Yorktown's Rob Del Balzo, owner of Nuttin to It, recently teamed up with the hosts of The Kitchen – a new talk show on the Food Network  – to help them throw the ultimate football party by creating a football stadium out of food.

Throughout the show, he and the hosts constructed the 'snackadium' while Geoffrey Zakarian made game day chili, Sunny Anderson mixed a pitcher of cocktails, Katie Lee baked the ultimate dip, Jeff Mauro constructed the 'perfect sandwich' and Marcela Valladolid baked a sweet pie.

The Kitchen episode that features Del Balzo aired Saturday on the Food Network Show. You can catch repeat episodes on Sundays at 12 p.m. and Mondays at 4 p.m. 

"It was amazing," Del Balzo said of his experience on the show. "I've always done behind the camera work. The cast and the crew were really welcoming and I had a blast."

Del Balzo has provided backstage catering to the cast and crew of major network TV shows and films such as: Next Food Network Star, Rocco's Dinner Party, Inkmaster, Design Star, Sweet Genius, Celebrity Apprentice, VH1 and MTV productions, and Harry Potter. Last year he had the opportunity to work at one of the biggest events in the music industry. He was hired to cater at the Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Brooklyn. 

Just in time for next Sunday's Super Bowl, the show gives viewers a chance to get creative with their food at their football party. 

Bel Balzo's food, which was featured on The Kitchen show's 'snackadium,' included his spinach artichoke dip – used as the grass of the field; and his red and black bean dip – used as the end zones. His recipe for the pulled pork sandwich was also a hit among the hosts, he said. 

Nuttin to It is located at 2013 Crompond Road in Yorktown. For more information on the restaurant, click here. For more information on The Kitchen and recipes, click here.
