Ryan Madson & the “Mad Dog” Roll

September 26th, 2011

Ryan Madson had his best year yet with the Philadelphia Phillies this season, finally earning the closer role. He earned his own sushi roll too, in our Celebrity Roll Series. The “Mad Dog” Roll features yellowtail, jalapeño and avocado wrapped inside soy paper then tempura battered. It’s served open-faced, topped with tuna sashimi and an avocado salsa. As with each Celebrity Roll, $1 is donated to charity for each roll sold. Ryan’s charity of choice is the Variety Club, which serves children with disabilities.

Questlove’s “Drum Roll”

August 17th, 2011

Philly’s own Questlove, leader of the Legendary Roots Crew, is EVERYWHERE these days. Going from cross-country tours to late night TV to centerstage of City Hall’s Fourth of July celebrations, Questlove is a man who never sleeps (or so it seems). Luckily, he took a little time to come by and learn to make his cheesesteak-inspired Celebrity Roll with Chef Zama.

The Questlove Drum Roll has a few twists that make it truly special. A chili-flecked soy paper gives the roll a little heat. Inside, tender washugyu beef calls out through rice and provolone cheese. The Drum Roll is ordered wit or witout sauteed onions with a jalapeño popper and horseradish aioli on the side.

For each roll sold, $1 is donated to Questlove’s charity of choice, Harlem Village Academies.
