Get yer peanuts, truffled popcorn, Bryan Voltaggio bobblehead
How's this sound for Minor League baseball concession-stand grub?
Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho "Dipping Dots" Rock Shrimp Ceviche with Petite
Cilantro ($4); Coriander Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna "Nicoise Style" ($5); Summer Truffle Popcorn ($3).
And that's just the appetizer lineup when chef Bryan Voltaggio mans a concession stand at Harry Grove Baseball Stadium during a Frederick Keys game July 27. The Volt restaurant co-owner and "Top Chef" runner-up will also throw out the first pitch.
But here's the best part: the first 1,000 fans through the gate will receive a Bryan Voltaggio bobblehead. (Sorry I don't have a photo of that to share with you; organizers want to keep it under wraps until game day.)
You know you've arrived as a chef when you've been immortalized as a Bobblehead.
"It is quite the honor to be 'molded' in this way -- not quite an action figure but one that kids might just enjoy," Voltaggio said. "And in the spirit of Frederick, I am honored that our local baseball team would think to honor me and my work that has contributed to the community. As a Frederick native, I couldn't be more humbled over this distinction."
Here's the rest of the Volt concession menu for that night:
Marvesta Shrimp "Po-Boy" Wrap, Old Bay Chips $6
Pulled Red Wattle Pork, Pickled Watermelon, Dill Potato Salad $6
Soft Shell Crab Sandwich, Pickled Fennel-Cucumber Slaw $10

Key Lime Pie $3

The Keys will play the Lynchburg Hillcats that night, though that's waaay beside the point.
