Recipe of the Week: Burgers
52 Easy Recipes for Year-round Cooking

by Sally Sampson


"Like great art, burgers were a natural idea that sprung up independently all over the world," writes Sally Sampson. "And in the end, although most countries have their own versions, there are few foods, save apple pie, that are quite so completely and thoroughly American."

Burgers never seem to go out of style. They are suitable for any season and can cure any craving. In her latest title, Recipe of the Week: Burgers, Sampson provides 52 easy, succulent recipes and offers several creative variations that turn this all-American meal and classic 4th of July favorite into simple gourmet fare.

Recipe of the Week: Burgers will satisfy any palate from the picky eater to the adventurous foodie. Recipes include: Lamb Burgers with Dates and Walnuts; Mozzarella, Canadian Bacon and Grilled Pineapple Burger; Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers; Cognac and Chive Burger; Pizza Burger; and Salmon Burgers with Mint. Sampson even reveals a fresh approach to homemade ketchup using delectable spices like cinnamon, brown sugar, and allspice.

Packed with stunning photography and humorous anecdotes about the origin of each recipe, Recipe of the Week: Burgers is the most comprehensive book on burgers yet—so light the grill and pick a week!
