Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Showcases the history and symbolism of the iconic American sandwich. (Mar.)
Barbara Jacobs
A sometimes serious, occasionally irreverent bite of what Tennyson claims is America's favorite food, the hamburger. Trivia buffs will appreciate the colorful facts--Willard Scott debuting as the first Ronald McDonald in 1963, the founder of Big Boy creating the first double-decker burger, and others. Designers and collectors will enjoy the bounty of pictures and documented memorabilia. And those devoted to hamburgers will easily digest--pun intended--the history of this sandwich. This book is definitely family fare, especially with its listing of restaurants offering the perfect burger and the final, no-questions-asked recipe.
