Burger joints, specializing in gourmet burgers and all of the perfect pairings including delicious milkshakes, have fired up their grills around the District. The once-simple hamburger is now dressed with exotic toppings — everything from avocado, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, fried pickles to a variety of cheeses. We have just the gourmet burger to satisfy your appetite. So gather your friends and family, and join Lauren as she shows you how to create the perfect combination of burgers and shakes. This episode of Capital Cooking will feature Wellington Burgers, Fried Pickles, Sweet Potato Fries and Chocolate Peanut Butter Adult Milkshakes.
