Will it be the "Baltimore Dip" or "The Pigskin"? While Baltimore Ravens players and coaches are making final preparations for the start of the football season, one lineup won't be complete until Ravens fans have their say. The Ravens and ARAMARK, the team's exclusive food and beverage partner, need the fans help to decide which new sandwich to feature on M&T Bank Stadium's menu this season.
Fans can choose which of two sandwich finalists – developed with local flair by ARAMARK Executive Chef at M&T Bank Stadium Joseph Bachman – best appeals to their appetites by voting online at www.RavensSandwich.com. The sandwiches will also be available for purchase at the Craven Zone concession stand by Section 130, across from Gate D, and on the Club Level in Sections 229 and 250.
- Baltimore Dip: Shaved prime rib with aged cheddar cheese, roasted pepper relish, horseradish sauce, and crab dip "au jus".
- The Pigskin:Slow roasted pork in a mango and jalapeno glaze, topped with red cabbage slaw, roasted garlic mojo and manchego cheese.
The winning sandwich – determined by total sandwiches sold and online votes – will be announced prior to the November 24th home game.
"Ravens fans are as passionate about food as they are football, so what better way to serve their taste preferences than by letting them vote for their favorite sandwich," said Joe Arena, General Manager, ARAMARK at M&T Bank Stadium. "We're continually looking for ways to involve fans in the menu development process to ensure we are creating new and delicious offerings for them to enjoy."
