About Brooks Headley

Brooks Headley, chef-owner of Superiority Burger, was named best pastry chef in the country in 2013 by the James Beard Foundation. A punk rock drummer from a food-obsessed Calabrian family, with a bachelor's degree in English language and literature, Headley fell into restaurant work at the age of 27. His previous cookbook, Brooks Headley's Fancy Desserts, won the Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks from Food52. He lives in New York City.



About Superiority Burger Cookbook

With more than 90 mouth-watering recipes, Superiority Burger Cookbook lays bare the secrets of America’s most talked-about vegetarian restaurant, in recipes as a simple as they are irresistible. You’ll find out why Superiority Burger in New York City’s East Village is the hottest ticket in North America and the surrounding continents, and how to bring its blueprint for rebel compassion and culinary sophistication into your home. The book is divided into six flavorful sections—Sandwiches, Cool Salads, Warm Vegetables, Soups and Stews, Sweets, and Pantry Recipes—and reveals the recipes for some of the restaurant’s favorites: the Sloppy Dave, Burnt Broccoli Salad, Russet Potato–Coconut Soup, Tahini Ranch Romaine Salad, and, of course, the now legendary Superiority Burger.
