History of burgers

Simplicity is beautiful – just look at a hamburger. The hamburger gets its name from the German town of Hamburg. Yet, often hamburgers are so strongly associated with America that people still argue over their true origin. However, according to history books, Germans introduced hamburgers to the States at the end of the 19th century. But the Americans do deserve some of the glory, as they were the ones to first put the patty inside a bun. Picture this: a meat patty and two halves of a bun. There is your stereotypical hamburger. But as with many other things, the roots of the idea for a hamburger reach as far as Ancient Rome. In Rome, the poor classes used to eat meat wrapped in bread. It took quite a while for this ancient dish to find its way to Finland, as it was not until the 1970s that the first hamburger restaurants were opened in Helsinki. But better late than never, because without American-style eateries, restaurants would not be as popular in Finland as they are now. Some might say that we have strayed too far from the basic concept of a hamburger – the traditional meat can be replaced by chicken or even a vegetable patty. The notion that hamburgers are unhealthy has been partly disproved. They are still widely considered to be fast food, but healthier and more versatile versions of hamburgers are also available. In addition, this heyday of self-determination that we are living in allows us to choose from a near infinite selection of fillings: lettuce, tomato, bacon, onion, different types of cheese, chutney and sauce, prawns, cucumber – you name it. Often, you can also turn a hamburger into a meal by adding chips or sweet potato wedges, for example. And those who feel they want to watch more carefully what they eat can always choose a side salad. Burger chains guarantee that their products have a standard taste and quality. In addition, the choice of hamburger restaurant these days also depends on factors such as the freshness of the ingredients, the number of calories in a burger, whether the meat is organic or locally sourced, and whether the bun is multigrain. Therefore, a wide range of creations, variations of the traditional bun-patty-bun model, can be called hamburgers.
