One of the things I miss most from my travels in the USA is the gourmet burger. And they are quite difficult to knock up at home. Here in mainland Europe, it’s impossible to find good burger buns. The ones sold in the shops here are weird, dry, flaky things that fall to pieces the moment you try to place anything on them. If you make a burger using them, most of the bun is still on the plate at the end.
So, I’ve been thinking for a while of developing a mash-up recipe. Taking the concept of a gourmet burger, but making it using all the ingredients and flavours of Tuscany. And so, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you … Tuscan Burger #1.
