Umami Burger Serves Up the Mindy Burger by Mindy Kaling
Umami Burger announced today the latest collaboration in its Artist Series, Mindy Kaling’s “The Mindy Burger” benefitting Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

“Mindy Kaling is a brilliant comedic talent, simultaneously fearless, sharp and approachable,” said Paul Clayton, CEO of Umami Burger. “Her culinary talents have a similar sensibility. The Mindy Burger will be popular with food lovers everywhere.”

The Mindy Burger features Umami Burger’s signature beef patty topped with pickled jalapeño, fried onion strings, and house-made Sriracha Aioli on Umami Burger’s signature bun. It will be available for $13 starting today September 1, 2015, at participating Umami Burger locations nationwide.

Mindy Kaling added, “I love Umami and I was so honored to be able to create my own burger. Spicy and cheesy, it reflects my own personality.”

Mindy Kaling lives in Los Angeles and is currently filming her hit series, “The Mindy Project.” Kaling recently announced a national book tour for her second book, “Why Not Me?,” a follow up to her beloved New York Times bestselling book, “Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me?”

One dollar from each burger will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Pancreatic cancer is one of the nation’s deadliest cancers, with a five-year survival rate of just 7 percent. Based in Manhattan Beach, California, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has set a goal to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020 through research, patient support, community outreach, and advocacy for a cure. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network provides numerous resources, and education for patients and families living with the disease.

Named “Burger of the Year” by GQ Magazine, Umami Burger creates unique burgers highlighting the 5th savory taste sense called, umami. Just like sweet, sour, salty and bitter, Umami is a taste sensation found in certain ingredients that helps make your meal even more enjoyable. Umami Burger produces all of its own condiments, cheeses, and grinds its meat in-house throughout the day. All of the beef burgers are made with hand ground, hand formed premium steak. The result is a sophisticated, tightly edited selection of burgers, sides and accompaniments. A national phenomenon, Umami Burger has a devoted cult following among food lovers around the world.

Season Four of “The Mindy Project” premieres Tuesday, September 15 on Hulu. “Why Not Me?” will also be available for digital download and in bookstores on September 15.
