Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Mellow Mushroom has crowd-sourced its own employees for new food and beverage concepts that are now debuting via a limited-run menu. Items such as the Turkey Club pizza pie, the Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzone and the Thaidal Wave Sweet Thai Chili Chicken Hoagie will be available to order this month.
Mellow Mushroom polled servers, bartenders, prep and line cooks from over 160 locations to curate the new Homegrown Picks menu, which will be available nationwide through March 31st.
Mellow Mushroom launched the Homegrown Challenge, calling for the best pizza, salad, calzone, hoagie and cocktail recipes from their employees. Over 85 recipes were submitted and judged on taste, presentation and originality. After whittling down the submissions to the seven finalists that now comprise the Homegrown Picks menu, a panel of professional judges determined an overall food and cocktail winner.
The panel consisted of Eater editor Sonia Chopra, Chef Rory Moon, New York Times dining writer Kim Severson, mixologist Todd Richman and Home-Grown Industries CEO Richard Brash.
