CULINARY:  National Hamburger Month
By Whitney Long (photo: www.southernfood.about.com)

“Anybody who doesn’t think that the best hamburger place in the world is in his home town is a sissy.” Calvin Trillin

Beaches and bathing suits, swimming pools and parades, kites and American flags flying high, cook-outs and celebrations are all signs that it’s Memorial Day and the unofficial kick-off of summer! It’s no coincidence that May is also National Hamburger Month (as well as National Barbeque Month – see last week’s issue).  With the average American consuming three burgers per week, it’s the perfect time to pay homage to the hamburger, an iconic all-American delight. To celebrate and give the burger it’s due, we have gathered a “best of” round-up for our Southern C readers:
