Hamburger Dreams

How Classic Crime Solving Techniques Helped Crack the Case of America’s Greatest Culinary Mystery

Book summary (short version):

Have you ever paused to consider this question?

How do you solve a cold case that’s so close to you it’s sizzling on your backyard barbecue? Literally. Many have tried to solve the question “Who sold the first hamburger?” Some promote their own backyard answer, relying more on faith than on hard evidence. Hamburger Dreams, a new book by Christopher Carosa, uses classic crime solving techniques to crack the case of America’s greatest culinary mystery. Reviewers call Carosa “a born narrator” who, with “the brilliance of a culinary gumshoe and the diligence of a conscientious journalist,” uses “meaty research and tantalizing story-telling” to “separate fact from fiction.”
