Did you know … the word ‘hamburger’ originates from the town of Hamburg in Germany?
The long and short of it goes a little something like this;
Back in the 19th-century … after trading with their counterparts in the Baltic provinces of Russia … German sailors brought back the idea of raw, shredded beef … (known today, as beef tartare).
Eventually … a local, German chef decided he’d throw in a bit of a ‘twist’ … and he cooked that beef! And, whaddaya know … the ‘hamburger’ was born!
