DMK's Special Festival Burger

What do you get when you put Chef Michael Kornick, DMK Burger Bar and Jarlsberg Cheese together? A special one-time-only burger creation by a Chicago burger master. Kornick has agreed to concoct a burger for the Chicago Food Film Festival that festival-goers attending Saturday, Sept 25th's Burger 'N Beer Experience will get to taste. We are tempted to call it the...JARLSBURGER. (I didn't write that. Festival Exec Prod Seth Unger came up with that one..). Kornick will also be wowing the crowd with his amazing Green Chile Cheeseburger among others. Stay tuned.

Burger Heroes Will Be At Fest!

We've confirmed that Sam Sianis and son Bill from the Billy Goat Tavern ('cheeseborger, cheesborger..')will be at the festival Saturday night for the Burger N' Beer Experience. Also confirmed is Glenn Fieber from Solly's Grille near Milwaukee (home of the Butter Burger). Come meet the men behind these iconic burger joints. They will be there in support of my film Hamburger America, and because they are old friends.

Dates Have Been Announced!

Officially, the First Annual Chicago Food Film Festival will be held on Sept. 24th-25th, 2010. We cannot announce the location just yet - we are waiting for approval from the Chicago FD on egress and such since the space we are holding is a 'non-traditional' screening space. We can tell you however that the list of films are now public (click here) and that Chef Michael Kornick and DMK Burger Bar will be hosting our Burger 'N Beer Experience featuring Anat Baron's amazing film Beer Wars (a Chicago premiere for the film).

Check back regularly for more info and tickets for the festival go on sale very soon.
