In early August, we’ll tally the votes, then, a panel of food experts selected by the James Beard Foundation will determine five winners from the top 25 finalists with the most online votes.

All voting and judging by the panel of experts will be based on the following equally weighted critera: 

  • Culinary creativity
  • Flavor profile
  • Presentation

The five winning chefs will each win $5,000 AND a trip to New York City to cook their blended burger at the historic James Beard House. At the gathering, guests will select their favorite burger of the night for a special People’s Choice recognition.
