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.
