Enter now to win $1,000 stipend to education conference of your choice!
This year marks the 5th anniversary of the James Beard Foundation and Mushroom Council’s Blended Burger Project, a foodservice initiative that encourages chefs to consider and menu more plant-forward, sustainable dishes. This year, the Blended Burger Project is super-sized with competitions in multiple categories including, for the first time, consumers and retail dietitians.
Plant-forward eating is on trend, with grocery shoppers seeking solutions when they visit your stores. Are you ready to cash in on this trend and sell solutions to shoppers by joining the Blended Burger Project™? After all, who doesn’t love a good burger? Your shoppers will love that burger even more if it puts more plants on the plate.
To join the Blended Burger Project and be eligible to win a $1,000 stipend for an education conference of your choice, it’s as easy as chop, cook and blend. Simply create your favorite blend of finely chopped, umami-rich mushrooms with ground meat in full-size burgers or sliders. Minnesota is famous for the Juicy Lucy and New Jersey gave us the slider; what burger is famous in your state? Use your culinary chops to create your favorite blended burger as an entry for this competition.
As mentioned, the contest winner will receive a $1,000 stipend for an education conference of their choosing. Recipes will be judged on culinary creativity and flavor by a panel of RDBA Advisory Board members and the Mushroom Council team.
