New York City has one of the most diverse burger cultures in America. There is no burger focus in the town where you can find everything from the classic griddled thin patty to the stuffed and pricey DB Burger. The Queens magazine Dish Du Jour has decided to host the first ever Burger Battle of the Boroughs, on May 2oth, pitting 2 burgers from each borough against each other (no Staten Island though, sorry guys). I was asked to be the evening's emcee and graciously accepted (I could talk about burgers in front of a crowd for hours). The event will be action packed, from the actual burger cook-off to book signings with Josh Ozersky and his new book on the history of the hamburger. I'll be signing my new Hamburger America book too. Contestants from Bravo's Top Chef will be in attendance as well as Kelly Choi from NYCTV's Eat Out NY. Click here for event details.
