Tyler Florence’s “guilty pleasure” is super relatable
What makes In-N-Out Burgers so irresistible? Eat serious claims burgers trigger “all the pleasure centers of the brain,” with American “ooey-gooey” cheese, a sweet toast, high-quality tomatoes and iceberg lettuce, a thick slice of onion and their signature sweet and tangy pickle spread. (Interestingly, as praised as their burgers are, In-N-Out’s fries are notoriously underwhelming, as the San Francisco Gate and Thrillist).
The fast food chain also has other celebrity chef fans, including Gordon Ramsay, Alton Brown, and Ina Garten (via Taste of the house). The late chef and French cuisine icon Julia Child also once said of In-N-Out’s “Well, that’s awfully good” (via First we feast). Food Network star Guy Fieri, â€œChoppedâ€ host Padma Lakshmi, acclaimed chef and French Laundry owner Thomas Keller, and Momofuku owner David Chang are also fans. The late Anthony Bourdain, host of “Parts Unknown,” once said hitting In-N-Out was one of his favorite things when he visited Los Angeles. It was often the first meals he ate before leaving the airport and the last thing he ate before leaving. â€œWhat can I say about this place? It’s the only fast food chain that I really love,â€ he once joked (via First We Feast).
Obviously, Tyler Florence is in great company when he craves a fresh and delicious burger from this hot spot.
