I love sports and one of the big differences I noticed between European and U.S. fans is tailgating. I’m amazed that Americans are so passionate about their teams, yet you never hear about hooligans here.  Instead, that excitement about a team gets transferred into an eating ritual. At Top Chef Masters, we had a tailgating challenge in California. The game was USC vs. Stanford. Families came from all over the state to support their teams.

That day, I made a yummy avocado shrimp soup, along with burgers and grilled shrimp. If I had it to do over again, I might cook this recipe.
