Liquid Riot is participating in this year’s edition of the James Beard Foundation’s Blended Burger Project. The program challenges restaurants to develop burgers that include at least 25% fresh mushrooms, and to have it on the menu through July 31. During that time diners can participate by trying it out and voting for their favorite online. The program an effort by the Foundation to encourage sustainability and healthier food options.
Liquid Riot’s blended burger is called the Spore Uproar. It uses a mix of “Hen of the Wood, Pink Oyster and Lion’s Main mushrooms and beef on a buttered and grilled brioche bun, topped with Vermont Creamery fresh goat cheese, a green tomato and poblano relish, and Liquid Riot Bierschnaps mushroom pate, red-veined sorrel and pickled red onion.”
