Plan Ahead

When professional chefs prep for a big event, they may start cooking two to three days in advance. Chefs know what items hold up well and which need to be prepared at the last minute. There are lots of Super Bowl essentials that benefit from sitting in the fridge for a day or two before serving. Dips, desserts, and crudité are great for sitting in the fridge overnight. So go ahead and knock out half of your food preparations on Friday or Saturday, making game day far less stressful.

Look at all the dishes you are serving and do as much ahead as possible, even if that means just chopping and measuring ingredients, all of which make the actual cooking a lot easier.
