The new trend of the gourmet burger
Cast aside the tasteless fast-food hamburger, for too long served up in a cardboard box with limp, bland fries. Seeing as now, after having being adopted by famous chefs, the burger has become the object of a thousand and one culinary inventions. Over the last decade the burger has won over even the most demanding of palates and has appeared on the most prestigious dining tables in infinite variations of style and inspiration.
When famous chefs lead the way
The gourmet burger, rising icon on star-rated menus! The imagination of the top chefs knows no bounds. How can you not be tempted by these concoctions that blend tradition and new trends? A touch of the sea with Guy Martin's sweet and sour lobster and white peach burger. You can also have a luxury veggie burger, in the vein of Alain Passard's purple and yellow plates. Elsewhere, the burger is imbued with the aromas of Asia or Latin America.
Gourmet burger: balance and selection of ingredients
Several conditions need to be met to turn a common-or-garden burger into an exceptional dish. Firstly, the burger bun needs to be crusty and perfectly toasted. Next, the chosen ingredients must be top quality: beef, poultry or even fish… Finally, a vital side dish—crispy golden fries, a creamy but light sauce, a mix of crisp salad or a choice of marinated vegetables. The hamburger has reached the height of refinement!
