How do you pick a favorite older brother? That's kind of how it feels to choose a winning burger between the likes of Morimoto, Bobby Flay, and Michael Symon at Burger Bash. As Rachael Ray promised, this year's event had the most competing patties of any Burger Bash — 34, to be exact — and festivalgoers were obliged to make a Sophie's choice of sorts to pick the winner.
We didn't get around to trying all 30-plus burgers, so we can't confidently say that one was best. Attendees seemed to have a favorite — Bobby Flay took home the People's Choice Award and Jeff Mauro the Judges' Choice Award — but we did select seven burgers to showcase as our favorites of the night. Read on to get inspired — and hungry.
