In the early 1990’s the Capitals released Capital Cuisine, a cookbook of recipes compiled by the team’s players and staff. Last March, the Capitals once again announced that they were putting together Cooking With the Caps, another cookbook compiled by the team’s players, coaches, staff, and the team caterer.
Unforeseen circumstances caused said cookbook to be put on hiatus, with an unknown return time. Monday afternoon the Caps announced that the Cooking With The Caps cookbook is finally ready to be released! The books will debut at the Verizon Center on Saturday March 4, with all the proceeds benefiting DC Central Kitchen.
Here’s a few examples from the new cookbook:

In conjunction with the book’s publication, SuperFd is selecting four recipes from Cooking with the Caps for the “Cook the Book” challenge. Beginning Monday, March 6, one recipe will be announced each Monday on the SuperFd social media accounts for fans to recreate. Fans are asked to upload a photo of their dish to Instagram and tag it using the #CapsCookbook hashtag. The winning photo will be shared on SuperFd’s Instagram page along with the next recipe for the challenge the following Monday. The winner will have the chance to redeem their current cookbook for an autographed copy by a Caps player. Prizes can be redeemed at the SuperFd Cafe at Kettler Iceplex.
In addition a total of ten redeemable tickets will be placed randomly in cookbooks sold. The person who purchases a cookbook and has the ticket can redeem it for signed copy by a Caps player. Prizes can be redeemed at the SuperFd Cafe at Kettler Iceplex.
