What's Hot with Rebecca Plaza-Ponte, Buyer of All Things Tops
What makes the best burger is the meat, but what makes the mouth memory is the toppings. This month, Rebecca brings us toppings that topple the conventional ketchup-mustard-mayo motif, and relish a new kind of garnishing approach!
Bandar Monkey Foods Sauces
They’re not monkeying around when it comes to cutting-edge condiments for your grilling grub. Try the Masala Spiced Tomato Ketchup with cumin and clove on your dog, the Mint-Cilantro Chili Sauce on grilled chicken, the Spicy Mango Chili Sauce on your burger and the Tangy Tamarind Dipping Sauce on grilled veggies. Indian flavors. American taste.
Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup
Elevating the Everyday
The classic variety is highly evolved with a perfect balance of sweet and salty — nearly perfect. And the spicy variety? Think chipotle, cilantro and lime juice. Love it.
Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Mayonnaise
The Divine Alternative
Sir Kensington’s mayonnaise contain 33% less fat and 100% more flavor, especially the Chipotle variety, which has a lovely little kick. Plus, they’re made with cage-free eggs and are non-GMO certified. Available in Classic and Chipotle.
Gaucho Ranch Chimichurri Sauce
Grill a Better Burger
A fabulous chimichurri sauce if you’re not up to making your own, this blend is so subtle it enhances the natural flavors of a burger, rather than covering them up. A traditional and popular recipe, it is a delicious mix of parsley, garlic, vegetable oil, vinegar and spices with hints of oregano. Though it can work on fish, chicken, even pork, it’s really, really superb on a Market District Certified Angus Beef® burger. We know, right?
