experience takes place Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m. ET, and will offer game-day recipes, tips and inspiration across the brand's linear, digital and convergent properties, including Facebook Live, digital series "Food Network Finds," Spoon University, as well as a half-time report during Saturday's 11 a.m. episode of "The Kitchen." 
Sports-enthusiast and co-host of "The Kitchen," Sunny Anderson, will also join the action live at 1:30 p.m., direct from Food Network Kitchen. As a complement to the live programming, Food Network's Snapchat Discover channel will also roll out a full day of big-game-themed-content on Sunday.
#GameDayEats kicks off live at 10 a.m. with "Food Network Finds," the popular social franchise with nearly 669 million views to date that takes fans behind the scenes of popular restaurants across the country. The series travels up to Boston to get the lowdown on the biggest foods being prepared for the big game, including a monster-sized, crowd-pleasing lobster roll from Lobstah on a Roll.
At 11:30 a.m., Food Network Kitchen's Vivian Chan will go live to nearly 28 million followers on Food Network's Facebook page. She is putting her twist on game day appetizers with Buffalo fried shrimp and nacho chicken drumsticks. Chan regularly hosts the #MondayBites social franchise and shares creative hacks like her fried eggs on a sheet pan.
Seen by nearly 13 million total viewers during "Guy's Big Project," and fresh off their cross-country road trip shooting their recently launched TV series, Food Network's newest grilling experts, "The Grill Dads," know a thing or two about game day bites. Mark and Fey will join the daylong celebration at 12:30 p.m. via Facebook Live and share some epic bites that will leave fans wanting more.
Anderson goes live from Food Network Kitchen at 1:30 p.m., sharing her tried-and-true sports-day recipe for sticky onion crunch wings, as well as the ideal way to serve up a game day menu. She will also offer real-time help and advice to fans for their own game-day preparations.
"Football and food are lifelong friends, and game-day gatherings are the perfect time for home cooks like me to show off their kitchen skills and earn cheers from our guests," Anderson said. "I'm looking forward to chatting with all the football fans on Saturday and sharing a couple of my go-to recipes along with the perfect way to showcase those game-day bites!"
At 3 p.m., Food Network Finds will invite viewers out of the kitchen and straight to the action, when they go live from Mighty Quinn's BBQ in New York City, where the restaurant will share the playbook for their best game-day dishes.
Spoon University, the online community with over 11,500 college student contributors, gets into the action as well across their digital platforms. They will be serving up #GameDayEats recommendations for fans at college campuses across the country live on their Facebook page at 4 p.m., and try over-the-top dishes from an iconic local hot-spot.
At 5 p.m., cake-obsessed influencer and Food Network contributor Chelsweets will wrap up the daylong event and go live while making one of her signature over-the-top cakes. Garnering over 142 million video views through her work with Food Network in the last year, Chelsweets is part of the Scripps Lifestyle Experts program, which develops digital talent specifically for social and online platforms.
For more help and inspiration, Food Network's Snapchat Discover channel delivers a full day of game-day tips and tricks on Sunday to ensure fans have everything they need to chow down while they watch. Viewers will learn to make taco-stuffed sweet potatoes, Stromboli bombs, pizza braids, and learn to design their own party centerpiece made entirely of candy.
#GameDayEats will offer fans real-time, play-by-play help and inspiration to make their own game-day celebrations a win. For more information, visit foodnetwork.com/big-game and join the game using #GameDayEats.
