"The Best Hamburger He'd Ever Tasted"
Although I am not a meat-eater, I faithfully record the meals of the universes as relayed to us by Poul Anderson and, even more so, by SM Stirling.
Ralph Barnes, physicist, shanghaied to New Virginia in the hope that he would elucidate the Gate, refused to cooperate and called John Rolfe a fascist so Rolfe set Barnes up with a hamburger joint. After all, he cannot be allowed to return to FirstSide.
The best hamburger that Tom Christiansen has ever tasted:
meat lean, flavorful, juicy and lightly basted with a fiery sauce;
onions and tomatoes tasting of the earth;
homemade garlic mayonnaise;
bun warm and kaiser-style with caramelized onion in the crust;
a crunchy spear of pickle;
a basket of chunky fries done in olive oil;
home-brewed beer, well hopped with a nice sharp taste...
All I ask is a bean- or veg-burger instead of the meat, with a slice of cheese.
