AWESOME THING WE ATE #917 | Is The Best Burger In Vancouver At Hawksworth?

February 28, 2014 

IMG_6354

by Andrew Morrison | Oh, it’s very close. This sublime fellow is a fat bastard of ground tenderloin, ribeye, and chuck flavoured with onion, garlic, and long peppercorns. It’s mounted with double smoked bacon, aged Canadian cheddar, a perfect onion ring, crisp lettuce, and fresh tomato. The sesame seed bun sustains quite a bit of squeezing and juice, and it comes generously smeared with an incredibly tasty ketchup-based house sauce that includes licks of sweet smoked paprika, ancho chilies, herbs de provence, Worchestershire sauce, brown sugar. With a side of hot and crisp-edged frites served with mayo, it weighs in at a hefty $19 and is absolutely in contention despite the high price tag (for a burger). Also in the running for the totally subjective title are the burgers of currency at Pourhouse, Mamie Taylor’s, The Oakwood (the new one), Cannibal Cafe, and Campagnolo Upstairs. Not in the running are the ghost burgers of gluttonies past at Feenie’s, DB Bistro Moderne, Au Petit Chavignol, and Fray. If basic is your bag, try Save On Meats or the internet hype machine known as Hamburger $2.85.

Vancouver, BC | A decade spent in England – working at top restaurants such as Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and visiting pubs in his downtime – might have influenced Chef David Hawksworth’s culinary career but it was his childhood memories of a family roast dinner that have driven the newest addition to Hawksworth Restaurant’s Sunday menu, launching this weekend.

Roast dinners are a quintessentially British weekend pastime and Chef Hawksworth’s fond recollection of Sundays spent relaxing with his parents, originally from Yorkshire in the north of England, resulted in the nostalgic addition of a roast dinner to the menu.

Hawksworth Restaurant will be launching a weekly roast feature to the brunch menu, starting this Sunday (December 8th) with a juicy Kurobata rack of pork accompanied by pancetta spiced brussel sprouts, roast potato, cranberry, pork jus for $34.

With a similar climate to the UK, winters in Vancouver are the perfect time to indulge in a comforting roast – finishing off a perfect Sunday of a walk around Stanley Park or stroll along the sea wall. Read more

Vancouver, BC | Yesterday, Paul Moran won the inaugural Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship competition, held at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts. The 26-year-old from Kelowna withstood the heat of the kitchen to beat nine other finalists to win a $10,000 cash prize presented by Chefs’ Table Society of BC and a stage at an international restaurant of his choosing.

During yesterday’s final, Paul cooked alongside nine other contestants – each finalist created a recipe using specified ingredients and created their dish for the panel of Canada’s most revered chef judges. Paul made it to the final three with 23-year-old Brad Masciotra from London, Ontario and 27-year-old Carmen Ingham from North Vancouver, BC who was named Le Creuset’s Rising Star. The trio was challenged to a black box cook-off using the mystery ingredients of Freybe Schinkenspeck, steelhead trout, lobster, meyer lemon, heart of palm and almonds to create a winning dish.

Paul’s main and dessert dish wowed the panel of judges with his creativity and he won points for his technical ability, judged by Hawksworth Restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine Kristian Eligh and President of the Chefs’ Table Society of BC Chef Scott Jaeger in the kitchen. Paul also won over the judges during a taste test that impressed the panel of Chef David Hawksworth, Chef Vikram Vij, Chef Normand Laprise, Chef Mark McEwan, Chef Anthony Walsh and respected food writer Jacob Richler.

“All the judges have been blown away by the dedication, passion and creativity of the young chefs,” says Chef David Hawksworth. “We created this competition to find the creme of Canada’s culinary talent and we’ve found it in Paul Moran. I’d like to thank the judges for giving their time and providing these emerging chefs with the inspiration to take their culinary career to the next level. Read more
