The inspiration of Powder’s summer menu was a collaborative effort with everyone in the kitchen sharing ideas. The team is incredibly proud of their creations, and we look forward to welcoming you to indulge in the new menus.
My inspiration for the coconut smoothie came from two directions. First, was my love of tropical style drinks, and second was the desire to use infused fruits in my drinks. I knew right away that I wanted to have coconut and pineapple in it with mango being the best complimentary flavor for it. I got the inspiration for doing compressed pineapple after watching it done on a baking show using watermelon. I knew right away that I had to try it. Compressing it with a coconut syrup was the best way to get that great flavor combination.
Hawaiian Flat Bread Pizza
My inspiration for the Hawaiian flat bread came from my love of Hawaiian Pizza. I have always enjoyed the combination of pineapple and ham on my pizza as well as in sandwiches and salads. I really like BBQ sauce on my pizza too regardless of the toppings. I love good homemade BBQ sauce and make it a lot at home. I am always trying new variations of peppers in it. The addition of speck in place of the ham was the suggestion of the Executive Chef. Our head Pastry Chef also gave me the suggestion to create a pineapple chutney to use in place of diced pineapple. This was a great collaboration from multiple team members. I am very pleased with the result.
I wanted something that offered a unique spin on scrambled eggs and breakfast meats. I tried playing with a few different flavors and products. I liked the braised chicken and thought that this was something you did not see at breakfast.
