After a sold-out 2013 season, ICE and the NY Jets are proud to announce Season 2 of our exclusive gameday cooking classes. Step up your tailgating skills with lessons from ICE’s team of all-pro chefs—without missing a minute of Monday or Thursday Night Football. What’s more, fans will have the chance to meet and cook alongside current and former Jets players.
The team is ready to #JetUp for a roaring start! New York Jets Offensive Lineman Willie Colon can’t wait to get in on the action this year. Says Willie, “I’m very excited to team up with ICE for a second season of the Jets Cooking School. This year’s classes will be bigger and better and help Jets fans take their tailgates to the next level. I look forward to working with ICE’s outstanding chefs and the amazing fans that participate to help make these delicious recipes. ”
New to this season, all class attendees will receive the ICE Exclusive VIP Jets Experience, including a once in a lifetime opportunity: an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of MetLife Stadium—game day home to the New York Jets. The tour includes a visit to the stadium’s premium spaces, including the field, press box, Jets team locker room and more.
This year’s class roster includes:
