Mellow Mushroom releases employees-only menu

  • Thursday, March 13, 2014

Mellow Mushroom has crowdsourced its own employees for new food and beverage concepts that are now debuting via a limited-run menu through March 31.

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 launched the Homegrown Challenge, calling for the best pizza, salad, calzone, hoagie and cocktail recipes from their employees. More than 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.

New menu items include: Thaidal Wave Hoagie – Sweet thai chili chicken, grilled onions and mushrooms, provolone cheese, fresh broccoli and tomatoes, mayonnaise and finished with a balsamic glaze drizzle. Awarded Best Overall Food.

Blueberry Vodka Mojito – Fresh blueberries, mint and lime muddled with simple syrup then shaken with American Harvest organic vodka and guava nectar and finished with a splash of soda. Awarded Best Overall Cocktail

Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzone – All-natural chicken, maple-glazed ham, swiss and mozzarella cheeses with dijonnaise sauce. All layered inside Mellow Mushroom's fresh dough and baked to warm.

Quirky Turkey Club Pie – A Mellow Mushroom pizza with an olive oil and garlic base and topped with Applewood smoked bacon, turkey, caramelized onions, fresh spinach, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and finished with sliced organic apples and a swirl of honey mustard.
