What's tastier than a burger? Well not much really. Once relegated to fast food chains and greasy food joints, meat patties have had a resurgence of late and gourmet burger restaurants are now popping up all over.
Along with becoming one of the food scene's trendiest, and tastiest, treats, the revamped burger has been adapted to keep it current. Patties inside doughnuts and burgers with peanut butter are just two of the new incarnations, but by far and away the most popular are sliders - the mini variety! Chef Gordon Ramsey is a fan, subscribing to the mantra that every burger needs a great sauce.
