A Review for the Daring Kitchen

A month ago Ian and I were asked to write a review for a very summer-ie cookbook from Bobby Flay called Burgers, Fries, and Shakes. We were so excited and had a great time cooking and eating our way though the book.

Please click here to read the review and see all the beautiful pictures that Ian took. Also check out the Daring Kitchen website while you're at it!

Very cool that you were asked to do this! I just read the review, well done! When I first saw this book advertised, I thought "An entire book based on burgers, nah, that's way too specific", but I've been hearing and reading really good things about it... So I'm kind of on the fence about it. The recipes you sampled look mouth-watering, though!

I just have one question: is the book only for people who own flaming barbecues, or are there alternative grilling/cooking methods?

Valerie, actually I found that the book was more geared towards people that don't have a BBQ and there was only a little blurb at the beginning about how to BBQ the burgers... so yes, this book is made for the pan. Weird eh!

Thanks for the kind words, it was a lot of fun!

Just read the review too! Very well done and love the photos too Ian! :) Like Valerie said my first thought was also... why a whole book on burgers but...hmm, I do love burgers so maybe this is a book I should actually get!
