Pink Moscato
Après-Ski Triple Ginger Bacon Burgers
Jennifer Gentry
School Bus Driver
Steamboat Springs, CO
“Not only do I love the taste of a great burger, but also the textural combination of the ingredients and how it ‘feels’ in my mouth. I wanted to create a burger that was sweet and spicy, crunchy and juicy, with a chewy candied bacon topping, all wrapped up from the first bite to the last. Beware! This burger is deliciously addicting!”
Suggested wine pairing: Sutter Home Pinot Grigio

Pink Moscato
Chorizo Beef Burgers
Priscilla Yee  
Concord, CA
“My inspiration was a flavorful Spanish chorizo sausage that was always served at parties with a Spanish family when I was in college. There were other great appetizers as well, but the amazing flavor of that sausage stuck in my memory all these years, and I decided to build a burger around it. Now this burger evokes all those same festive memories.”
Suggested wine pairing: Sutter Home Zinfandel

Pink Moscato
The Heart and Seoul of Korea Burgers
Harrison Wheeler
Boynton Beach, FL
“I have always been inspired by Korean flavors. In this recipe, I have incorporated some of my favorite Korean ingredients to make a sublime burger. It includes gochujang (a spicy pepper paste) plus something that is bizarrely popular in Korea – Spam. I can promise you that you haven’t tasted a burger as unique and delicious as this!”
Suggested wine pairing: Sutter Home Zinfandel

Pink Moscato
Tidal Wave Butter Burgers
Devon Delaney
Westport, CT
“I have a great love of surf and turf dinners. I also love grilling my own crab cakes, so I wanted to bring all these inspirations together in a full-flavored burger. The butter burger is something I was taught by my mother as a great way to make the Worcestershire sauce rich and perfectly complementary to the beef. The spicy watercress salad goes so well with the crabmeat and the zesty lemon caper mayo is a natural for surf and turf!”
Suggested wine pairing: Sutter Home Chardonnay

Whistler Village Poutine Burgers
Ann Elkina
Senior Engineering Project Manager
Farmington Hills, MI
“The first time I had poutine was on a ski trip with friends in Canada. After a cold morning on the slopes with egos bruised, we took a well-deserved break in Whistler Village. Eating steaming hot fries doused in gravy with frozen fingers felt like it was the best meal we ever had. Later, when I created these burgers for my ski buddies, the first exclamation was ‘This tastes like poutine!,’ and despite a lack of bruised egos and cold, we felt like we were back in Whistler.”
