Bluesiana Burger debuts on Food Network Sunday

by Leslie Turk

Lafayette ad exec George Graham, whose Bluesiana Burger was first runner-up in last year’s Sutter Home Build A Better Burger competition in Napa Valley, Calif., will be featured this Sunday when the Food Network airs the competition for the first time. The program is part of the Food Network Challenge series; each year it's an exciting contest to watch — and will be even more so for local viewers this Sunday. Check it out at 7 p.m. (Cox Channel 53).

The competition was stiff, Graham says, and he knew going into it any one of the five finalists could have easily walked away with the $50,000 grand prize. Graham, a first-time entrant, was plucked from a field of 9,000 entries in the 18-year-old national competition. Read more here.
