Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If you live in the Napa Valley and have a habit of pairing hamburgers with domestic wines, then perhaps you are familiar with McNair and Starr, the head judge and culinary director, respectively, for the Build a Better Burger National Recipe Contest. They have collected several years' worth of winning entries from the competition and arranged them into 16 party menus. They have given each menu an unfortunate name, like Jamaican Me Hungry and Moroccan Mystique, and, since the contest is sponsored by Sutter Home Winery, they offer choices from that vineyard to accompany each meal. Indeed, Sutter's wine often turns up where it has no business. Notably, the classic New Orleans Hurricane cocktail is reimagined to contain white zinfandel. The contest clearly thrives on over-the-top ideas, as many of the entries are complex and suffer from ingredient overkill; for example, the bouillabaisse sliders requires red snapper and shrimp for the patties, saffron threads in the mayonnaise, and fennel, tomato, and garlic-flavored olive oil in the relish. Side dishes are overly thought out as well, as in a shrimp remoulade potato salad (with mayo, mustard, ketchup, horseradish, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce). Desserts include a simple flan, washed down, naturally, with a glass of Sutter's Moscato. (Apr.)

Review

"Burger Parties is exactly what the name promises: an extravaganza of grilled proteins nuzzled between two buns such as "Little Italy Sausage Burgers," "Sweet-Hot Thai Burgers," and "Bouillabaise Sliders," as well as killer side dishes, suggested beverage accompaniments and some treats for the sugar tooth too."
--Parade.com, 5/28/10

"If you like to entertain, the beautifully photographed "Burger Parties" by James McNair and Jeffrey Starr offers new ideas for a backyard bash, with 16 all-inclusive, themed menus built around burgers."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 5/27/10 

“Check out the cookbook for some burger ideas that are guaranteed to make the first official barbecue of the season a winning event.”
--The Detroit News, 5/27/10

"Everyone loves burgers, of course, but perhaps it's time to come up with some exciting burger options to shake up the usual spread. To do so, we turned to a new cookbook called Burger Parties. Inside the 192-page paperback, filled with festive food photos, are recipes that include winners from Sutter Home Winery's annual Build a Better Burger Recipe Contest and Cook-Off.
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram, 5/26/10

"This is the white table cloth burger book. . . . What you have in this book is not just a fab burger recipe per chapter, you have all of the antipasti, sides, and desserts to accompany them, around the theme, as well as the wine pairings!  Of all the grilling books I brought in for a colleague to choose from for a gift to someone who regularly grills, she chose this one as the most well-rounded for a complete dining experience."
--MattBites.com, 5/21/10

"You would expect some fabulous burger recipes here. There are. But this book also contains a wealth of ideas for foods that complement burgers."
--Dayton Daily News, 5/10/10

"This collection is fun and features burgers in new and exciting ways. A burger isn’t necessarily just a burger if you have the ability to use a little imagination and experiment."
--Tuscon Citizen, 4/9/10

The recipes I was most interested in were the yearly winners. I had gone on the Build a Better Burger website and found many of the winners recipes of which some looked very good. I thought the book would include all winners but it did not. Not many of the recipes I liked on the web site were in the book. Only one. It included sides and salads which I did not want or find I wanted to use. Yes, very disappointed. I should have looked closer to the sellers details. Burger parties should have tipped me off. Not the seller's fault. Mine.

You cannot go wrong with this book, great price and award winning burger recipes. Book has ideas for side dishes to serve with each award winning
burger, table set ups and music. I have made the Thai Burger four or five times..fabulous!!! Some of the recipes may sound like a bit of work, but so worth it. Burgers in this cookbook are a huge hit with everyone I have served them to. Love this cookbook!!!

I really like this book. It gave me nice and not too complicated idea of new recipes when I invite some friends and I don't have to much time to cook.

So many good recipes - not a mixing of packaged, processed foods! Easy, delicious burgers and accompaniments.

There's still time to enter the 2010 Sutter Home Build a Better Burger Contest, but you'd better hurry. Entries are due by the end of July. This annual event will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

Even if you've never entered the contest, you can still enjoy it through the books that have come from the winning recipes. There was the first book, "Build A Better Burger: Celebrating Sutter Home's Annual Search for America's Best Burger" that was very favorably reviewed in this space when it was released in 2005. Five years later, there are more great burger recipes for you to try in the new book, "Burger Parties: Featuring Winning Recipes from Sutter Home Winery's Build a Better Burger Contest" by James McNair and Jeffrey Starr ($19.99, Ten Speed Press, 170 pp.).

McNair is the head judge for the annual event and Starr is the culinary director. Together, they've taken some of the best burgers and put together 16 menus to complement them, from appetizer to sides to drinks to desserts. It's a concept that is different from the first book, which featured all burger recipes. You're sure to enjoy the New Orleans-inspired Burger and Blues or the barbecue-themed Summer and Smoke. Whichever you choose, you'll have 16 pre-planned cookouts once you bring home this book.
