Mortons & Montreal

Howdy!

Who would've thunk that a chain of steakhouses in the United States would have germinated from a hamburger at the Playboy Club in Montreal?

via
Howdy!

I'm not certain why opening the third Fatburger in Calgary is news, but then again, I don't really understand anything further south and west of the Erie Canal. However, I what I do want to know is when Fatburger is going to make it east and north of the Erie Canal.

Vera's Burger Shack, Parts 1 & 2

Howdy!

These are definitely videos that should be dealt with by the Victoria Burger Blog, seeing as how they are from the Left Coast. But also seeing as how they haven't gotten much love I figured it wouldn't hurt if I embedded them here.

Chelsea Cheeseburger on Etsy

Howdy!

Seeing as how there ain't much local hamburger news here, I'm expanding the concept of the Montreal Burger Report slightly and now will occasionally present Burger Art that I feel wouldn't be hurt by a little attention on your part.

Chelsea Cheeseburger by beforethegiraffe

It's a 4" x 6" acrylic painting. Small, actually tiny. If I had seen it live and knew slightly more about Ms. Giraffe's work, I'd consider calling it a study. But since I haven't and I don't, a painting it is. As Ms. Giraffe writes, she supplies "the world with big eyed girls & their dreamy friends."

I'll take her word for it that this is an early example of her work. In the fullscale version it looks a little rough around the edges. ie there are gaps, smudges and her lines aren't as precisely delineated as one might expect. But this adds to the naif-like charm of the painting (study).

I can't quite figure out if Chelsea Cheeseburger is using the french fries as ski poles, or if she is holding onto them for support since it doesn't quite look like she is the most balanced person in the entire world. And given her expression, I venture a guess that she was either looking down a black diamond trail, or contemplating precisely how difficult that next step she was planning on taking is going to be.

Given that when this painting was made, Ms. Giraffe states that she wasn't in the happiest of moods, I'd also venture a guess that Chelsea Cheeseburger could quite possibly be a reflection of Ms. Giraffe's state of mind at the time.

On sale for $20, which is better than a bargain. And I don't make a single red centy (or any other money of any other color for that matter) off the deal.

Gotta get down to Burlington

Howdy!

USA Today went out and listed 51 burger joints in the United States. One is close enough to contemplate visiting, The Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington, VT. According to Suzanne Podhaizer, food editor, Seven Days, they offer grass-fed beef, artisan cheeses, house-made pickles, and runny sunny-side-up eggs as toppings and more than 100 craft beers for your drinking pleasure. Although the idea of exposed brick and copper lighting fixtures along with a patio and backyard beer garden in a former McDonald's makes me wonder some.

Pictures of Hamburgers (week 41)

Howdy!

The rancor By frommert

On the Left Coast they're called Fatty Melts

Howdy!

Over at the Victoria Burger Blog they are going wild over Burger Melts, which they call Fatty Melts for some reason or another. However they decided to add peanut butter into the mix.

"Canada’s red-meat industry is the nation’s single-largest employer in the food industry. "

Howdy!

Buried at the end of this press release was this sentence: "Canada’s red-meat industry, with more than $20 billion in sales, is the nation’s single-largest employer in the food industry." It made me go "hmmmm." I don't think I had ever heard the term "red-meat industry" before.
