NEW YORK � September 20, 2007 � Bravo and NBC Sports have teamed up to present "Football Foodies," a blog on www.bravotv.com, featuring recipes created specifically for each "Sunday Night Football" match-up by "Top Chef" contestants.

In addition to planning your party menu, Bravo's fashion and party experts from "Project Runway" will contribute various Sunday Night party suggestions such as decorating tips, beer and wine selections, appropriate Sunday Night party attire, and even suggest the proper cheese (if any) to serve for the big game.

To give viewers a full week to prepare for the big game, each Monday, two new recipes specific to the upcoming Sunday Night game will be added to the "Football Foodies" blog, making it the one-stop site for everything you need to prepare a Sunday Night feast.
