Hamburger Gourmet

So you thought a hamburger was just a meat patties in a sesame-seed bun, right?

'With good bread, good meat and good vegetables, the possibilities are endless'. At least that's the mantra of this new book from a bunch of burger-lovers who together (photographer, stylist and owner of a chain of burger bars, in that order) have simplified the recipes, organised the book to make it uber-easy, and presented the 58 results in such a mouth-watering way, most who open this book will be reaching for the BBQ lighter before they know it.

Consider this lineup: there's pure meat, pure fish burgers, then ones that combine with spices, vegetable burgers, and some super ones (lobster and mango, scallops and cocoa?) as well as a few sweet treats to wrap the meal (blondies, cheesecake, that sort of thing).

Still not convinced? Did we mention that thie creators of this book went the extra mile and have included recipes for making the buns too - and grinding the meats? One further incentive - just look at the beef, sheeps milk cheese and cherry jam recipe.
