Remember when I used to write a new burger review as often as once a week? Me neither. It wasn’t necessary a conscious choice, and quite frankly, I wasn’t sure how eager I was to get back into it after the release of American Burger Revival. I felt even more connected to the local burger world but in some ways felt it was as good a time as any to take a break, catch my breath, and well, start eating a little better along the way. Ultimately I knew I had to get back into it all. We’ve really been pushing and growing our personal chef business so that has been the focus from a professional stand point, and even though burgers are/were part of my identity, it wasn’t the only game in town, if you will. I’ve eaten a few burgers here and there, but never got around to writing a review for various reasons. Maybe I’ll revisit those lost burgers at some point (Puritan = great, Grill 23 = not that great) but for now, it’s onto new burgers and new reviews as often as I can.

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.
