James McNair and Chef Jeffrey Starr, created a Burger Parties: Recipes from Sutter Home Winery’s Build a Better Burger Contest, featuring 16 themed burger parties. Words to the wise: Don’t open the book unless you are ready to fire up the BBQ and start grilling…the burger recipes will start the stomach growling and the taste buds tingling: ). Let us tempt you…”Little Italy Sausage Burgers,” “Sweet-Hot Thai Burgers,” and “Bouillabaise Sliders”…see what we mean?
James McNair has been the head judge of Sutter Home’s Build a Better Burger® contest and he co-authored this book with Chef Jeffrey Star to feature the winning burger recipes from the contest’s recent 20th anniversary. Chef Jeffrey is the Culinary Director and Executive Chef for Trinchero Family Estates and Build a Better Burger…and a regular guest judge on The Food Network Challenge Series. The two created party themes and menus around the burgers, including super side dishes, sweet treats, and wine pairings (referencing Sutter Home wines).
The themes are fun and, in some cases, over-the-top…a good book if you are looking for new ways to make and serve burgers! There’s even more to inspire you on Build a Better Burger® at Sutter Home’s website.
