Ernest-Hemingways-Favorite-Hamburger-recipes
Whether you’re talking real or fictional, there are few characters throughout history as iconic as Ernest “Papa” Hemingway. During his time off and on in Cuba from 1939 to 1960, Hemingway would write two of his most celebrated novels For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man and the Sea, along with an enormous collection of personal documents that ran the gamut from notes on automobile insurance and bills to recipes that his staff would use to prepare his meals exactly how he liked them. The last part is where this gets interesting because Papa himself wrote one of the greatest burger recipes of all time more than five decades ago. The recipe calls for beef, garlic, green onions, India relish, capers, Spice Islands Sage, Beau Monde Seasoning and Mei Yen Powder, an egg, dry red wine and cooking oil that are meticulously combined and prepared “so the edges are crispy but the center red and juicy.” Art of Manliness recreated the burger–with a few helpful substitutions because some of the items are discontinued–and based on the pictures and reactions, it’s one of the best burgers around despite its lack of condiments, cheese or other accouterments.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
