Burgers & Burgundy Recap: John Tesar’s ‘Burger’

Mmm, mmm, good!
Mmm, mmm, good!

Nothing’s better than chowing down on a burger while watching the Cowboys play. (Well, maybe watching the God’s team win, but we won’t get into that.)

At DIFFA’s Burgers & Burgundy I had the chance to do both, all while listening to the smooth crooning of the Hunter Sullivan band. The event, held in the backyard of Preston Hollow residents Karen and Bill Seanor, featured seven chefs who were creating their burger masterpieces on site. The crowd was ridiculously stylish, and there were quite a few perfectly-tailored suits I couldn’t stop gawking at. All of the money raised went to DIFFA, serving those who are affected by HIV and AIDs in the DFW area.

Pictured above is one my favorite “burgers” from the evening, brought to you by John Tesar, the chef at Spoon. He gets creativity points for his spicy catfish sloppy joe. I may be a wimp, but I’d like to emphasize that it was spicy. The crunchy little pickle on top made this dish perfect to the last finger-licking bite.
