RePost: A Call to Farms | Hemingway’s Hamburger – the Paris Review

Writing and food? That’s always something I can get into. This article’s recipe at the end intrigues me, but I also love the detailed life that the article spins of how particular Hemingway was about what he ate. She goes the full journey in order to recreate this piece of Americana – despite him living in Cuba during the span of this particular article’s contents.



“The more mundane, like his instructions to the household staff, including how to prepare his hamburgers: ground beef, onions, garlic, India relish, and capers, cooked so the edges were crispy but the center red and juicy.” Hemingway’s idea of a perfect hamburger? I had to try it.
