Last night Iron Chef Michael Symon reigned supreme at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash. The field was tight and the competition tough, but Symon scored the People’s Choice award with his Yo! Burger, a towering artform of provolone cheese, fried salami, onions and a hot Hungarian mustard sauce. Symon stood front and center at the B Spot table to greet fans as they stepped up to get their hands on the juiciest burger at the bash. One bite of the burger left them searching for napkins while simultaneously going in for bite number two.
Snapshots from the star-studded party:
When Symon was presented with the People’s Choice Award for the best burger, the crowds’ cheers were matched at the mic with the chef”s trademark chuckle and the secret to his burger win: “Meat on meat.” Apparently a perfectly crisp addition of a little fried salami never hurt any burger.
