National Burger Awards 2021 now open for entries
Entries for the 2021 National Burger Awards are now open, with pub chefs across the UK called on to put their best burger forward.
Entries for the 2021 National Burger Awards are now open, with pub chefs across the UK called on to put their best burger forward for the seventh year of the competition.
Once again, chefs from restaurant, pub and QSR operations will battle it out to see if their burger has what it takes to see off competition and be crowned National Burger of the Year.
Chefs will also face technical challenges using specific products for the chance to win other coveted titles, including National Burger Chef of the Year.
“It’s about time chefs around the UK had something to look forward to,” says Rosanna Spence, editor of Dine Out, Pub & Bar’s sister title, which organises the awards. “We’re determined to celebrate the best burgers out there next year and invite entries from all kinds of menus – from low-and-slow cooked meat to plant-based creations and everything between.
“This prestigious cook-off is all about the burgers and we cannot wait to start reading through the first wave of entries.”
What happened at the last National Burger Awards?
At the 2020 awards, which took place in February, Guy Greaves from The Botanist won the Vegan Burger of the Year accolade, taking home a trophy on behalf of the pub sector. The Double Cheeseburger from Bleecker was named as the best burger in the UK.
The latest instalment of the UK-wide search for the best burgers on British menus is sponsored by Americana, Danish Crown, Farm Frites, Hellmann’s, Kühne and Meatless Farm.
