I own a few burger books but nothing like this one. The recipes and techniques are completely original yet still have that classic burger essence. I can't stop reading it because the stories and words and just so fun to read and the pictures are really eye catching. This is a must for your collection and I can't wait to dig in and start cooking even more!
