--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."
"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

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!!!
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.
