D-Backs Introduce New Food Items at Chase Field
Stephen Tilder, Executive Chef for Levy Restaurants at Chase Field has introduced 30 new items at Chase Field to kick of the new season.
Chef Tilder invited media to Chase Field to talk about the new featured food items at Chase Field and his inspiration for creating the items. It was a particular point of pride for him to utilize local vendors and local products wherever he could in incorporating these tasty new food items at the ballpark.
“The Diamondbacks do a lot of local partnerships, as well as us,” Tilder explains. “I like to support the local economy. Number one? There are some great local products out there and number two, I feel it’s responsible to support the local economy and not bring in anyone else. I probably have 20 local vendors and I’m sourcing local produce, too.”
At the end of his food presentation, Tilder did a live demonstration for our group, constructing a Churro Dog 2.0. The demonstration was fun and it tasted great, but be prepared that, as a baseball fan, you might want to share this delectable dish with a friend or two.
