Denver Zoo’s Executive Chef Beau Green. This picture makes him look as fierce as his food. He’s a powerhouse, no question. He did crack a big grin as soon as I’d taken the photo.
Chef Green spends his day on the move throughout the Denver Zoo’s restaurants. During our visit he hopped on the line to prepare-to-order Kamala Café’s Stir Fry Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce. At the zoo….who would believe it?!
Teriyaki Rice bowl offered with the choice of Teriyaki Seasoned Sesame Ginger Chicken, Sea Salt Seared Beef or Crispy Asian Seitan (a wheat protein for a vegetarian option).
Freshly prepared Edamame, soy bean pods. Traditional at most Japanese restaurants they hold flavorful young soy bean which are eaten by simply squeezing them out of the pod into one’s mouth. A healthy, flavorful, high protein snack food.
This photo is clearly ‘only a face a Chef would love’; Chef Green’s Jet Wok. He powered it up to show me it in action. It cooks so extremely hot the backdrop waterfall is necessary to manage the heat.
Wagyu Beef Sliders; served with or without cheese. Love the presentation of two on a skewer!
