Burgers are no strangers to reinvention. Nor is Jim Kennedy, one of three finalists in the 2016 Boston Battle of the Burger Home Grillers competition. His take on the American classic brings us to Italy in the hills of Tuscany where herbs and aged cheeses dominate the culinary landscape.

Jim’s Tuscan Burger brings a freshness and a richness of flavor to every bite. It’s the kind of Burger that will leave you wondering why you haven’t been eating Burgers like this all along.

About Jim Kennedy

Jim KennedyI’ve been inspired as an avid home cook since watching Steve Raichlen, Julia Child and Jacques Pepin cook on television. For years, both my wife and I have been mastering recipes at home. We tried our hand at competition barbecue, ran a small spice business and more recently have taken to doing food for small groups at social functions.

I like to think that there is no better way to bring people together than to cook great food and spend time talking about the days’ events.
