Editor's Note: Today, Patch is debuting another of four new video series. "Order Up!" introduces us to the personalities in the kitchens of various local restaurants. New editions of Order Up! will appear every Thursday.
Curious what goes into making that turkey burger so delicious? According to Edina Grill Chef Erik Rehpohl, the popular dish expertly combines ground turkey with jalapeno to create "a nice little snap to it."
Rehpohl allowed Patch inside of the restaurant's kitchen last week, where we were able to get a feel for the personalities at play behind the packed 50th & France destination's food. In addition to learning there are 20 different ways to chop basil, Rehpohl showed us the ins and outs of working in his kitchen.
"We always strive for excellence in the kitchen," Rehpohl said. "I've actually got a member that's been with us for 10 years, so there's a retention of staff here. It's nice because it's a family unit when you get to that point that it's not just a job, it's something that you have a passion for."
