The Project: Getting ready for the Super Bowl

February 4, 2011 |  6:02 am

Wings Some people think the Super Bowl is about football.

But the rest of us know better: The Super Bowl is all about the eats.

That why this week's Project -- when we highlight recipes that are perfect for weekend cooking -- is a little different. Usually, we just pick one recipe from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen.

But it's the Super Bowl, baby! So we're going all out:

--Times Food editor Russ Parsons walks you through making homemade focaccia in the video above. (Seriously, how impressed will your friends be when you pull this out of the oven? And that's before they even taste it. Russ says focaccia bread is like potato chips meets pizza.) You'll find two focaccia recipes here.

--Check out this red chili recipe developed by Times Test Kitchen Manager Noelle Carter. It's best when made a day ahead of serving, which means you can get all the cooking out of the way before fans stampede through your front door.

--Finally, we know you have a need for lots and lots of apps. Here are some dude food recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, including these NFL-sized fried turkey wings.
