Hi, all,

The topic of how to make a really good burger has come up several times. I was poking around the 'net, and found an illustration from a book being released in Dec. of this year.

If you have a spare $650, and the time to read 2000 pages, you will find out how to make a really great burger (among other things.) Its by Nathan Myhrvold, who did win 1st at the 1991 World Championship of Barbecue in Memphis. The book is named “Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking”.

The link goes to a 5 Mb .pdf brochure download about the book. Page 6 illustrates the burger. the book_spreads.pdf

While I'd love to read thru the book, I suppose it will be a little frustrating for those of us who can't come up with $3K for a kitchen centrifuge. :ohmy: Likewise, as is noted by the author, some states limit the purchase of lab glassware that makes for really good kitchen utensils.

    Yes, and free shipping! That definitely puts it on my infinite wish list.
  • Hmm... $650 to be told to use 70/30 ground beef with a generous amount of DP Raising the Steaks mixed it? (I'm assuning that they really _do_ mean the best burger ever.)

    Wow. How many people will buy a $650 cookbook?
