Publik Dra; House has announced today that it will be parDcipaDng in The James Beard Foundation's (JBF) Blended Burger ProjectTM, a nationwide contest and challenge to make a "blended burger" by blending ground meat with finely chopped, cultivated mushrooms to create a delicious, healthier, and more sustainable burger.
Chef Tom Hall has chosen to feature ‘The No. 5’ ($12) to showcase a healthier burger, from Memorial Day, May 30 through July 31, 2016. Blending meat with mushrooms reduces calories, fat, and sodium while adding important nutrients like vitamin D, potassium, and B vitamins. A blended burger also brings more sustainable, plant-based items to menus allowing Americans to enjoy the taste and flavor of the burgers they love, knowing it’s a healthier and more sustainable preparation.
