Cool contest: Sutter Home Build a Better Burger

Build a Better Burger 2012 logoGot grilling skills? Bring ’em on and you could win $100,000 in the Sutter Home Build a Better Burger contest. California’s bastion of White Zinfandel has been hosting this contest for 21 years, coaxing creative burger recipes out of Americans across the land. Some really robust recipes have emerged over the years, from tuna-based burgers to portobellos and plopped on foccacia to pita. The full burgerbase is housed here if you’re looking for ideas for the contest or what to throw over coals tonight.

“This competition started 21 years ago as a way to demystify the wine experience by pairing America’s favorite everyday meal with its favorite wine brand – Sutter Home.  Everyone has a chance to win, so we encourage casual cooks of all levels to submit their recipes,” noted Wendy Nyberg, Marketing Director for Sutter Home Winery. “Over the years our winners have hailed from different careers, geographic locations, and heritages – all of which have influenced their burger recipes.” Yea, like this one: Born in Berkeley Burgers with grilled fennel, basil and arugula (among other items on the ingredient list).
