In September of 2008 Sef "BurgerBeast" Gonzalez opened up a blogger account with the hopes to document his burger excursions around South Florida and beyond. You can also catch his Top 25 Burgers list for the Miami Herald every May during National Burger Month. He began to branch out beyond burgers and cover all facets of comfort food along with some food history and trivia. Burger Beast has been all over South Florida television and was featured on Travel Channel's Burger Land Miami episode. He is also the owner of the world's only museum dedicated to the history of burgers, comfort food, and advertising, the Burger Museum by Burger Beast located at Magic City Casino in Miami, Florida. George Motz, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and founder of the Food Film Festival, is the author of the travel guide Hamburger America (Running Press), The Great American Burger Book (Abrams), and was hailed by the New York Times as a leading authority on hamburgers. He has also hosted and produced Burger Land (Travel Channel) And hosted Made In America (Travel Channel). George lives in Brooklyn, is hard at work on a musical about hamburgers, and will punch the next person who blames farting cows for global warming.
