See your recipe served up on the menu at urbanburger, Exeter’s original burger restaurant
Exeter’s original burger restaurant, urbanburger, is today launching the ‘What’s your beef?’ competition inviting people to create the ultimate burger and win a place on the menu.
Recipes will be judged by a panel of food experts with the winning burger being included on urbanburger’s menu. In addition, to this accolade the winner will receive £250 worth of vouchers to spend in urbanburger and urban underground.
Launched by Garth and Melissa Pearse in September 2012, urbanburger has become famed for its array of gourmet burgers made with 100% Devon beef. Last month it was named by GQ magazine as one of the top five gourmet burger restaurants in the country http://ehod.co/GQUrbanburger
“We’re looking for inspirational and mouth-watering creations,” said Garth.
“Be creative, be different, be brave. We pride ourselves on using the best local ingredients and giving our customers a wonderful experience to remember, so it needs to be something special.”
Melissa added: “We’re really hoping that there is someone out there to create the burger to top all burgers. Priding yourself on staying local doesn’t mean you can’t draw your inspiration from around the world, the past, present or future.”
‘What’s your beef?’ competition recipes can be beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian, but it should be possible to source the key ingredients locally from Devon. Up to 10 ingredients for the filling and a standard or gluten free bun can be used.
The entries will be judged on flavour, texture and presentation and should take no more than 10 minutes to prepare. Entrants need to send in their ‘What’s your beef?’ recipe, using the form at www.urbanburger.co.uk by Friday, 14th November 2014.
The best recipes will be shortlisted, cooked and go before an ‘X-Factor’ style judging panel of Devon food lovers and food experts on Thursday, 27th November at urbanburger. All those shortlisted will be invited to the judging evening and get the chance to see their burger in the spotlight. The panelists will be revealed later this month.
The shortlist will be announced on Twitter @UrbanBurgerExe on XXXXXX #Whatsyourbeef.
In recent months urbanburger has revised its main menu and also launched a new Urban Smoke Shack, with beef, pork and chicken cooked in a newly-imported American ‘smoker’.
