Chef Favourites at Earls

The Earls development team is constantly researching trends and tweaking dishes. New favourites? The Bronx burger, sandwiched in a squishy housemade brioche bun, the more health-conscious prawn and quinoa salad, and four new dishes that made it through rigorous testing by regional chefs. For all the hoopla around housemade bread (“This is what really sets us apart from our competition,” says director of culinary development Reuben Major), president Mo Jessa sees the humble tomato as the key to Earls’ success. “We thought we had the best tomoatoes, but when we researched from scratch, we realized we were missing out.” Cue a blind taste test of 13 varieties.
