Electrolux Professional will be the equipment sponsor at the 2017 National Burger Awards, being held at The Metal Works Islington on 22 February.
Chefs will be competing to win in three categories: the best Technical Burger, the best Signature Burger and the overall National Burger Awards Champion – who will also take home the £1,000 prize.
Competitors will be cooking on Electrolux Professional cooking equipment during the event.
As part of the manufacturer’s support, it is offering prospective competition entrants the chance to practice on its appliances ahead of the final, at its Center of Excellence in Luton.
The Signature Burger category will be judged on: how the burger is created and assembled, preparation and cooking of meat, condiments and extra fillings, flavour profile, texture, quality and consistency of the burger and creativity of presentation.
While the Technical Burger award will be judged on: creativity with supplied ingredients, originality in cooking method and presentation, and added flair and personal touches (although no other ingredients may be added).
The awards will also feature Electrolux Professional’s training and development chefs creating their favourite burger to inspire competitors.
