Indulge your naughtiest food fantasies and satisfy your gluttony and lust with this succulent cook-and-look book, from a self-described “burger pervert” and creator of the notorious PornBurger blog.
PornBurger is Washington, DC, chef, food stylist, and creative producer Mathew Ramsey’s orgasmic experiment: ingredient-driven, flavor-intense, sensually divine excess that caters to the food fetishist in all of us. Shamelessly health-unconscious and ready to entertain (or offend), Ramsey’s recipes deliver the ultimate in debauched burger stackography—handcrafted buns, patties, toppings, and sides, even some boozy beverages—expertly designed and lusciously photographed in a set of bombshell burger pinups.
But don’t be fooled by raunchy descriptions and Ramsey’s signature burger puns, like the Bill U Murray Me?, Spamela Anderson, and the Willem DaFoe–nut. This burger freak is a culinary-school-educated chef devoted to the dark arts of hamburgery. Ramsey shows you how to master as many essential cooking techniques as he offers graphically delicious images to ogle. Whet your appetite with delectable concoctions like the Horn Dog: clover honey, whole kernel corn jalapeño batter, slow-roasted pork belly, pickled hot dog, two smash-cooked PornBurger beef patties; the James Francophile: quick pickled beets, truffled demi-glace, Gruyère de Comté, one PornBurger beef patty, bone marrow onion jam, potato-chip-crusted fois gras gougère; and I Woke Up Like This: sriracha mustard, arugula, smoked bacon, American cheese, fried chicken thigh, quick-pickled hamburger dills, White Castle cheeseburger waffle.
Combining tantalizing meat blends, grinds, and cooking methods, a tempting range of vegetarian and pescatarian delights, and lip-smacking custom ketchups and pickles, PornBurger offers the ultimate dining experience and entices you to create your own culi-naughty adventure. Every element of every burger is open to reinterpretation—with PornBurger, get weird, get wild, and leave no burger fantasy unimagined . . . or uneaten.

Some awesome burgers in the book, though the only downside is there are some components of the burgers that have no instructions on how to make it, but other then that this book is incredible.
Stunning Photography, Fantastic Recipes!

"Your body is not a temple, it's an amusement park. Enjoy the ride." - Anthony Bourdain
If I hadn't been wooed to buy this book by a goodreads friend's glowing review ([...]...), I wouldn't have been dreaming of holding this book in my hands, but I ordered it, and it arrived even more glorious in person. It arrived just in time for me to share it with everyone on Sunday, but only after I had taken a picture of the "Cheeseburger Pop Tart" and sent it to my Junk Food loving son. He promptly replied with "Dear God" and questioned if that was breakfast.
I laughed. I drooled (although not so much over Cheeseburger Pop Tarts). I dreamed.
The names alone are reason enough to be intrigued by this book, which really is a cookbook with amazing recipes. You probably won't want to prepare these for every day breakfast, lunch and dinner - I take that back, you might / probably will *want* to, but I suspect these are not all "low cal" recipes.
These are all worthy of note, these two are the ones I'm choosing for this review: The "Wake 'n Bacon" which features a maple-bacon wrapped burger, slices of melted cheddar between two apple fritter doughnuts and drizzled with a caffeinated maple=espresso syrup, and the "Mac Daddy Burger, featuring a lobster burger with bacon with a Mac and Cheese Bun. Yes, there is a recipe and instructions for making a bun for your burger out of macaroni and cheese.
There's more. Pork Burgers. Lamb Burgers. Venison Burgers. Lobster burgers.
Condiments. Two mustard based recipes and four ketchup-based recipes.
Grilled Pineapple Butter.
Bacon Peanut Butter.
Maybe you think you don't need this, maybe you've been happy with your fried chicken or your sausage gravy. Maybe just the section on cuts of meat, preparations, etc. will be what interests you.
And then there are the photographs. Really, people take pictures of food they've ordered, made, etc., and rarely does it look appealing. The photographs are perfect. Food photography is an art in itself, and Mathew Ramsey gets it oh-so right.

The absolute best cook book
Get past the title to some great food !!

Aside from the title of this book, this is a great addition to a library of recipes. This was purchased as a gift for a relative. When one in my family saw my purchase, they were taken aback from the title. Shortly thereafter, they were won over after I produced a meal from one of the recipes!!! Great recipes, great read, great gift!!!

Beautiful photography, intriguing burger combos/constructs. Bought this as a father's day gift for our son-in-law, a CIA trained chef, who owns (along with his wife/our daughter, who manages) the award-winning 'urban chic' Street Burger restaurant on Kauai in Hawaii. FB: Street Burger Kauai [...]

A customer at the restaurant I work at showed me this book and I fell in love with it. Each recipe has at least one unusual ingredient, but they tell you how to make them rather than some cookbooks that tell you to use some obscure ingredient and you're like, where do I get that?!?
