Rainforest Cafe Reggae Beat Seasoning
By Todd Wilbur
Walk inside Steve Schussler's house in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and you’ll think you've stepped into a jungle. Seventeen years of research and seven years of construction went into re-creating a working rain forest inside the doors of his not exactly-humble abode. This is how Steve presented the idea for his theme restaurant chain to potential investors. One of them, Lyle Berman, liked the idea, and helped finance the first Rainforest Cafe in Minneapolis's Mall of American in 1994.
The popular chain uses Reggae Beat Seasoning in several of its recipes. In 1998, Rainforest Cafe bottled the spice and now sells it in the gift shops attached to each of the rain forest-themed eateries. . Use this jerk-style seasoning blend on chicken, pork and fish.
