“Backyard Burger Bars” are a gourmet twist to traditional picnic fare
Coast to coast, Americans agree that there is nothing better than a grilled burger to bring family and friends together in the summer. Jim and Libby Calato, proprietors of City Gourmet catering offer some new burger recipes with add-your-own-style toppings that are sure to please at your next backyard grill. Also noted are some tips for making juicy burgers packed with flavor.
“What adds the backyard fun is that all of these recipes can be served deconstructed. This ways, your guests get to have fun piling on their traditional favorite toppings and experiment with some new gourmet items,” said Jim Calato. “Get a little messy, that’s what the backyard is for.”
The Calatos also offer sweet pairings for palates of all ages.
“One of our favorite summer memories is making s’mores around our campfire,” said Libby Calato. “We have discovered a way to bring these flavors to life with everyone’s new favorite dessert – the cupcake. The perfect ending to a perfect day – so sweet that you won’t even miss the fire.”
