Surely you haven’t found anything in common for McDonald’s and Michelin stars. Until now. However, Michelin-standard chefs have been involved in the development and launch of a new McDonald’s burger menu. A trio of premium burgers developed by a team of chefs whose collective experience includes stints at Michelin-starred restaurants and cooks to international royalty have been launched across the UK. Dubbed as the “Signature Collection,” the new burgers will be trialled at 28 restaurants in London, the south, and Manchester, before being rolled out to 400 restaurants next summer.
In place of thin, flimsy beef patties, sesame seed buns, and special sauce, the trio of Signature burgers are made with thick-cut, local British and Irish beef served on fancy brioche-style buns and come in three flavours: Classic, BBQ and Spicy.
In place of standard condiments like yellow mustard, ketchup and relish, toppings include everything from Beechwood smoked bacon, wholegrain mustard, jalapeno slices, and natural cheddar cheese.
Obviously, the burger giant is taking advantage of its new table service system, with customers having to wait longer than your standard Big Mac. The reason is because the UK has always been an important battleground for fast food chains.
