The inventor of the hamburger appears to have been Louis Lassen of New Haven, Connecticut, who in 1900 prepared and sold the first example of this dish from his lunch wagon.
Since then this patty of ground meat, pressed, grilled and placed inside a soft bun, accompanied with various vegetables, sauces and condiments, has come a long way, spreading globally mainly due to the success of the fast food chains.
Traditionally composed of beef, the dish is now available in endless variations: buffalo, turkey, chicken, kangaroo, reindeer, salmon and even vegetarian and accompanied by various combinations that are more or less creative or related to local traditions.
It is to this dish, today more than ever a symbol of "global" cuisine, that this volume is dedicated, with its original format that reproduces its shape, part of the 50 Easy Recipes series edited by Academia Barilla.
Written with Mario Grazia, chef and gastronomic manager at the Academia Barilla, it offers 50 different ways to make and appreciate a dish that is as simple as it is successful.
