Wherever you are in the world, the first food that comes to mind when talking about fast food is hamburgers. One of the oldest foods in history with its origins dating back to the 13th century and being born in Germany, the hamburger became a world-famous classic as soon as it arrived in North America.
The origin of this food, which is associated with American culture, explains why it is so popular.
Considered a kind of hamburger expert, American George Motz has been traveling all over the United States for the last 20 years, trying different types of hamburgers. Motz, who dedicates his life to hamburger culture, shot a documentary called “Hamburger America” in 2004. Claiming to have eaten more than 20,000 hamburgers, Motz thinks the origin of the food dates back to the 13th century.
