Zinzan Brooke tackles a Steinlager All Blacks gourmet burger

Invitation for media to share a meal at Gourmet Burger Kitchen
St Paul’s Church Yard, City of London EC4M 8AL

Twenty years after winning the Ruby World Cup, All Blacks legend Zinzan Brooke is championing the Steinlager All Blacks burger, exclusive to Gourmet Burger Kitchen restaurants nationwide.

One of the world’s most famous former flankers (he played No 8) is a regular diner at the Gourmet Burger Kitchen restaurant in Windsor, his home town.

The rugby player is championing the up-market quintessential Kiwi burger, made with 100% Aberdeen-Angus Scotch beef, beetroot, egg, pineapple, matured cheese, salad and relish.

Zinzan Brooke said, “Rugby players typically burn about 880 calories an hour in play, so it is essential to eat food that’s a rich source of energy and protein and the Steinlager All Blacks burger certainly hits the spot. Perhaps one of the secrets to the success of New Zealand athletes is their love of pure, delicious foods that taste great.”

There are 32 Gourmet Burger Kitchen restaurants in England and as well as the business employing many New Zealanders and Australians, the famous New Zealand chef Peter Gordon helped create the recipes.

A competition with a prize of a flight for two to New Zealand (courtesy of Air New Zealand) plus £2,000 cash is running for those who buy a Steinlager All Blacks burger for the duration of the Rugby World Cup.

England, Scottish and Welsh rugby fans who cannot stomach support of their All Blacks opposition need not worry as they have 27 other choices of gourmet burger from a plain Classic to a Chilli, Cajun, Blue Cheese or Jamaican.
