I'm watching Masterchef Australia and Heston Blumenthal is setting the 'elimination' dish. The 4 chefs are competing against each other to recreate Heston's dish. The chefs have to recreate the dish from only looking/eating it. Hestons chosen dish? A FUCKIN HAMBURGER. I love hamburgers. Hamburgers + Heston = blisss.
Heston's giving them tips - they have to make the cheese, the sauce, patty & bun from scratch. The chips are cooked 3 times & the milkshake is fizzy. Weeeee. He told them to let their imagination go wild and remember the UMAMI principles!
Whenever I travel, I love to try the local burgers. Asian countries kick ASS for burgers. Japan & Singapore specifically. No London pub burgers are equal (mmmm). Grill'd burgers in Australia are delicious, with their secret herb sauce....Anyhoo, ode to burger:
|Bompas & Parr (aka the jelly mongers) hamburger made with a freaken krispy kreme original glaze doughnut|
|In & Out burger|
|Japanese FRESHNESS burger|
|The Hand Burger in Singapore.|
|The Hand Burger in Singapore. The flavors were amazing. This burger is actually miniature.|
|Japanese MOS burger. They're tiny and delicious. I had way too many.|
|This kind of looks gross, but I'd still eat it. Kobe beer, truffles and foie gras|
