Hamburger : a global history
No descriptions found.
QUICK & EASY COOKING. The hamburger is perhaps the most ubiquitous fast food in the Western world but how many of us know how and where the hamburger originated? Meat pattie sandwiches were first served by street vendors in American cities during the late nineteenth century. Within a few decades they had started appearing on the menus of diners, cafes and restaurants, with the first hamburger chain - White Castle - opening in 1921. The hamburger began to change the way Americans ate, turning people away from home-cooked meals towards fast food consumed outside the home. Academic interest in hamburgers emerged as 'McDonaldization' became a term frequently discussed in journals and books. What was initially an American invention became a global phenomena. Containing many fascinating illustrations, and packed with incident, anecdote, history and recipes, "Hamburger" will be an essential read for anyone who loves, or loathes, this ubiquitous and tasty dish.
