You won't find these at McDonald's! Rare beef with fondant icing, the giant Crabzilla and oysters on rye with dill spray... the world's most bizarre burgers revealed
- Parisian artists Thomas Weil and Quentin Weisbuch created 60 different unique burger recipes
- Bored with eating sandwiches, the pair experimented with various fillings for their lunchtime meal
- The duo take photos of their highly-stylised food and post them on their website Fat & Furious Burger
The crazy creations are the brainchild of artists Thomas Weil and Quentin Weisbuch, who were so bored of ubiquitous lunchtime sandwiches that they took matters into their own hands.
The duo soon established a ritual where they conducted weekly experiments on new ways of cooking burgers during their very short lunch break with the ultimate aim being to design an edible masterpiece of ‘everything that tastes good between two buns.’
Their wondrous creations, which feature everything from a gold-leaf covered burger and rolls stuffed with raw oysters, to 'burger' composed of rice and sushi, are featured on the duo's website Fat & Furious Burger.
Thomas and Quentin – who founded the graphic design and art studio Furious – used the recipes to launch their Fat and Furious Burger cookbook late last year, with 60 recipes for ‘kamikaze livers and intrepid stomachs.’
The blurb on their website reads: ‘As we were so bored of random food at lunch, we started cooking together. It soon became kind of a ritual: improvising and experimenting new ways of cooking a burger in very short lunch break.
‘It’s about an hour and a half to find an idea, run to a supermarket to get everything, cook, shoot and eat.
‘We didn’t expect this project to go viral: Back in 2012, we decided to launch our blog to show our crazy pics to our friend… never expecting it would be such a buzz!’
The pair go on to explain that their project was born from the collision of two strong appetites.
And while the burgers are not on any restaurant menu, the colleagues often work with chefs to come up with new creations.
The added: ‘We cook them [the burgers] for our daily meals, so it’s all about one shot, but we often collaborate with restaurants to create special burgers people can actually taste.’
The Paris-based pair say it costs anything from 5 to 50 Euros to make their burgers.
Inspired by daily life, they also get burger ideas from newspaper headlines.
When the twosome first started on their project they were shooting on their iPhones.
They have since graduated to their own studio with a proper kitchen and professional camera equipment.
Understandably, with so many strange ingredients, the burgers are '‘sometimes a great surprise and sometimes kind of a fail.'
One of the pair's favourite burgers is the Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Burger that they created in collaboration with a restaurant in Geneva called Le Calamar.
They said: 'We were very excited to work on a global Burger event that included the creation of a delirium burger recipe.
'[It included] the creation of crazy posters and designs for the event’s communication, and above all creating a new food tasting experience.'
But their sushi-shaped burger has so far proved to be the most popular.
They said: ‘The sushi shaped burger we created in collaboration with tumblr & Master chef USA has been really appreciated by our community.
[There were] more than 1500 reblogs on tumblr and thousands of likes on Instagram and Facebook.'
