Shiny and with an open concept, Lulu’s still has that new restaurant smell and is a welcome addition to the Allston ‘hood. The menu is vast with pub influenced bites, plates and sandwiches and a slight accent of gluttonous offerings to boot. Two burgers appear on the menu (three if you count a black bean one a burger; I don’t), one very normal, one very much a knife and fork sounding job. Of course I had to have both the Lulu’s Burger ($12) and the fittingly named Bad Ass Burger ($15). continue reading »
Yes, almost a year in the making, but my first cookbook (co-written with the incredible Sammy Monsour) will be on the shelves this May. American Burger Revival will be just that: an irreverent look at America’s most precious handheld pastime food item, with some modern twists and our completely unique and (hopefully) original outlook on a classic. It was an incredible journey, those of who have written a cookbook before know what I’m talking about. Each deliberation, creative brainstorming session and tweaks and re-tweaks in the kitchen made it all worthwhile and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in all of this. Sammy is a master in the kitchen and his ideas and passion made this book what it is. We got the book we always envisioned thanks to the incredible team at Union Park Press and we can’t wait to spread our burger love (take that however you want) into your home and kitchen in just a few months. Here are a couple of teaser pics I wanted to share. Thanks as always for all the support and love along the way, I couldn’t have done it without all of my dear readers throughout the years.
