If you plan to watch the game at home, keep in mind that the food is almost as important as the actual game! Here are some of Temecula Valley’s most popular dishes, shared by local chefs: 

Prep Time: 45 minutes | Cook Time: 16 minutes |Total Time: 1 hour 1 minute | Yields: 40 pretzel bites 


  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast 
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar 
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (about 110°F), divided 
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 tsp fine salt 
  • 2 tbsp food-grade lye 
  • 1-liter water, room temperature 
  • Coarse salt and/or sesame seeds 

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the yeast, sugar, and 1/4 cup of warm water. Whisk to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1 1/4 cups of warm water, flour, and fine salt. Mix on low speed until combined. Increase speed to medium and knead for five minutes until the dough is smooth and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl, adding more flour if needed. This will be a very dense dough. Remove the dough to a clean work surface (do not flour). Divide into 10 equal pieces (each should be about 100 grams). Roll each piece against the counter or between your palms into about a 24-inch long log. Cut each log into 4 equal "bites".  Place on baking sheets. Wear safety gloves and goggles and a face mask too if you prefer. In a well-vented area, place a plastic or glass container (do not use metal) on top of a few pieces of parchment paper to protect your counter. Carefully sprinkle the lye into the water. Use a silicone spatula to carefully stir the lye to dissolve. The lye is dissolved when the water looks clear. Dip pretzels into the lye bath for about 30 seconds. Remove to the baking sheets. Use a paring knife to score two slices into the thickest part of each pretzel. Sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seeds. Bake at 400°F for 16 minutes until deeply golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing it from the parchment paper. Serve warm or at room temperature with spicy deli mustard.  Enjoy with a glass of Cougar Vermentino or a local Craft Beer!

These are sweet, spicy, and sticky baked chicken wings in an ultra-flavorful Calabrian chili-based sauce. 

Prep Time: 4 hours | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Serves: 4-5 


  • 4 lbs chicken wings 
  • 3 tbsp Calabrian chili peppers 
  • 5 tbsp honey 
  • Juice and zest of one lime 
  • 2 tbsp Yuzu 
  • 1 clove garlic, grated 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • Sesame seeds 
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro (or stemmed Cilantro) 

Directions: Prepare wings by cutting them apart at the joints to separate the drumettes from the flats. You can also remove the wing tips and use them to make stock later. Combine the salt, pepper, and baking soda in a small bowl then dust the wings with this mixture. Arrange wings on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Place wings in the refrigerator (don't cover them!) for a minimum of 2 hours and up to 12. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil, arrange wings on the baking sheet, and bake wings on 450F for 30 minutes, rotating once halfway through. While the wings are baking, make the Calabrian chili sauce. In a large bowl, place Calabrian chilis, honey, Yuzu, lime juice and zest and garlic. Whisk to combine. Remove wings from baking sheet. If they're slightly stuck, use a fish spatula to help get them off without tearing them! Switch oven to broil. Toss wings in the sauce and return them to the baking sheet. Broil for 3 minutes, or until slightly blackened. Garnish with cilantro and toasted sesame seeds. 

Squeeze a fresh lime over before serving to really make the flavors pop!
