WA Day celebration was a fitting occasion to uncover the burger that best represents our State on a plate, with Gus Gallagher clinching the title of Best Burger in the West with his ‘If You Got Beef then Bring the Ruckus Burger’.
The hunt for the ultimate burger using ingredients farmed, grown or produced in Western Australian was an initiative of Buy West Eat Best program, in liaison with Celebrate WA and Justin Bell from Jus Burgers.
Burger buffs were invited to create their most innovative burger and submit their recipes via the BWEB facebook page.
The four finalists had the benefit of a one-on-one mentor session with Justin to help them finesse their recipe before the cook-off on-stage at the WA Day celebrations at Elizabeth Quay.
The judging panel for the finals cook-off included Justin Bell, well-known food critic Rob Broadfield, and Rob Nixon, presenter at Nicko’s Kitchen YouTube Channel.
