From the Author

I wrote this book because I wanted to share my vast knowledge of burgers and fries from a quick-service perspective. I've worked in the food service industry since the summer of 1988, and I spent 3 years slaving away in the kitchen of one of the most popular and ever-expanding gourmet burger franchises in the country...
.
Let's see if you can guess which franchise that is, where I spent those years perfecting the Wonka-like process of crafting delicious burgers and fries that the people just kept coming back for...
.
I came to realize that most people could save a lot of money just by making these simple recipes in the comfort of their own home, and that I was just the person to share that knowledge with the world!
Enjoy!

I've never eaten at a "Five Guise" or similar sounding restaurant, but I absolutely love Boardwalk-style French fries. Unfortunately for me, the closest restaurant to indulge that passion is over three hours' drive away.

Now with the help of this minutely-detailed guide, I can make my own fries at home and have them come out just like the store-bought variety. My waistline will probably regret it though.

The author breaks from traditional recipe books and concentrates on the technique with step-by-step details on how to do things just right for just a couple of items to get the results that match the restaurant-bought food. I love the attitude and the chatty style of the author as well. He doesn't talk down to the aspiring chef and takes the time to explain the "why" of each step in a friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful manner.

Bonus recipes are included at the end for hot dogs and Cajun style burgers, but without the in-depth discussion of the featured recipes.

Recommended for all fast and not-so-fast food gourmets and gourmands and home cooks that want to expand both their repertoire and their waistlines.

I liked this book. Not a lot of complicated ingredients, directions, or cooking methods. Just good fresh ingredients and sensible cooking style. Most of the cookbooks I download I remove from my Kindle. To me this one is a keeper.

I downloaded The Five Guise Experience - Making Simple Burgers and Boardwalk Fries At Home! months ago when it was free and just got around to looking at it. At that time it had all the 5-star rave reviews, which I now consider suspect after reading the book.

I followed the author's explicit instructions that the entire book must be read. That I did, but I'm not going to follow the author's explicit instructions that POSITIVE reviews should be placed on Amazon and negative feedback should be sent to him privately. Customers deserve to know all opinions, good and bad.

If you had never set foot in a kitchen or seen a hamburger before, I suppose that there might be some tiny benefit to this book. Otherwise, forget it! The author's special 'recipe' calls for cooking unseasoned ground beef patties on a griddle -- how is that gourmet? His suggested toppings include mustard, ketchup, pickles, onions. Again, how is this gourmet? One of the bonus recipes is a Cajun burger. The big secret there is:
********Spoiler Alert***********
putting bottled Cajun seasoning on the meat. Duh!

The other bonus is a hot dog recipe. The secret is:
*******Spoiler Alert***********
-- cutting the dog in half. No other secrets, toppings, or gourmet serving suggestions.

This "book" might have made a couple of halfway decent blog articles for guys who have never cooked but want to buy a bunch of expensive equipment to cook their own burger and fries instead of going to a fast food restaurant. (Readers are conveniently directed to the author's blog where they can click through to Amazon using the author's affiliate code to buy their griddle, patty maker, and deep fryer.) For the rest of us, not worth the time spent reading it, even for free. Sorry. There are no great revelations within, certainly nothing remotely gourmet.

This is not just some recipe taken from the Internet or any cookbook. The descriptions are so detailed you can tell the author knows exactly how to cook the delicious gourmet burgers.
If you can't afford to dine out very often grab this book right now. You'll get 4 amazing recipes that you can easily prepare at home.

Highly recommended if you love to cook and you love burgers, fries and hotdogs!

I downloaded your ebook on fries and burgers. I am a little disturbed by your claim that allergens are not a concern if you use refined peanut oil. I would like you to read the following from the article you link to [...]

`According to the Food Allergy Anaphylaxis Network, "Studies show that most allergic individuals can safely eat peanut oil (not cold pressed, expelled, or extruded peanut oil - sometimes represented as gourmet oils)." They recommend that allergic individuals consult a physician regarding whether or not to avoid peanut oil.'

Please note the word MOST is used. That does not mean that all people allergic to peanuts will not react to things cooked in peanut oil. I am one of those people who has the joy of trying to explain to people why I cannot eat out due to my super sensitive peanut allergy. I find misleading information like this to be MOST frustrating as it leads people to think I am making up how serious this allergy is for me. Even the study only claims overwhelming majority, not all!

For someone who haven't grilled their own burger before this book was a quick read on how it's done and done properly. I follow this book word to word and over this past weekend I made some great tasting burgers! Even my wife told me it was good (she hardly ever says that about anything I cook).

Pick up this book if you want to grill some great burgers over the weekend!

If you like burgers this book is definitely for you. Easy to read and entertaining, this book contains the secrets to cook the perfect burger and homemade fries like the pros do, step by step. Gourmet burgers in the comfort of your own home at an affordable price.
The author knows the business and how to adapt the cooking techniques and tools to your home kitchen.

I couldn't help my stomach from growling while reading the book.

It includes two bonus recipes that you'll absolutely love. This book delivers much more value than the $0.99 it costs.
