Living the Gourmet had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with #chef Russell Booth, Executive Chef at Hard Rock International, about #NationalBurgerMonth and the Hard Rock’s Burger Tour.
Few dishes are as iconic, as widespread, or as diverse as the burger. From playing the perennial crowd-pleaser at summer cookouts, to being transformed into veritable works of art in the latest trend setting kitchens, the burger has a variant for everyone.
We spoke recently about precisely that with Chef Russell Booth, Executive Chef at Hard Rock International, which oversees more than a hundred and fifty Hard Rock Café destinations.
Also on offer today is our contribution to National Burger Month. Today, we decided to go the more traditional rout, but with our own ‘gourmet’ spin. To begin, using freshly ground bottom round, we formed the meat into generous burgers, and grilled them rare on the griddle. Served on onion rolls with fresh salad greens for a hint of crisp freshness, raw onion for a subtle kick, and either mayo or ketchup to taste, this is burger is certain to please whether you’re making it indoors on the griddle, or serving it fresh from the grill.
