MasterChef'sTim Anderson wins Slider Decider 2014 burger contest

BBC MasterChef 2011 winner Tim Anderson has won the Slider Decider 2014 contest at riverside London pub the Gun Docklands.

He came third in the inaugural competition last year.

The competition final, which took place last night before a panel of judges and members of the public, challenged professional chefs to create an original burger. The 15 entries included recipes from some of London's most popular restaurants, including Hixter, Brindisa and L'Anima.

Anderson's burger, titled the Dalstonburg Disaster and inspired by Japanese flavours, included a craft beer gua bao-style bun, Kewpee mayo and gochujang hispi cabbage slaw, aged mince with bone marrow and umami butter, craft beer burger cheese, brisket braised in craft beer, chipotle, and tonkotsu ramen broth, with fried fermented onions, fermented heritage carrot and nasturtium sauce.

It was then served with a cronut ("croissant-doughnut" mix) hole, and craft beer.

In second place was the Spanish-inspired smoked Iberico pork cheek, lardo and guindilla marmalade burger from Ember Yard's Jacques Fourie, while third prize went to a slider with blue cheese and caramelised onion, from BRGR.CO's Oscar Gomez Gomez.

Last year's winner, Jamie Thickett of Opera Tavern, also competed, with a burger including an Iberico pork slider, lobster, dried courgette, n'duja aioli and a saffron bun.
