In this video at Yahoo!, two-time Top Chef contestant Fabio Vivani, who was ousted from Season 8 for making a subpar burger, shows what he's learned since his loss by making "the perfect hamburger" (or in his words, "the perfect boorgur") made of two beef cuts seasoned with salt and pepp—AHHH, SALTED TOO EARLY.
He serves the patty on a griddled potato bun smeared with mayo and ketchup, accompanied by lettuce, grilled onions, and melted cheddar. The finished burger looks good, but Fabio's technique of salting the beef before forming the patties goes against Kenji's recommended technique of salting the patties right before cooking.
