The debut cookbook from NYC’s viral sensation Black Tap delivers unique recipes for innovative burgers and sensational, over-the-top milkshakes.
Black Tap is no ordinary burgers-and-fries restaurant—after opening in NYC’s Soho in March 2015, their bold, gourmet-flavored burgers and sky-high milkshakes adorned with donuts, sparklers, and oversized cookies have created amassive cult following on social media and the streets of New York, with people waiting in line for hours just to score a seat at the restaurant’s lunch counter. Though Black Tap is known for its assertive flavors and outrageous shakes, at the heart of the brand is the notion of an old-school luncheonette burger deluxe: an expertly prepared burger with all the trimmings, a side of fries, and a milkshake to cap off the meal. In his debut cookbook, Black Tap chef-owner Joe Isidori delivers 40 recipes for the restaurant’s signature burgers, tasty condiments and toppings, and gravity-defying milkshakes. With Craft Burgers and Crazy Shakes, readers will be able to prepare and enjoy all of Black Tap’s classic and innovative creations, from their Old Fashioned Burger to the Sour Power Milkshake, in the comfort of their own kitchens, no standing in line required.
