Celebrity chef and television personality, Rachael Ray hosted the 5th annual Rachael Ray Burger Bash where nearly 30 chefs put their best burger forward in hopes of being crowned the true burger king.
The event was held last Thursday during the 2011 South Beach Wine and Food Festival in Miami.
The coveted "People's Choice Award" was won by last year's winner Michael Symon, making him the first chef to win back-to-back Burger Bash honors.
What's his secret?
Sorry vegetarians, but it's all about the meat he said as he explained his recipe for success:
"Last year it was the pastrami, this year it was the salami. It's all about meat on meat, baby!"
His created, called the Yo! Burger, had fried salami, provolone cheese, (Burger Bash award winning) shasha sauce, and pickled onion.
Congrats to Michael and all the other winners! We really want a burger now.
