The biggest event of the South Beach Wine and Food Fest -- which begins in just 10 days, people -- is the great Burger Bash. To get everyone appropriately pumped for this year's event, we've been interviewing the top contenders. We've already spoken Michael Schlow, defending champ Katie Lee Joel, and New York's Michael Psilakis. Next up: Ken Brown, from LA burger heavyweight Counter
Burger Maker: Ken Brown, The Counter, known in LA for their custom built burgers.
Why did you decide to join the Burger Bash this year? It is my first time. We decided to do it because we're in good company, and we consider ourselves a leader in the industry and we want to throw our hat in the ring.
And what's the strategy? Our strategy is not unlike our strategy every day in the restaurant—focus on good quality products.
But are you ready to feed so many people? Production is what my personal strength. What are we feeding 5,000? I've done 12 - 15,000 before no problem.
