In-N-Out back in London for lunch!

Gavin Lucas

Shit-the-bed, legendary West Coast American burger brand In-N-Out is back in London for the first time since its frankly bizarre one-day pop-up in Hendon four years ago. WHOOP! As it did before, it “announced” its pop-up in a local London newspaper - this time the Camden New Journal - with a pretty unassuming advert:

In-N-Out will be resident at the Estancia Brasil Steak House, 117 Finchley Road, London NW3 6HY for just four hours tomorrow (21 September 2016) from 11am to 3pm. Expect massive queues and a whole lot of burger nerdery. And seeing as I still remember the pain of being tied to my desk last time, you can bet your ass I'll be at this one. See you in the queue!

Nearest tube: Swiss Cottage. 

Shout out to both Time Out and Hot-Dinners (and my mate Jon) for bringing this to my attention!

PS: I went to this and In-N-Out only catered for about 200 people. There was about 1000 people outside! They don't do these events in London to feed Londoners but to keep a hold of their European trademark. Allegedly. Anyway - who cares - the bottom line is that I ate nothing but left with a bad taste in my mouth. I don't think I'll ever be able to think of In-N-Out positively again. Boo, hiss etc


Is yours Britain's Best Burger?

Burgerac

Well, I didn't see this coming: tip top mayo brand Hellman's has appointed me as its burger ambassador. As part of my role, I will lead an expert judging panel who will decide which entry to Hellman's national burger competition deserves to be crowned Britain’s Best Burger...

Open to all venues serving burgers, the contest (which is part of Hellman's current Grilltopia campaign) comes with a whopping £10K of PR support for the venue that lifts the title to help make it famous for its burger. The competition will also award £2,500 worth of PR to its six regional winners in: Scotland, the North, the Midlands and East Wales, the South East and the South West.

Venues have until 31 July 2016 (that's this Sunday!) to enter their best burger recipe online for their chance to win and become burger-famous.

I'm honoured to have been asked by Hellman's to be a judge of this competition and I can’t wait to check out the entries! For me, the winning burger will have to combine quality ingredients with a well-executed concept that perfectly balances different flavours and textures in a way that makes the whole thing pure joy to eat. Get involved!

Lamb Burger by Jessica Dance

Burgerac

Today I doff my hat in the direction of model maker and prop stylist Jessica Dance and photographer David Sykes for their collaborative Comfort Food Series of images...

The above burger is knitted from 100% lambswool, hence the work's title, Lamb Burger. Yes, the chips and chip carton are also knitted. Imagine - comfort food you can actually cuddle!

Here are some more images from the duo's (hopefully ongoing) series. Feast your eyes!

 It may be tricky to tell, but every bit of cheese (and grape) is knitted - here's a crop / close-up:
