The annual Burger Bash Detroit – Burgers and Brew Bash took place Friday June 9, 2017 at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market. The event allowed attendees to sample burgers, sides, sweets, and in some cases craft beers from local establishments and culinary schools. Attendees of the event had an opportunity to vote for “Most Unique Burger,” “Most Flavorful Burger,” and “Best Turkey Burger.” A panel of judges was assembled to select the “Best All-Around Burger” and “Best Sweet.” Some of the impressive local participants competing for Best Burger included:
- Toast in Ferndale and Birmingham, MI, featuring their Hoisin BBQ Burger

- Chalet in Royal Oak, MI, featuring their Tomatillo & Jalapeno Burger

Dorsey Culinary Academy Wins 1st Place at Burger Bash 2017
We are pleased to share that for the second year in a row, Dorsey Culinary Academy’s team, led by Chef Natalia Tarnavsky, won in the “Best All-Around Burger” category. The Uncle Rico’s Touchdown Burger, was Dorsey Culinary Academy’s “Napoleon Dynamite” themed entry that featured Havarti and a pipette of au jus that could be injected into the burger before eating it to make it a little juicier. The burger was served alongside smoked Gouda poutine tater tots with bacon and green onion.
As the winner in the “Best All-Around Burger” category, Dorsey Culinary Academy has earned entry into the 2017 World Food Championships, which will be held in Orange Beach, Alabama later this year. Good luck, Team Dorsey!
