Welcome to the Pantry! Part 1: Burgers

Gitaburger2.JPEGWe've done some renovations around here at All in a Weekend. They've finally given us a pantry! We can get pretty hungry down here in the basement of the CBC building, so we'll be stopping in here every week for a while to see whats on the shelf.

Every week on The Pantry, we are going to take a closer look at something you might find in your pantry or kitchen.

And this week, we're talking about burgers.

Our Jennifer Warren takes us to the Nouveau Palais in Montreal's Mile End, where young chef Gita Seaton (in the photo) recently took over the kitchen at this classic Montreal diner.

Dave eats a high-end burger from Kitchenette while on the air.

And burger fanatics Chris "Zeke" Hand and Ryk Edelstein of the Montreal Burger Report weigh in on what they think separates the real burgers from the pretenders.
