These burger kits are becoming quite the thing during lockdown...
They are. We've already given the Patty & Bun kit a Test Drive, which was one of the first out of the door. But when we heard that Burger & Beyond had joined the party, we had to give that a go too.
What's special about the Burger & Beyond kit?
Apart from the fact that we really, REALLY liked their burgers when we tried out their Shoreditch restaurant? Well the kit they're sending out makes their gorgeous Bacon Butter burger and that was one burger that we hadn't got around to trying.
What do you get?
The box consists of four demi brioche buns, a pack of their signature dry-aged minced beef, eight slices of pancetta bacon, eight slices of American cheese along with burnt butter mayo and pickled onion. There's also a pretty detailed cooking guide.
Anything in particular we need to know about?
The burger mince comes in one piece so you'll need to divide it into four portions before smashing each ball down in the frying pan. What we thought particularly elevated these burgers was the tip on frying the burger buns in butter. More saturated fats? Yes please.
How did it turn out?
As you see, very well indeed. They recommend just letting the burger rest in the buns for a few minutes which results in a wonderful, juicy mess when you eat it. Actually doing this at home is almost better as there's no-one to judge you when you end up with burger juices all over you.
OK, you've made a convincing case. How much?
The kit is £25 which is enough to make four burgers, which is pretty good value when you consider that would cost you £46 in their restaurant (if, of course, it was open).
How do I order one?
Head to the shop section of their website. There's a delivery charge of £4 and the cut off for Saturday delivery in London is 11am on Friday. They deliver to most London postcodes as well as Braintree, Chelmsford and Colchester.
