Story of the hamburger
STORY OF THE HAMBURGER
The hamburger is the most eaten food in the whole world. The first hamburgers were made and sold in Connecticut in 1895 by an American called Louis Lassen . Louis called them hamburgers because he was given the recipe by sailors from Hambourg in Germany.
Hamburgers became a favourite meal in America in the early part of the twentieth century. Their popularity grew even more after the second world war, when they were bought in large quantities by teenagers who preferred fast food to family meals. In 1948 two brothers Dick and Mad Donald opened a drive-in hamburger restaurant in San Bernardino, California.
Since then over 25,000 Mcdonald's restaurants have been opened worldwide and now 35 million MacDonald's hamburgers are eaten every day in 115 countries from India to the Artic Circle.
