Why is it so difficult to find good burgers? And by good we don’t mean the type which is dry or dunked in greasy oil with a patty which tastes like it’s made from hay. It’s simple, a great burger is a like a painting- it needs the right proportion of ingredients with a perfect balance of taste, texture and flavour.
