Coming soon: a 'Bob's Burgers' cookbook
Bob’s Burgers fans can soon make Bob Blecher’s “Burger of the Day” in their own home thanks to a new cookbook in the works inspired by “The Bob’s Burgers Experiment.”
According to NPR‘s the Salt, Cole Bowden has spent the last two years creating burgers featured on Bob’s chalkboard with clever titles like “Blue is the Warmest Cheese Burger,” “The Tunami,” and “Blondes Have More Fun-Gus Burger.” The gourmet burgers are put together with a slew of inventive ingredients that, as Bowden admitted to the Salt, might not always make for the best burger. (Gumbo in a burger? Maybe not.)
The blog had a healthy following—including the show’s creator, Loren Bouchard, who will play a special role in the creation of the cookbook.
“I loved (the blog) ever since I heard of it, which was at its inception several years ago,” Bouchard told The Salt. “It was maybe the best example of how doing a show in the age of the Internet can be such a satisfying experience.” The book, which is still in its early stages, will be published by Rizzoli and feature Bowden’s recipes and illustrations provided by Bouchard.
