Gourmet Big Mac

Watch a Big Mac Turn Into a Gourmet "Le McCube" in 5 Seconds

We've got a new partnership with Foodbeast, who will be sharing breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us regularly. Today, Elie Ayrouth shows us how to give an ordinary Big Mac the gourmet treatment.

Question: What makes gourmet food "gourmet"? For a dish to earn the coveted title, does it need a certain amount of truffle oil present or must it pair well with a vintage pinot noir?

Dictionary.com defines gourmet as such: "of or characteristic of a gourmet, especially in involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation." Translation: a meal or dish that features fancy ingredients you can’t pronounce that’s served on a table with cloth napkins.

Or, if you’d like a more visual representation of "gourmet," examine the photo below:

Naturally, our investigation of gourmet’s elusive qualifications led us to wonder what would happen if this concept of "skilled preparation" were applied to your every day burger. Would a McDonald’s burger disguised as a gourmet dish be like hiding an elephant in peacock feathers? Or, more importantly, would one even be able to tell the difference?

We sought to find the answer using a bag of McDonald’s fries and a burger. Watch as we transform your average Whopper into some classy ass gourmet sh*t.
