Food + Football = The Ultimate Turkey Touchdown

There is no day when these teams’ talents combine more than on Thanksgiving, which is why we're wishing you a very happy holiday from ICE and our #GangGreen partners, the NY Jets.

We've been gearing up for the ultimate food fest throughout the second season of the Official New York Jets Cooking School at ICE, teaching fans to craft everything from Chicago deep dish pizza to the ultimate chicken wings and even deep-fried turkeys. What's more, each class has featured current and former Jets players as special guests, from Bruce Harper and Wesley Walker to Brandon Moore, Tony Richardson and Willie Colon.There are still two more chances for you to join in the food and football fun before the end of the season:

This class is inspired by the New York Jets taking on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, December 14. Current Jets players including Willie Colon, Breno Giacomini, and Nick Folk will be in attendance to get guests in the Green & White spirit! ICE chef instructors will teach you easy Southern-inspired tailgating recipes for perfectly fried chicken, mac and cheese, collard greens and more.

Join ICE and the Jets on a culinary tour to conquer the flavors the AFC East: Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and, of course, your New York Jets. Pick your favorite competitor and learn to prepare game-worthy recipes inspired by their hometown. Cook alongside Jets players and enjoy a behind-the-scenes guided tour including such premium stadium spaces as the press box, Jets team locker room and more.
