The humble hamburger’s origin addressed the changing needs of an industrialized society. In the late 19th century, the workers of America needed a meal that was filling, portable and, of course, delicious. Sandwiching ground beef and vegetables between two pieces of bread started a culinary revolution and the burger became synonymous with the United States.
Today’s burgers have evolved from their simple beginnings. Limited only by the cook’s imagination, burgers have gone beyond ground beef and are often topped with exotic ingredients. And we want to see how far outside the bun you can take a burger!
