With fair season cancelled this year, chef and author, George Geary lets you enjoy the food of county fairs without leaving your house.

The summer season is a time for ice cream, summer camp and state and county fairs. But this summer will be different with fairs cancelled due to COVID 19. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the fun foods we love to eat served up at the fair.

In his best-selling cookbook, Fair Foods: The Most Popular and Offbeat Recipes from America’s State and County Fairs, award-winning chef, best-selling author, and renowned educator George Geary celebrates the fun, delicious, strange and wonderful foods sold at state and county fairs. Since we can’t go to the fair, George brings the fair to you with two of the most popular and iconic fair food recipes.

Create your own local fair or summer camp experience this summer in your own backyard with two of the most popular and delicious fair food recipes.
