We’re excited to announce our participation in The James Beard Foundation and Mushroom Council’s 5th Annual Blended Burger Project!
The Blended Burger Project™ is a nationwide contest from the James Beard Foundation challenging restaurant chefs to create a delicious burger using a meat patty cut with at least 25% finely-chopped fresh mushrooms.
Chef Jamil Pineda and his team created the "Mighty Murf Burger" to enter this contest.
Mighty Murf Burger: Bison, Chorizo, & Beech Mushrooms with Porcini Rub, Monterey Pepper-Jack Cheese, Plum Tomatoes, Sweet Onion & Bacon Jam on a Brioche Bun.
Why a Blended Burger?
The Blended Burger Project is an initiative to encourage chefs to create a healthier, more sustainable burger without sacrificing taste. This movement educates diners about the benefits of “The Blend” and the future of food. We wanted to challenge our wonderful team to develop a burger that makes a sustainable difference for our menu.
