    Shake Shack BBQ Pulled Pork Burger Being Tested in New York

    It may very well be the case that you’ll soon be able to get a fast food facsimile of the American classic pulled pork sandwich at your local Shake Shack. That’s because at almost every one of the chain’s locations in New York City, the Shake Shack BBQ Pulled Pork Burger is currently being tested out. The […]

  • Shake Shack Eel Burger by Chef Fergus Henderson

    Shake Shack Eel Burger by Chef Fergus Henderson

    Shake Shack has a history of collaborating with high profile chefs despite its position as a sometimes overhyped (yeah, I said it!) fast food chain. The latest example is the Shake Shack Eel Burger, created by famed British chef Fergus Henderson. The Shake Shack Eel Burger substitutes smoked eel for the usual beef patty, and […]

  • ‘Burger Lab: The Art and Science of the Perfect Burger’

    ‘Burger Lab: The Art and Science of the Perfect Burger’

    These virtual pages are full of tributes to the art of the cheeseburger. But that’s only one half of the purview advocated by a new book from New Zealand chef Daniel Wilson, entitled Burger Lab: The Art and Science of the Perfect Burger. Burger Lab covers the basics of the world’s greatest culinary innovation, but […]

  • Avocado Burger Buns: Tomorrow’s Food Trend

    Avocado Burger Buns: Tomorrow’s Food Trend

    Now that America has finally gotten used to the idea of avocado on cheeseburgers, the time has come to foist the next avocado innovation on the burger-eaters of the world. And that duty has been taken up by food site FoodDeco‘s Colette Dike, with their introduction of avocado burger buns. Dike’s avocado burger buns sandwich a […]

  • Impossible Burger: A Bleeding Vegetarian Artificial Beef Burger

    Impossible Burger: A Bleeding Vegetarian Artificial Beef Burger

    Impossible Foods is a company that specializes in vegetarian, lab-created foodstuffs that taste impossibly similar to the real carnivorous meats they seek to imitate – think of them as the John Carpenter’s The Thing of the vegetarian food industry. And their latest masterpiece, dubbed the Impossible Burger, is set to make its debut at New […]

  • Angriest Whopper: Burger King Unveils Red-Bunned Monster

    Angriest Whopper: Burger King Unveils Red-Bunned Monster

    Burger King‘s ongoing “Angry” line of sandwiches reaches what is hopefully its ultimate step before someone gets seriously injured. It’s called the Angriest Whopper, a cheeseburger that’s so angry that its buns are red (perhaps you know the feeling). The Angriest Whopper’s bun doesn’t get its red color just from food dye like some other […]

  • A.1. Halloween Whopper: Black-Bunned Burger Coming to America

    A.1. Halloween Whopper: Black-Bunned Burger Coming to America

    Much like Godzilla before it, Burger King‘s inexplicable black buns are coming to the United States after having laid waste to Japan. It’s the A.1. Halloween Whopper, a (hopefully) limited-time stateside offering from Burger King. If you like A.1. Steak Sauce (actually, it’s just A.1. Sauce now, but I’m a classicist at heart), the A.1. […]

    Introducing the Deep Fried Big Mac by ‘Peep My Eats’ (Video)

    If you thought a McDonald’s Big Mac couldn’t get any unhealthier/more delicious, you obviously haven’t been exposed to the latest culinary innovation from Peep My Eats. It’s the deep fried Big Mac, the two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun you know and love with a thick coating […]

  • Burger King Japan Launches Red “Aka” Burgers (Pics)

    Burger King Japan Launches Red “Aka” Burgers (Pics)

    You might have seen those crazy looking black cheeseburgers from Burger King Japan a while back, with buns and cheese turned black by some kind of forbidden kitchen chemistry. Now, the restaurant is rolling out something almost as disturbing – the “Aka” burger, which translates in English as “Red.” As you might expect from a […]

  • ‘An Animated History of the Hamburger’ (Video)

    ‘An Animated History of the Hamburger’ (Video)

    A hamburger is not generally thought of as one of those things that you need to have any historical context to enjoy or appreciate. In fact, I suspect that if you brought a freshly made hamburger to some native tribe out in the middle of the jungle and presented it to the chieftain, he or […]
