The Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl this year, but Tom Brady sure is — which means we’re settling into our well-worn couches, stocking up on Super Bowl food, and tuning in to watch the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.

While plenty of football fans may have previously celebrated the Super Bowl at a bar, standing shoulder-to-shoulder while pitchers of beer were passed to tables filled with nachos and wings, the pandemic will have most people snacking in front of their own TVs during Super Bowl LV. And, as they have throughout this past year, chefs will be boxing up food so fans can enjoy tender wings and cheesy nachos at home.

For Jonathan Gilman, chef and owner at Brato Brewhouse + Kitchen in Brighton, the 2004 Super Bowl marked the start of his culinary journey. During the 2003 season, Gilman, a lifelong Patriots fan, made a bet with his college friends that if the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl, he would throw a party centered around a turducken feast.

“[After] two weeks of YouTubing and researching, I found that this cooking process really sparked some interest in the kitchen,” Gilman told Boston.com. “That project got me into researching new things to cook, and that snowballed into an eventual transition to the culinary world as a profession.”

The Patriots went on to beat the Carolina Panthers that year, and Gilman has thrown a Turducken Super Bowl party every year since. More than 300 guests have experienced Gilman’s turducken, solidifying a tradition he said “has come to take on the meaning of an anniversary of cooking, and is a very important tradition to both my friends and family.”

Gilman said it was the last party he threw before the shutdown last March.

This year, the chef is offering at-home kits of his turducken party to his friends and family, while at Brato, he’s partnered with Lamplighter Brewing and Night Shift Brewing to offer Super Bowl party packs for guests throwing their own game day parties (turducken not included, though there are wings, queso dip, and spare ribs).

“We are hoping that people can still have a version of that party in the comfort and safety of their own homes,” he said.

And yes, he’s still rooting for Brady.
