PornBurger: Hot Buns and Juicy Beefcakes is a recipe book bordering on an X-rated culinary fantasy.
There aren't any nudes in this book per se, but just as the title describes, there's enough hot and steamy burger-on-burger action to get your blood pumping and palms sweating. Chef and self-described "burger pervert" Mathew Ramsey spoke to BuzzFeed about what it takes to create the perfect burger...
A burger is only as good as the ingredients you put in it. When done right, a good burger should leave you wanting both a cigarette and a confessional... toes curling, guttural moans, the works. A good stack is like a well oiled orgy, all components have a part to play. Because food involves all of the senses, I find it to be incredibly sensual... Especially, when a good ravishing results in some special sauce dripping down my chin.
