Australia's “healthy” burger brand Grill’d has announced its new partnership with Heston Blumenthal’s “favorite mushroom-based meat,” Fable. The plant-based Fable Burger has four new flavors on the menu.
Michelin star chef Heston Blumenthal said: “I never thought that I would allow another restaurant to serve one of my very special burgers until I met the great team at Grill’d. All four of the Fable Burgers are awesome, but the Heston Fable Burger is the star of the show. The Fable Pattie has a rich, satisfying mushroom flavor that tastes like slow-cooked meat, complemented by the plum and spiciness of hoisin sauce, the fresh texture of Japanese coleslaw and lightly grilled tofu. It has all the umami, all the satisfying things you would expect from a burger, but there is no meat in it. Delicious, 100% natural, filling and simply delicious. "
For the new Fable range, Heston has created a tasty Fable Spicy Cheeseburger, which is on the menu across the country, and a Heston Fable burger in limited edition, which is available in selected restaurants.
“Inspired by Peking duck pancakes, the limited edition burger is an evolution of the menu at the celebrity chef's in-house restaurant, The Perfectionists & # 39; Café in London, and for the first time one of Heston Blumenthal's burgers is served outside his restaurants, ”says Fable.
Limited to only 4000 burgers across Australia. Reservations for the "Heston Fable Burger" in selected Grill’d restaurants are essential and will be published via grilld.com.au/heston. Sessions begin August 8-22. NSW residents can also register their interest online to enjoy the Heston Fable Burger experience when food restrictions are relaxed.
"The 'Heston Fable Burger' 'is served with Heston's signature gastronomic flair and brought to the table under a smoke-filled bell with silver service accents," said Fable.
For $ 35 per person, the limited edition burger is served along with Grill & # 39; d Famous Chips with a touch of white miso mayo and a selection of premium wines (Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir Wines or Merritt Chenin Blanc), local beer or not served -alcoholic drink.
Grill’d founder Simon Crowe says: “We are very excited to bring the Heston Fable Burger to Grill’d. By partnering with Fable, we had the opportunity to work with one of the best chefs in the world, Heston Blumenthal, and add four new Fable meat mushroom burgers to our plant-based menu that taste just as good as the real ones. It is the next step in our mission to discover a whole new world of taste and to question the status quo with innovative, healthy and carefully manufactured products. "
