Praise For Great American Burger Book: How to Make Authentic Regional Hamburgers at Home

For true burger obsessives, there is no other cookbook.



“What a way to travel through America! George Motz takes us one burger at a time. I'll be locked on the Green Chile Cheeseburger page for my lesson from New Mexico."


"In the land of the hamburger, George Motz is king, an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate king who brings us not only the meat but heart and soul.”


“This book does everything a great cookbook should: it tells the story of a food, places it regionally, and provides techniques, recipes, and photography to help you re-create in your kitchen what the author has created in your imagination. Motz travels the country to discover an astonishing variety of burgers (poached?! who’d have thought?) and gives us a proud tribute to one of the most lovingly embraced foods in America.”
