"Every chef dreams of extending his vision to appeal to as many people as possible. Keller has done that with his restaurants and this book, by sharing with cooks how to build the best burgers."—Guy Savoy

"We knew everyone loves burgers, but we wanted to offer something new. What if we reimagined burgers and applied our fine-dining culinary training to create the best-tasting burgers possible? We would take them seriously because, we noticed, burger lovers take the subject seriously. Very seriously."

Those are the words of Hubert Keller, nationally acclaimed chef and owner of the dining hotspot Burger Bar with locations in Las Vegas, St. Louis, and San Francisco, and host of the PBS-TV series Secrets of a Chef, explaining how he and his colleagues brought their passion for high-quality food to everyone's backyard favorite: the burger.

In Burger Bar, Chef Keller and Penelope Wisner show you how to create a mouthwatering, out-of-body burger experience—the ultimate burger. Through easy-to-follow recipes illustrated throughout with gorgeous color photographs, this cookbook features a collection of 50 succulent burgers complete with Keller's personal suggestions for sauces, buns, and condiments.

Just imagine a rich beef burger stuffed with luscious melted blue cheese, a BLT turkey club burger, or a smoked salmon burger. There's an unforgettable lamb burger with a Provençal flair. You can go vegan with the Southwestern Bean Burger or a seasonal temptation that features pumpkin and quinoa. And let's not forget dessert: wow your family and friends with a knockout s'mores "burger" or tease your eyes and palate with a rich chocolate-hazelnut ganache "burger" draped with a slice of mango gelée "cheese" and enclosed in a warm glazed donut "bun."

The real beauty of this book—other than the burgers themselves—is that you can re-create the customized, build-your-own concept of Burger Bar. You can suit your taste, time, and budget by paring down presentation or by borrowing condiments or sauces, and even techniques, from one recipe and applying them to another. Keller encourages you to try the burgers that have won over thousands of fans and make your own burger masterpieces.

In addition, you'll find recipes for spectacular fries and sides, as well as guidance in selecting meat, forming patties, pairing burgers with beer, and cooking the juiciest burgers you've ever tasted.

If you aren't wishing for a burger by now, you will be once you sample the culinary wonders that Burger Bar has to offer!
