With the massive popularity of cooking shows, why not cook with the Miami Heat?
The team, broadcast partner Sun Sports and AmericanAirlines Arena concessionaire Levy Restaurants have teamed up to create a cooking show of sorts called “Recipes for Success.” The show pairs Heat players, coaches and broadcasters making some of their favorite dishes with arena executive chef Eric Chopin. The show is airing during halftime at Heat home games this month, during the Heat Live post-game shows on Sun Sports and on heat.com and FoxSportsFlorida.com.
The series started on Saturday with forward James Jones preparing curry chicken and curry shrimp enchiladas and spinach salad. You can watch the first part of the video below – the second part is at heat.com, as are the recipes.
Meanwhile, fans who eat in the Flagship and Dewars’ 12 lounges at the arena during games can sample that night’s featured recipe.
The rest of the schedule: tonight forward-guard Yakhouba Diawara is dishing up tilapia and steamed vegetables. On Friday, guard Daequan Cook makes pasta salad, steak and potato. On Sunday, guard Mario Chalmers serves jambalaya and garlic bread. March 16 brings broadcaster Tony Fiorentino’s calamari pasta, calamari salad and appetizers. On March 20, Joel Anthony makes oxtail with black eyed peas and plantains. The March 28 game will feature assistant coach David Fizdale’s macaroni & cheese, pork chops and string beans.
