When it comes to good food and food in general, everything Italian is of absolute appeal. No exception is made for the American food for excellence, the hamburger: very fashionable until it became part of the culinary daily life of all of us, this comfort food reaches gourmet levels and very high quality when it meets the special "Italian touch", even to become healthy comfort food.

Just like Italian Burger, a reality that in the beautiful Umbria region has been perfecting for years genuinely and intrinsically Italian burgers. And what may seem like an oxymoron, or an ambition, an Italian hamburger, actually reveals a special authenticity. Because preparing an (ham)burger in the manner of an Italian Burger means paying attention to a process that starts with the purchase of the ingredients and goes as far as pairing it with the right wine or beer. A sandwich that represents a journey, but first of all it represents the territory, the farmers and the small local companies.

The book collects the tips and tricks of the trade to make a sandwich at home - even vegetarian - as good as the one tasted at the restaurant. The sandwich is explained in detail in every aspect: starting from the equipment that can not miss in the kitchen, we continue with the choice of meat (it is always preferable to start with a tartare ...) and other ingredients (strictly seasonal and fresh daily, preferably local and a bit daring if you like). And then here is the zoom on the baking technique, on the best type of bread (the perfect bun...) and even on the final assembly. In addition to the sandwich, there are also tips for homemade sauces and pestos, chips and cheesecake. And a small presentation of some of the most special Italian ingredients such as Tropea's onion, Norcia's bacon with Gubbio's black truffle, Friuli region' smoked Ricotta, Puglia region' Stracciatella and so on...

Not another simple book on hamburgers, then, but a source of inspiration to create with professional technique your own sandwich of dreams, thanks also to the construction of a "custom supply chain" where you can choose raw materials and experiment them with unique combinations.
