Hard Rock's Executive Chef, Jason Gronlund, works out of HQ, where we have a full production kitchen set up, ready for anything he might throw at it. There's a lot of experimentation with different ingredients, techniques, and recipes before a new menu item shows up at your local Hard Rock Cafe. It's a huge process, full of successes and failures, but for someone who loves to cook as much as Chef Gronlund it's also an incredible job to have.
With that in mind we just wanted to share one of Chef's personal recipes from the Hard Rock test kitchen. Now, this isn't one of our current menu items (you didn't think we'd give away those recipes, did you?), but it is still an excellent representation of what happens in the test kitchen and what our culinary crew does on a daily basis. Enjoy!
