THE JAMES BEER FOUNDATION AND THE MUSHROOM COUNCIL — GREAT PEOPLE, THE MUSHROOM COUNCIL. YES. I LOVE MUSHROOMS. SURE. LET’S GET ON THE BOARD. WHAT THEY DO IS THEY GATHER TOGETHER AND WE HAVE MIKE WITH US, AND THEY TALK ABOUT THEIR FAVORITE MUSHROOMS, RIGHT? PRETTY MUCH. DO YOU HAVE YOUR FAVORITE? CHANTERELLE. MO RELS ARE DELICIOUS. BUT CHANTERELLES ARE MY FAVORITE. DELICIOUS AND MEATY AND SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT THEM. AND WHAT IS IN YOUR BURGER? SHITAKE. A CLOSE SECOND. ALL YEAR ROUND IS WHEN YOU CAN GET THEM. THAT’S WHY I TEND TO USE THEM. WE ARE TALKING MUSHROOMS BECAUSE THE JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION HAS A BETTER BURGER PROJECT AND TELL US THE GOAL OF IT. THE GOAL WAS TO CREATE A BURGER THAT IS A LITTLE LESS MEAT AND A LITTLE MORE SUSTAINABLE BECAUSE MUSHROOMS ARE MORE SUSTAINABLE THAN MEAT WITH. A HEALTHY BURGER. AND I WAS GOING THROUGH THE COMPETITION PAGE AND IT IS RIGHT UP OUR ALLEY SO WE DID IT. YOUR RESTAURANT IS KNOWN FOR HEALTHY FOOD. YOU USE FRESH INGREDIENTS AND THE CALORIE COUNT IS ON THE MENU. WHEN PEOPLE COME IN AND SEE THAT, DO THEY LIKE IT OR ARE THEY LIKE I DIDN’T WANT TO KNOW THAT? I THINK THEY LOVE IT. AND PEOPLE COME IN AND EAT AND AT THE END OF THE MEAL, HEY, CHEF, I HAD A THREE COURSE MEAL OR FOUR COURSE MEAL AND I FEEL GREAT. THANK YOU. THAT IS COOL. AND TELL US WHAT YOU DID TO MAKE THIS BETTER BURGER? A LITTLE BIT OF SHALLOTS. GEE, I KIND OF WANT TO GET THE SIZZLE GOING. I DO LOVE THE SIZZLE. THE GOAL OF THE PROJECT WAS TO PUT 25 TO 30% OF THE BURGER IS MUSHROOMS. THERE IS STILL MEAT IN IT. STILL MEAT. SO THEN WE HAVE THE SHITAKES. THE MUSHROOMS DO SIZZLE. WE WILL MAKE THEM SIZZLE. A LITTLE SALT. A LITTLE PEPPER. THAT’S GETTING HOT. IT IS TOASTY. AND A LITTLE FRESH THYME. PERFECT. LET THAT GO. AND SO SAUTE THIS AND THEN WE WILL CHILL IT DOWN. SO I HAVE PRE-DONE SOME OF THAT. AND I GOT THAT READY AND THE BISON. AND MY PRE-DONE SHRIMP AND MIX IT ALL TOGETHER. YOU MIX THAT, MIKE. YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THIS. I DON’T HAVE GLOVES ON. YOU CAN GET THIS AT THE RESTAURANT. LUNCH AND DINNER? LUNCH AND DINNER. THE CALORIE COUNT ON THIS BAD BOY? GOOD QUESTION. RIGHT AROUND 380 I WANT TO SAY. REALLY? NOT BAD AT ALL. GIVE ME TWO. YES. SO THAT’S OUR BURGER RIGHT THERE. THERE IT IS. PERFECT. WELL, GREAT. AND SO THIS IS PART OF OUR NATIONAL COMPETITION WITH THE JAMES BEER FOUNDATION BUT WE WANT PEOPLE TO GO OVER THERE AND TASTE IT, RIGHT? ABSOLUTELY. WE WILL EAT DURING THE BREAK. IS THAT WHAT IS HAPPENING? DO I GET TO GO THERE NOW OR WHERE ARE WE GOING NEXT? SADLY NO.
