FunnyJohn Posted April 3, 2014 Share Posted April 3, 2014 Interesting story focused on how food at the ballpark is undergoing an upgrade (actually this has been a trend underway for several years now, starting at Camden Yards) "All across America, the national pastime has been hustling to keep pace with the latest food trends: Juicing in baseball has taken on a whole new meaning, with fashionable cold-pressed fruit and veggie juices sold at Marlins Park in Miami. At Citizens Bank Park in Philly, even fans with celiac disease can enjoy a cheesesteak "” or choose from a bunch of other gluten-free options from Section 136. Phillies faithful who have no aversion to wheat, meanwhile, can gorge themselves on artisan-style doughnuts designed by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Solomonov. At Fenway Park in Boston, there is now a whole peanut-free zone, where clean-up crews take extra care to eliminate every trace of the old-fashioned shelled snack in line with modern concerns about allergens. And, in Denver, the crew at Coors Field seems especially eager to adopt the latest food craze, laying claim to a trio of firsts over the past several years: MLB's first dedicated gluten-free stand (2009), first food truck to set up inside a ballpark (2011) and, in a remarkable flip-of-the-script to Field of Dreams, the first sustainable garden to be built within a ballpark (2013)." 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
