Eat, Vote and Win: The 2018 Blended Burger Project is Live

May 29, 2018

Vote for your favorite blended burger this summer to enter to win a trip for two to NYC! The James Beard Foundation’s 4th annual Blended Burger Project kicks off as your Memorial Day weekend comes to a close.

What is the Blended Burger Project?

What is this delicious project all about? It’s a competition that challenges chefs from all over the country to creatively re-imagine the iconic burger. Throughout the summer, diners can enjoy the burgers and vote for their favorites.

Last year’s winners flexed their creative juices and included ingredients like apricot and liquid glazed buns, paprika oil, and coffee salt. We can’t wait to see what 2018 competitors include!

Help a chef win!

Your votes help your favorite chef make it to the “top 20.” From there, a panel of food experts judge the top 20 voted entries, and five winners will be chosen to cook their blended burger at the James Beard House.

What’s in it for you?

Besides delicious burgers in your belly (we’re talking about serious a “YUM” factor), when you vote for your favorite blended burger you are automatically entered for a chance to win an expenses-paid trip for two to the Blended Burger event at the James Beard House in NYC!

Hungry yet? Check out Stephanie Izard’s Blended Burger (then go try it).
