Here’s the Beef!

Brentwood Burger Battle…

Thursday, hundreds snaked around a tiny enclave of smoky tents in the Brentwood Whole Foods parking lot to sample goodies from five different local eateries. The first Whole Foods Market Grass-Feed Beef Burger Cook-off proved a wild success. So much so, every chef ran out of patties! Once the coals cooled and the last morsel was savored–Local Harvest came out on top!

Chef Clara Moore and her dynamic grilling duo (J. Jones and Mr. Zeng) whipped up an original meat-masterpiecce. A juicy grass-fed patty studded with roasted garlic, topped with Patchwork bacon, Prairie Breeze cheese, pickled veg, homemade ketchup and grainy mustard. Then, all that loveliness got sandwiched in a hearty pretzel bun. Whoa!

Thanks to the patrons’ votes (and satisfied tummies), Local Harvest’s burger received first prize and $500 to the non-profit of Chef Clara’s choice, Missouri Rural Crisis Center. Thanks for showing Local Harvest love!!!

To the victor goes the giant novelty check!

The burger--in all its grass-fed glory
