I've bought several burger books and a few of them have not really measured up but I like this one for its simplistic approach. The burger patties require a few and basic ingredients, I had always thought that there must be some sort of secret to making good burgers... Even though I am somewhat satisfied with the results that I have gotten so far, I think that I might tinker with the patty recipe a bit more reach perfection.

In terms of fries, which I just can't get enough of, the book explains the double frying method beautifully and simply... I always used to tell everyone that a single fry will either give you soggy and limp fries or crispy fries on the outside and raw potato on the inside which is really nasty to bite into! Also, the book confirmed my theory about soaking fires for a few hours before actually frying them!! There is good range of chips, fries, and wedges to go through... but there is beating just plain old good fries or chips!

The shakes in the book are also good but not spectacular. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that they will be a disappointment, I'm just saying that they are not Michelin Star material. I've tried three or four and was happy with the results, but the one that I had higher expectations for was the roasted marshmallow shake... it came out tasting like a plain vanilla shake... maybe I did something wrong, not really a catastrophe.

I enjoyed the presentation of the book and way it was printed, unlike all the other genres where illustrations are not necessary, I think printing a book on recycled brownish paper is fine, but not when it comes to cookery books!

Maybe being an American living in London has something to do with my pleasure in this book, but I would purchase this book again just for the milkshake "recipes". A simple substitution turned the blackberry cheesecake recipe into a simply amazing strawberry cheesecake milkshake, toasted marshmallow,roasted pineapple, peach bellini, dark chocolate milkshake with "fluffy" coconut cream anyone? These make a seriously yummy alternative dessert on a hot (or even lukewarm) summer's day!

All American Food from All American Iron Chef 27 April 2009
By rodboomboom - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Flay is super active these days, as are many of TV fame, with shows, cookbooks, products, restaurants, etc. Flay has written many previous excellent cookbooks, especially for us home cooks, e.g. grilling and Spanish-American fare.

This one hits one of his loves, that All-American fare of burgers, fries and shakes. His opening of restaurants around this trio inspired this recipe collection for the home.

There are 33 burger offerings, 10 for fries and rings, and 17 shakes. Also included is condiments and sauces, as well as sources and helpful tips on each of the three fare. I found this really useful with such hints as finger punch in burgers to prevent proverbial flying saucer dome of a burger, and dome cover to melt cheese, as well as double cooking fries and advice on blending shakes to really helpful in providing consistent, quality results.

Am so looking forward to trying this offering, but for now have really enjoyed serving: Trattoria Burger; Cheyenne Burger; Salmon Burger with Slaw; Sweet Potato Fries; and Pina Colada Shake; Toasted Marshmallow Shake.

This is really great cookbook for home! As are all Clarkson Potter cookbooks, rich layout with four color photos make it succulent to get your burger/fry/shake mojo going.

Not much to making hamburgers 15 April 2009
By blankcb26 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just received this book today and am a little underwhelmed. It meets my criteria for cookbooks (lots of pictures!! except the one I really want to make) but he really doesn't do very much to the actual hamburger patty. His philosophy is pretty much to keep the actual burger simple with most of them only getting the addition of kosher salt and black pepper. All of his recipes really just toy around with putting different cheeses/condiments/vegetables etc. Before buying the book I read that there were going to be "no meatloaf" burgers but I thought there would be some spices or ingredients that he would put into the meat mixture to spice up each burger. In the end the book is wonderfully put together and I the recipes seem like they will come out fine.

Love it! It even has salmon and tuna burgers too. 18 May 2012
By MagnoliaSouth - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have had this book for almost exactly one year and boy oh boy, I do love his book. Believe it or not, I'm not a Bobby Flay fan (even though he is cute), but I seriously love burgers and shakes. Oh and boy do I mean that.

Mr. Flay manages to succinctly spell out how to make the absolute perfect burger such as what type of meat, how to form patties, exact grilling times and methods and on and on. He goes over it step-by-step and (thankfully) explains why you are supposed to do what he tells you to do.

He also has an incredible talent for creative toppings that are truly amazing. I will also grant that he names some of the common toppings with absolute flair, such as his "Cheyenne Burger" with barbecue sauce, bacon and onion rings. As a side note, the picture of that burger, which I am longingly looking at as I write, makes my mouth water and my tummy rumble. No. Really.

Another thing I love about this book is that he gives recipes for sauces (and even pickles). One thing I catch myself saying over and over and over again is, "It's all in the sauce." I say it because it's true. If you have an excellent Marsala sauce, you can serve it over just about anything, not just chicken; so it adds variety AND flavor. Yet if you serve a bad Marsala sauce, over juicy chicken, the whole thing is ruined. Well, I digress but you see the point. A great sauce will elevate the burger and add variety as well as flavor.

Suffice it to say, he teaches us everything we need to know. As mentioned above he even tells us how to make our own pickles plus he explains the various cheeses plus much more. You'll not find a greater burger cookbook that will give you just about every element that you will need. For those who prefer organic and preservative free type foods, then this is a seriously required book. Heck for anyone who likes burgers, it's still required.

The one thing this book is not, is getting it done quickly. If you're looking to whip up a burger in just a few minutes, look elsewhere. Most of his recipes require a lot of preparation time. A seriously worst-case scenario is one of his tuna burgers. There are no less than 27 ingredients (if I counted right). Before you scream and run away, let me stress that most of those you'll already have on hand, so it will NOT be expensive, it's just the measuring of each and every one of those items which makes it so time consuming.

Finally, and I really feel compelled to address this, I saw another reviewer's comments on how they wished he had done more with the burgers themselves and was unhappy about how plain the actual burgers were. The thing is, that is how ANY burger should be made, in my opinion (which means very little, actually). What makes a great burger isn't the spices you add to the meat, it's the smokey beefy flavor of the meat that makes itself grand. The toppings are like the icing on the cake. Just as in cake, if you have a moist yellow cake with an incredible chocolate icing it's going to be completely different than a moist yellow cake with a dry strawberry icing. Toppings make the burgers.

Anyway, I will never regret buying this book and I cannot recommend it enough.

Love those burgers, fries and shake 21 July 2009
By Missyplaymate3 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had the chance to visit Bobby's burger place. The burgers are so good. When I heard he was coming out with this book. I had to purchase a copy. The burgers are usually made with kosher salt and pepper. Mr. Flay likes his meat burgers simple because you want to taste the meat. It gives a lot of good tips about what kind of meat you should purchase for your beef burgers. There are also chicken and fish burgers too. What makes the burgers top notch are the sauces that Bobby puts together. My favorite burgers are the Argentinean, Buffalo and Cheyenne Burger. There is the second section which is for french fries, potoato chips and onion rings. I really like the sweet potato fries and the beer-battered onion rings. I would recommend you make this for friends. You dont want to eat this stuff all the time :-). The last chapter of course are the shakes. My favorite one is the vanilla bean milkshake. The second one is a double chocolate milkshake and that one is to die for. :-)

This is a must have for people who are looking to try something different.
