Indulge your naughtiest food fantasies and satisfy your gluttony and lust with this succulent cook-and-look book, from a self-described “burger pervert” and creator of the notorious PornBurger blog.

PornBurger is Washington, DC, chef, food stylist, and creative producer Mathew Ramsey’s orgasmic experiment: ingredient-driven, flavor-intense, sensually divine excess that caters to the food fetishist in all of us. Shamelessly health-unconscious and ready to entertain (or offend), Ramsey’s recipes deliver the ultimate in debauched burger stackography—handcrafted buns, patties, toppings, and sides, even some boozy beverages—expertly designed and lusciously photographed in a set of bombshell burger pinups.

But don’t be fooled by raunchy descriptions and Ramsey’s signature burger puns, like the Bill U Murray Me?, Spamela Anderson, and the Willem DaFoe–nut. This burger freak is a culinary-school-educated chef devoted to the dark arts of hamburgery. Ramsey shows you how to master as many essential cooking techniques as he offers graphically delicious images to ogle. Whet your appetite with delectable concoctions like the Horn Dog: clover honey, whole kernel corn jalapeño batter, slow-roasted pork belly, pickled hot dog, two smash-cooked PornBurger beef patties; the James Francophile: quick pickled beets, truffled demi-glace, Gruyère de Comté, one PornBurger beef patty, bone marrow onion jam, potato-chip-crusted fois gras gougère; and I Woke Up Like This: sriracha mustard, arugula, smoked bacon, American cheese, fried chicken thigh, quick-pickled hamburger dills, White Castle cheeseburger waffle.

Combining tantalizing meat blends, grinds, and cooking methods, a tempting range of vegetarian and pescatarian delights, and lip-smacking custom ketchups and pickles, PornBurger offers the ultimate dining experience and entices you to create your own culi-naughty adventure. Every element of every burger is open to reinterpretation—with PornBurger, get weird, get wild, and leave no burger fantasy unimagined . . . or uneaten.
