James Beard Is In The House, The “Spore Uproar” Burger That Is

19 Jun 2017 James Beard Is In The House, The “Spore Uproar” Burger That Is

Liquid Riot Chef de Cuisine Scott Whelan has chosen to feature the “Spore Uproar” through July 31, 2017 in James Beard Foundation’s Blended Burger Project. Blending meat with mushrooms reduces calories, fat, and sodium while adding important nutrients like vitamin D, potassium, and B vitamins. A blended burger also brings more sustainable, plant-based items to menus allowing Americans to enjoy the taste and flavor of the burgers they love, knowing it’s a healthier and more sustainable preparation.
