About the Contest

Saratoga Springs, NY (May 26, 2017) – Salt & Char has announced that it will be participating in The James Beard Foundation’s (JBF) Blended Burger Project™, a nationwide contest and challenge to make a “blended burger” by blending ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms to create a delicious, healthier, and more sustainable burger.

Chef Braden Reardon has chosen to feature Wagyu of the Woods, $36, to showcase a healthier burger, from Memorial Day, May 29 through July 31, 2017. Blending meat with mushrooms reduces calories, fat, and sodium while adding important nutrients like vitamin D, potassium, and B vitamins. A blended burger also brings more sustainable, plant-based items to menus allowing Americans to enjoy the taste and flavor of the burgers they love, knowing it’s a healthier and more sustainable preparation.

Diners can vote for Salt & Char and support the Blended Burger Project™:

  • Visit to view the gallery of blended burger photos, and cast your vote for the blended burger that best represents the most creative use of mushrooms, best flavor profile, and most appetizing appearance
  • You can also visit a participating restaurant from Memorial Day, May 29 – July 31, 2017 (view the entire list at and ask for the “blended burger”
  • Post your burger photos to social media with the hashtag #blendedburgerproject to spread the word

When the promotion concludes at 11:59pm EST on July 31st, 2017, the five (5) chefs with the most online votes will win a trip to the historic James Beard House in New York City where they will showcase their blended burgers at an exclusive event in 2018.

New this year, customers who vote for their favorite blended burger online will also be entered to win an all-expenses paid trip for two to the 2018 Blended Burger event at the James Beard House.
