With Fried Chicken and Apple Pie, John T. Edge launched a series of short books that celebrate American culture through the lore of our favorite foods. Now, with Hamburgers & Fries, Edge continues his quest to discover the very essence of America through the dishes we love and cherish.
Across the nation, from backyard barbecues to Big Macs, Edge follows the evolution of the burger from frugal repast to deluxe treat, but always with a celebration of American brawn and freedom. He revisits Depression-era days, when most hamburgers were extended with bread crumbs, and goes on to trace the arc of the American experience that leads us to the haute burgers of today, with foie gras at their centers and selling for $50 apiece. Best of all, the acclaimed food writer gives us fifteen recipes for the best burger we've ever sunk our teeth into.

We like using ground sirloin for hamburgers because it is lower in fat than chuck, and also because of its steakier taste. However, if you prefer a more classic-tasting burger, use a blend of the two. A quick guide for how to tell your burger is done: insert a thermometer sideways into the center of the burger; when it reads 145 degrees F it's medium rare, 160 degrees F it's medium, and 170 degrees F it's well done.
