Hello, veggie burger enthusiast! Welcome! This blog is an ancillary project to a cookbook I’m writing called Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, set for release in June 2010, published by The Experiment. I’m now in the thick of writing it, testing, testing, testing (my lord, do I ever have a seasoned cast-iron skillet), preoccupying myself with the nuances of certain beans and grains, and vegan binders, and liquid smoke, and ketchup. On this site, in addition to chronicling the madness and updating you on my reel of cooking music (can’t recommend Taylor Dayne’s Can’t Fight Fate enough), I intend to post both some of the recipes I am in love with as well as some of the ones that are giving me grief, with the hope that I might find here a soundboard or two. If you try out any of my recipes, please—please!—let me know what you think.
