University of Kentucky, Lexington
At the University of Kentucky, the burger program is be reimagined in light of a construction projects, says Scott Kohn, executive chef/assistant director. However, he says the department is considering moving the program to its new butcher shop.
"We've been experimenting with our aged beef," Kohn says. "We age the animals for three weeks before we start processing them. The ground beef is aged and top quality."
For this burger, the ingredients take their cue from a Margherita pizza. The burger features mozzarella, red sauce, fresh basil and a balsamic mayo.
