WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A BURGER REVIVAL. Bold new burgers are appearing on the menus of the country’s top restaurants, reverently prepared by some of the nation’s best chefs. No longer left to the realm of roadside diner nostalgia, the American burger has become a fine dining event, expertly crafted and fiendishly devoured. Allow award-winning chef Samuel Monsour and noted burger critic and chef Richard Chudy to serve as your guides in this brave new world of hamburgery, bringing that energy, creativity, and skill to your own kitchen and backyard.
With a fearless do-it-yourself spirit and respect for the gritty, authentic flavors of American cuisine, Monsour and Chudy share 120 mouthwatering recipes to reawaken your taste buds and set your grills ablaze. No top-down or ordinary “themed” burgers here. Instead, these renegade chefs provide you with the tools and inspiration to realize your own wild creations. (See their baker’s dozen of outrageously stacked burger “centerfolds” to fire up your imagination.)
