"I can think of few other foods that are as universally loved as the burger - in fact it is a particular favorite in our house. But after reading Jeff Bramwell's excellent cookbook, our burger meals have taken on a whole new dimension! Not only does he provide outstanding recipes with an innovative twist on the humble hamburger, but his ability to pair them with the appropriate wines makes the experience even more delicious. With so many wonderful wines from around the world available these days, Jeff's book offers every wine enthusiast a unique way to taste - and eat - globally. If you're looking for a way to treat your favorite wine lover, I highly recommend picking up Jeff's book - the wine information is terrific and the burger ideas will knock your socks off!"
