Burger Bar by Hubert Keller is good. I hear Bobby Flay has a good one, but I haven't read it.

A book to get is The Hamburger: a History by Josh Ozersky, which I believe is the definitive work at this point.

Flay's book is called Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries, and Shakes -- rated 4½ stars on Amazon. There's an interesting little book, James McNair's Burgers, from 1992, that has a combination of well-known chefs' recipes, his own recipes, and winning recipes from the Build a Better Burger Contest.


Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and their readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

 

"A vasectomy might cost as much as a year’s worth of ice cream, but that doesn’t mean it’s equally enjoyable." -Ezra Dyer, NY Times

I have Bobby's book. Everything looks delicious in that book. I haven't made any of those recipes because we like our burgers more simple but I have cooked with his other books. Everything I make of Bobby's is a home run.
