PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Cheering the Steelers at Heinz Field can work up an appetite. So Aramark food service adds a new “twist” each year.
“The artisan pretzels are sea salt or cinnamon sugar,” Heinz Field executive chef Scott Walton points out. “They come with two different sauces.”
He says the home of the Steelers will have about fifteen new selections.
“This is a slow roasted pork sandwich that we rub in rosemary.”
It’s topped with charred broccoli rabe. Like a good offense, the chef says Aramark changes things up from time to time.
“People don’t give these tickets up very often. So you’re kind of forced to change up the options for them, because you see the same faces every year.”
But even a pro like Chef Walton drops the ball every now and then. Last year he introduced something called the “Kimchee Burger.”
“When we took this job I’m like just, this is a perfect place for this burger,” Walton says. “And it was a flop. Last year it completely flopped.”
Steeler great Franco Harris will serve up Italian Army Gridiron Sausages.
“I would love for our fans to try them and try them again and again and again,” the Hall of Famer admits.
But does he feel competition from the Jerome Bettis Grille, down the street? Franco lays down the challenge:
“Jerome, I’ve eaten at the Grille, so I expect to see you in the stands.”
