The-World-Is-Your-Burger

A great burger can solve all your problems. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but when done right, a burger can at least make you forget about the worries of the world for a little while. We’re not the only ones who feel that way, The World Is Your Burger is a new Phaidon title that celebrates the humble hamburger. Included in the 400-page tome are essays, photos, and a deep dive into the history of the burger. Far from a simple cookbook—though there are 12 recipes—The World Is Your Burger is an ode to a dish. Learn about fast food versions from the likes of Mickey D’s and White Castle, along with more gourmet takes. From the original research to the mouth-watering photography, this is the coffee table book for those of us who can’t wait to fire up our grill. Grab yourself a juicy one and read this book. Just try to keep the ketchup splotches to a minimum.
