Burger Lab examines the elements that make up the ultimate burger: the perfect squishy bun; a pickle that has just the right amount of tang and crunch; the exact quantity of mayo and ketchup to deliver maximum flavor without over-powering the burger; and the ultimate pattie that's meaty, juicy and umami-intense. It is a science to get all the elements perfect, but in this unique cookbook Daniel Wilson shows us how to get the chemistry exactly right. The modern-day junk food is elevated to the sublime by Daniel Wilson's cheffy sensibilities; Burger Lab will change everything you thought you knew about burgers and arm you with everything you'll need to know to make cult-worthy burgers at home. Mouth-watering constructions include a Wagyu cheeseburger deluxe, a Fried chicken burger with slaw, a Reuben burger with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, thousand island on a rye bun, a BBQ pulled pork bun with pickles and more, plus recipes for condiments, chips and milkshakes to wash it all down. The book's unexpected and fun design, with close-up cross-sections of burgers, illustrative elements throughout and even including an amazing pop-out burger illustration on the endpapers make this the most exciting burger book ever!
