Your #1 Guidebook to Buns and Burgers
Make masterful burgers, from top to bottom: In this cookbook by Gregory Berger, he teaches readers not only how to create delicious burgers, but also provides recipes for baking buns—the “holy grail of cooking from scratch.” From classic sesame to black charcoal hamburger buns, learn how to bake your way into creating an Instagram-worthy burger.
Easy to follow recipes: Berger understands that not everyone has the resources and skills of a professional chef. He himself is a work-at-home dad who got his start in the culinary world by picking up baking as a hobby, and now he’s gone on to create bread recipes for some of Sacramento’s top restaurants. Because of this, his cookbook intentionally emphasizes that all these crowd-pleasing burgers and buns can be made by anyone.
Tips and tricks for beginning and experienced cooks: We can’t devote endless hours to our meal creations, as much as some of us would like to. Cooking often calls for prioritization. Knowing that we’re making our buns from scratch, Berger shares with readers a few ideas for cutting corners in other areas―such as mixing Blood Mary spices into store-bought mayo for a delicious aioli sauce.
