Cooking With The Phillies
OK, there are a few more shopping days left this week.
This just in…..one of the hottest selling items in the Phillies world is the new cookbook: “From Our Home to Yours, A Collection of Phillies Recipes.” Over 500 copies were shipped today by the merchandize department staff. Volunteers were needed to process the orders.
You’ll get recipes from the players and staff, from Danny Baez (“Cuban-style chicken fricassee) to Shane Victorino (chicken katsu). Plus inside information such as their favorites restaurant, who does the cooking in the family and a player’s traditional pre-game or post-game meal or snack.
When asked who does the cooking in his household, Chase replied, “Hahaha…next question.” Guess he answered it.
Phillies photographer Miles Kennedy did all photographic work, all outstanding poses. Ryan Madson is wearing a white chef’s hat and apron; Sara (wife) and Ella (daughter) are wearing white aprons. Twin sons (Luke and Ryan) are wearing red chef’s hats and red aprons. Their recipe: “chicken tacos with green sauce.”
Oh, don’t worry, not all the recipes are chicken oriented.
Proceeds will benefit the Covenant House Pennsylvania, a shelter for homeless, runaway or at-risk youth. Just another way that the Phillies are reaching out to the community.
The Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Ordering online or by phone (1-877-GO-PHILS) at this late date may not make it in time for Christmas day but getting gifts after the holiday is more normal than unusual. Well, I’ve been known to deliver late Christmas gifts so I must be normal.
