Chefs Create The Ultimate Gourmet Burgers


If you know how seriously we take burgers, you’ll know that we’re in a state of delirium over the following news:

Shake Shack, also known as the Holy Grail of fast food, is marking ten years at the top in style. Namely: asking some of the best chefs in the US to devise a series of special patties and buns.

Some of these culinary whizzes include Andrew Zimmern (Bizarre Foods) Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park), Daniel Boulud (Daniel), David Chang (Momofuku) and April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig), with each burger being sold for one day only from 9-13 June at the Madison Square Park branch in New York City.

We’d also have taken a giant burger with candles in, in case you were wondering.

Daniel Boulud's The Piggie Shack

Shack beef-blend topped with DBGB’s BBQ pulled pork, jalepeño mayo, Boston lettuce and mustard-vinegar slaw.

David Chang’s Momofuku Shrimp Stack

Shack beef-blend cheeseburger topped with smoked and griddled shrimp patty, Momofuku Hozon Sauce, Bibb lettuce, pickled onion and salted cucumber.

Andrew Zimmern’s AZ Cabrito Butter Burger

Goat burger with herb butter topped with roasted tomato, charred onion and sweet pickle.

Daniel Humm's The Humm Burger

Shack beef-blend gruyere cheeseburger topped with all-natural applewood smoked bacon, celery relish, Bibb lettuce, truffle mayo and shaved fresh black truffle.

April Bloomfield’s The Breslin Burger
