      Very good, not special.

  • Fleur burger with truffles

    • Baxter850 on July 05, 2022

      Really nice burger. Rich and juicy. Lost a bit of the truffle. Would definitely eat again but don’t know whether I would personally put the work (or money) into making it again. Fun once.

In each recipe, Keller explains exactly how to create and combine garnishes and condiments--and build an unforgettable burger. Complete with recipes for spectacular fries and sides as well as detailed guidance on selecting meat, forming patties, and cooking juicy burgers, Build Your Own Burger is the ultimate cookbook for everyone who loves a great burger.
