Food Network’s ‘Best Burger’ Contest A Little Fishy

No Comment

krusty If a friend from some far away place was visiting you in the U.S. and said ‘I’ve heard of this thing called a burger, I’d like to try a really good one’ would you offer him a tuna fish sandwich?

And yes I’m aware of ‘veggie burgers’, ‘turkey burgers’, Krusty Burgers and Hamilton Burger but would you really refer to any of these as the ‘best burger in the galaxy?’. Well Food Network does.

In what had to be their low point 2nd lowest point of the year (so far) this weeks ‘Ultimate Recipe Showdown’ winner in the burgers category was a fish sandwich. As an aside this show is terrible. It’s like a cross between an episode of ‘Iron Chef America’ except the contestants aren’t anybody you’ve ever heard of and ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ with $975,000 less production effort and prize money. The only redeeming quality are the hosts Marc Summers (Unwrapped) and Guy Fieri (Guy’s Big Bite, Diners) both who we like a lot. Additionally together they have good chemistry which at the very least makes the show listenable albeit in the background while you putter away at some nonsense, like say writing articles about fish burgers. Anyway hope here is that these two pair up on something of quality. And soon.

As for the winning selection, the winner of each contest has their recipe replicated by Fridays restaurants and included on their menu so maybe Fridays needed a tuna dish more than real burger. Or maybe they were also disappointed because they turned it into a slider(mini-sandwich) instead of a full blown entree.

As for what Marc Summers (hopefully at gunpoint) called the “best burger in the galaxy”, you’ll notice that Food Network reviewers have rated it 3 out of 5 stars.
