The Burger

A good hamburger is to sandwiches what Muhammad Ali is to boxing: fighters have come and gone – some good, some fantastic. There have been others who were more technically correct, but Ali has always stood alone. The burger is such a sandwich. Beware of cheap imitations, of mass produced shite that tastes like warm cardboard, of overpowering BBQ bastings that leave your taste buds raped and pillaged, of dubious meat that gives you the impression that you have eaten mammal but you cannot be certain of its origin. A good burger, like all good simple food, when prepared with love and attention, has few equals.

Beverage notes

A good Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz would be an ideal accompaniment but there can be no doubt that the perfect marriage would be an ice-cold beer.Beverage notes:</strong></p>
