All About the Burger
Sef Gonzalez
(USA: Mango, @MangoPublishing, 2019)

Do you know what the first burger chain was? That Taco Bell was originally known as Bell Burger – and was founded in the same city as McDonald’s? Have you heard of the 1980s Burger Wars? All About the Burger covers all of these topics and more! This book will take you on an informational magic carpet ride. You’ll learn about restaurants, cooking styles, and different eras that have made the burger the juggernaut that it is. From White Castle to Shake Shack, from simple sandwich to speciality burger, don’t miss out on what is sure to be one of the most entertaining looks at history ever written.
