WHAT SOME OF AMERICA'S TOP CHEFS AND RESTAURATEURS ARE SAYING ABOUT AMERICAN BURGER REVIVAL

GUY FIERI, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives 

“WHERE’S THE BEEF?! Yeah baby, its all right here in this book. These real-deal burger bad boys break it all down so that you can make it all happen on your own at home.”

CHEF GRANT ACHATZ, Alinea, Next, and Aviary

“For me, the burger has always been a mix of emotions: the satisfaction I felt seeing people gobble up the patties I flipped at my parents’ diner as a kid; the reckless freedom of cruising through the drive thru with my high school friends; the embarrassment of defending the burger to Michelin-starred cooks in Europe as a culinary student. Coming full circle, it was those A&W memories that led me to create my own laud- ed version of this great American icon at Alinea. Reading Samuel and Richard’s book will inevitably give you that same dose of deep-rooted nostalgia and inspire your own memorable burger creations.”

CHEF MICHAEL SCELFO, Alden & Harlow, Naco Taco 

Passion and creativity: that’s what Sammy and Richard bring to the burger game. Sammy’s unharnessable spirit of innovation and Richard’s deep expertise come together to create delicious and cutting-edge burgers. What you have in front of you is not a “flip through and put it on the shelf” book, but a fun, creative, and inspiring tool for making what is no doubt America’s true national cooking and eating pastime.”
