Build A Better Burger(r) Contest Offers $50,000 Prize
(NAPSA) – If you have ever wondered what it takes to make the next $50,000 burger, keep reading.
When one woman entered the 2006 Sutter Home Build a Better Burger National Recipe Contest and Cook-Off(r), she created a recipe from the heart. Little did she know, her brains would help her beat nearly 9,000 other entries for the coveted $50,000 grand prize.
Camilla Saulsbury’s Born in Berkeley Burger wowed the judges with her clever twist on a classic bacon cheeseburger, which included fresh figs, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon-grilled fennel and baby arugula. The inspiration for the recipe came from growing up in California and picking fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs with her father. Getting Saulsbury’s crowd-pleasing burger to the finals can be attributed to using her brains and tapping the skills she honed in earning a doctorate in home cooking.
‘Camilla’s recipe stood out because it was easy to follow and used a unique blend of flavors,’ said Jeffrey Starr, culinary director for the contest. ‘But most importantly, the burger was amazing.’
‘I guess all those years in school taught me to follow instructions and write well,’ Saulsbury confesses modestly. ‘Beyond that, I just love to cook.’
After making it to the finals, it comes down to making the best-tasting and best-looking burger for the judges, all while the clock is ticking. Here’s the winning recipe:
