BYOB:Build Your Own Burger

Thousands of Recipe Combinations for Patties, Condiments, Sides, and Beverages


"Speaking as a chef, I’d say the burger is one of the culinary world’s best canvases. That is to say, a moist, delicious patty topped with ingredients that provide an array of sweet, sour, saltiness, crunch, creaminess, and spice—all between two pieces of a great bread product—that’s a culinary gold mine ! There are so many possible components and ingredients that will work on (or as) a burger, that—if we were to try to include them all—this book would weigh more than your barbecue. So, instead, we provide great recipes for all the component parts of incredible burger meals, all of which can be mixed and matched in tens of thousands of ways."
