Michel, who came on board with the Power just a couple of months ago, is thinking big when it comes to the Appalachian Power Park food.
He came to West Virginia by way of Akron, Ohio, where he was the director of food and beverage for the Akron Aeros.
There, he sold items like "The Screamer," a five-pound ice cream sundae made with a one-pound brownie and 21 scoops of ice cream in a baseball helmet. They also sold the Nice 2 Meat You Burger, which contained 10 pounds of ground beef, hot dog, bacon, cheese and onions. The Three Dog Night consisted of a hot dog stuffed inside a bratwurst stuffed inside a kielbasa and topped with sauerkraut and mustard.
When determining the foods West Virginia is known for, he kept hearing of pepperoni rolls and decided the Appalachian Power Park needed one of its own.
In Michel's folder of "Extreme Foods," he has only one other to accompany the pepperoni roll: the Gunner Mountain Nachos.
Placed in a replica Pirates helmet will be chips topped with shredded pork, beef and chicken, as well as cheese, sour cream and salsa. The dish will be weighing in at just under four pounds. It was named after Gunner, the team's on-field host, who likes his nachos.
Appalachian Power Park also will have a cafe-type concession area to sell wings, fish tacos and house garlic fries.
