Burgerac's most read stories of 2011

Burgerac began in the first week of January this year, the result of a new year's resolution to seek and destroy London's finest buger offerings. Almost a year – and over 146,700 page views later – I thought I'd cast an eye back over a year of burger detecting and pick out the top five most read stories...

Know Your Condiments Tea Towel

Since putting on the Burgermat Show earlier in the year, I've been talking to some of the artists involved about developing products, made with love here in the UK in limited numbers for discerning burger-lovers. Here's the first of those products: the Know Your Condiments tea towel brought to you by Burgerac and the super-talented Crispin Finn. Aren't they lovely?

Gift Couture's Cheeseburger wrapping papers

Unsurprisingly these wrapping papers, available to pre-order from fledgling wrapping paper company Gift Couture, are right up my street. Yes, as its very first project the company has devised a set of five burger-themed papers. Respect!

Le Club des 5 Cheeseburger au Cheddar (Paris)

€12,50 Served on a wooden board with a heap of perfectly crisp fries this burger is well worth sampling if you find yourself in the vicinity

I was in Paris for a few days so made a point of seeking out a burger or two. Simon over at Burger Anarchy used to live in the 17th arrondissement so was able to point me in the direction of a great spot just round the corner from my hotel at the foot of Montmartre, and that's where I began my Parisian adventures...
