    More excellent work, I think this would be my favourite.

    Is there a lens effect being used? The photos seem to have a sepia look to them.
    no filter. I shoot in a cardboard box with white paper backing. Im shooting in he kitchen being lit by a low watt energy light bulb that i keep meaning to change but never get around to it so basically the brown of the cardboard coupled with the yellow light is really throwing out the white balance on my camera so thats slight brown tint :)

    bob is a master burger maker, maybe the best that the world has ever seen, and you lot are complaining about image quality! Come on you lot.

    Respect the man and respect his art. Nay. His craft.

    That is the reason we are complaining, so we can worship his craft in finer, more vibrant detail!

    Respect is high my non happy ending friend.

    Maybe a bit longer exposure? I don't care really - I recognise vein-busting goodness when I see it. The pictures look like they're 70's Wimpy style anyway. Which is good!

    Number 14... Hang on to your arteries... it's the Bohemian!



    A juicy beef patty with wilted spinach, roast turkey, crispy fried prosciutto, gruyere cheese and pesto mayonnaise in between lightly toasted oat bread. original

    An interesting one and very tasty burger party in my mouth. I like these kind of burgers where you have non-standard burger elements, it feels like an adventure. Of course, the dirty cheese/meat ones will always by my artery hardening faves!

    The first hit you get when you open real wide and chomp down is the pesto mayonnaise which gives way to the rich burger meant - then spinach and the turkey mingle with the beef and act as a foil for the rich beef. I wasn't sure about the spinach and actually even less sure about the turkey and was surprised with the role it played. Lastly you have the salty prosciutto and then the cheese bringing you back ready for the next bite.

    Everything works and you can taste each element which I was wondering if I would. The only negative for me was the prosciutto was maybe a bit on the salty side so if I was to make this again I would put in a bit less. Over all another really great burger! Very interesting with some crazy ideas that all really work together.

    Oh and you will notice the photo is now brighter :-D

    Next week... Move over Mr Springsteen coz it's THE BOSS

    Wowser! Great photo as well looks fantastic.
  • Deleted user 25 November 2012 23:32:46
    Ohhhh just look at that! It's glistening like the sumptuous, basted beauty that it is.

    I need to bookmark this thread or something so that it comes up whenever a Tesco shop is due. Maybe a burgery Christmas dinner instead of the usual fare? Mmmmm.

    I think Bob has to re-make all the past burgers so he can put his new photography skills to work on them.

    /has "next week" in the wobbly_bob heart attack sweepstakes.

    This thread needs a "Special Edition"
    I'm thinking a tumblr with all Wobbly_Bosses (yes, he's a boss) Post alongside recipie and image of the "original".

    Then a self published cofeetable book based on that tumble with selected comments from this thread. Maybe some behind the scenes shots of wobbly_Bobs kitchen and where he buys his cheese.

    Oohhh, some interviews with relatives AND the guy selling the cheese.

    Top job wobbly_Bob. Easily TotY for me.

    NUMBER 15!!!!!! I'm HALFWAY THERE!!! I only have to not drop dead for another 15 burgers!!!

    It;s THE BOSS!!!



    A juicy quarter pound beef patty with olive tapenade, rocket, basil, tomatoes, red onions, prosciutto ham, and sliced grana padano cheese in a rosemary ciabatta bun.

    NOTES: The original calls for asiago cheese which I find out is very similar to Parmesan/grana padano cheeses so this is what I used. I couldn;t find a rosemary ciabatta so I crushed some dried rosemary into the bread and very lightly toasted it. I could only find olive tapenade with other bits and bobs in it and so used one with sundried tomato in it - hence the ready colour in the shot.

    I actually made this Sunday but later came down with the most dreaded and serious of illnesses... the man flu! So I have been out of action for a few days feeling sorry for myself :-)

    On to the goodness! This one was pretty expensive to make :-O but as always the taste is worth it. A little dry for my tastes. I always think a good burger really has to have some sort of sauce or if not sauce then it needs a good helping of rich melting cheese. This one has no sauce and also a non-melting cheese so I found it a bit too dry. Everything works well in it although the olive tapenade doesn't add much to it. I think it's nice in flavour but isn't playing any real part in the burger symphony. A good burger but not amazing. I was pleased though that this is probably closest looking to the original!

    On Sunday I will be making number 16 - The Camelot It will probably be a couple of weeks till the next one after that since there is that Christmas thing so I will be having a turkey instead of a burger!

    I don't think i've even tasted a beef burger half as good as any that you've made Bob.
