Now through October 15, Heinz Foodservice is asking operators nationwide to “Bring on Heinz” and bring on their best original burger recipe for the chance to compete at the 2012 Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash®. The winning chef will receive a trip to Miami to put their culinary excellence to the test and compete against other leading chefs while representing Heinz at the annual bash.

The “Bring on Heinz” winning burger recipe will be selected by a panel of judges based on taste,
creativity, ease of preparation, visual appeal and best use of a Heinz product. The recipes must incorporate at least one of the new Heinz® Back of House sauce varieties, such as Sweet and Spicy Garlic Chili, Honey Barbecue, Heinz® 57®, Hickory Smoke Barbecue, Smokey Campside Barbecue, Classic Barbecue, Buffalo Wing or Lea & Perrins® Signature Steak.

The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, presented by Food & Wine magazine, takes place
February 23-26, 2012. Known as America’s most prestigious gourmet gathering, all proceeds from the festival benefit the Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Florida International University.
