4food Executive Chef Vincent Mangual is at it again. This time he is adding fresh pumpkin to your diet. Pumpkin Hash makes its 4food debut today, just in time for this unmistakably fall weather. Chef Vinny cubes fresh picked pumpkin and sautés it with tart Granny Smith apples, dried cranberries, honey, and fresh pressed orange juice. The tender morsels are then tossed with walnut oil, toasted pumpkin seeds, and fresh parsley. The end result is a subtly sweet cornucopian autumn harvest with a salty bit of crunch. You can catch the Pumpkin Hash in this month’s featured (W)holeburger Pumpkin Fiver, paired with grass-fed beef, caramelized apple, Dijon mustard, and onions on a multigrain bun. Although, don't be surprised if the new Pumpkin Hash Scoop replaces your stale granola bars as your afternoon snack of choice!
ON THE CHART/CHARTBEAT: LATINO BUILDS AND DUCK DUCK GOOSE MEETS BEEF BEEF TURKEY
Fantastico did not have such a fantastic week, Angela’s Veggie 2 seemed to get harvested, and Burger De La Hoya finally met his match! Falling to #10 this week is RENANGO’S The Healthy Choice, followed by some slippages into a three way tie at #9 between KYLEIDOSCOPE’S El Puertorriqueno, RHA70’S Michigan Wolverine Burger, and IAMTHEMATT’S The Maki. DOCKERYFARMS’S The Jerk Burger remains the same at #7 and is as solitude as Obama was during a prime time debate with his namesake opponent. The three way beefy tie at #5 showcases a few newbies and a legend in ALEXC’S Brioche-Beef-Mushroom & Onions-Pancetta Bacon-Cheddar-Lettuce-Pickle-Barbeque “all business, all delicious” Midtown Cheddar Bacon, the girth of CLIFFHYPP’S condiment loaded and tasteful concoction of Brioche-Beef-Mofongo-Sweet Plantains-Manchego-Lettuce-Pickle-Tomato-Horseradish Cream-Jerk Sauce-Ketchup Hispaniola Fat Boy, and the platinum sales sensation of AHARRIS’S CaliBurger. Another new moment of delicious potential insanity welcomes PROMSPLEEN’S Brioche-Beef-Mac & Cheese-Pancetta Bacon-Cheddar-Onion-Pickle-Garlic Mayonaisse Bacon Cheddar Madness at #2. Gobble Gobble ? Who’s There ? It’s this week’s calendar appropriate #1 bird in JFAVUZZA’S “even better”and ever golden Better Turkey Burger.
