Buy Me Some Peanuts, and Cracker Jacks and Rib Eye!

It’s been 13 years since the National League beat the American League at the All-Star Game but sadly we couldn’t cut it in the kitchen.   Dustin Miller, Executive Chef from Kansas City won the first ever battle of  ‘Baseball’s Best Ballpark Food.’  

The winning dish featured a seasoned rib-eye with cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, onion rings, Kansas City barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato and pickle on a bun. 

Kudos still goes out to our hometown Chef Flavien Trichery for his Twisted Sausage and Pepper Sandwich.  A good meat choice in my opinion to represent New Yorkers.   

Here’s a list of the competing chefs and their dishes: 

Dave Dekker, Executive Chef at Angel Stadium (Halo Foot-Long Dog)  

Ron Abell, Executive Chef at Fenway Park (New England Lobster Roll) 

Dustin Miller, Executive Chef at Kauffman Stadium (Kansas City Ribeye Stack)
