Wine Country Burger


Not too long ago, in some random airport, I ordered something called a “wine country burger”, and it was by far the best airport food I have ever eaten. It was so good, in fact, that I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

The wine country burger is a beef patty topped with roasted red peppers, roasted tomatoes, balsamic greens and goat cheese. When my friends at Melissa’s Produce sent me some beautiful sweet kapia peppers recently, I thought, “mmmmmm that would be great on a wine country burger”, so I roasted them up and made myself a feast.

Hopefully the random airports I’ll be flying through over the next few weeks will have some amazing hidden food gems. I find airports to be either hit or miss when it comes to this stuff. Does anyone have an airport restaurant they love? What’s the best airport in your opinion?
