“Heart attacks are just God’s way of congratulating you for being so damn American.”
~Chester B. Arthur
America has not always been known as a culinary giant of the world, the concept of “gourmet” food being a laughably European notion for much of the 20th century. And while many foods that we take for granted, such as pizza, ice cream and paint thinner, get their roots from other, non-American nations, one food staple will always be synonymous with American consumption.
Of course, we are talking about…the Hamburger.
Oh dear God, that explains why food porn blogs exist…
