Weston Native to Discuss Celeb Catering at Grange

WESTON, Conn. – Weston native and celebrity caterer Lulu Powers will be at the Norfield Grange’s Winter Farmer’s Market on Jan. 21 to sign copies of her new book, “Lulu Powers Food to Flowers.”

Powers’ book shares secrets of the catering world and recipes for any type of party,  even dinners created on the fly. Powers, who has cooked for such notables as Will Smith, Madonna, Bill Clinton and Arianna Huffington, will be at the Farmer’s Market from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Powers’ book will be available for purchase. Located at 12 Good Hill Road, the market will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Here is a recipe from Lulu Powers’ “Food to Flowers” Burger Bites with Lulu’s Special Sauce Makes 30 to 35

For the Burgers 1 pound ground beef 3 tablespoons ketchup 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce 1 teaspoon Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse and Roast Seasoning 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 loaf sliced potato bread For the Sauce 1 cup mayonnaise 2 teaspoons yellow mustard 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt 1/4 cup chopped cornichons 2 tablespoons chopped peperoncini 4 garlic cloves 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper 1/4 cup chopped scallion, both white and green parts (optional)

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, ketchup, barbecue sauce, porterhouse seasoning, cumin, and pepper together until well incorporated. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2-inch patties.

Roll out the bread with a rolling pin. Using a 1-inch cookie cutter, cut 4 rounds out of each slice of bread and set aside.

Combine all the sauce ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth.

In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, sear the patties for 1 to 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.

Serve the burgers between 2 potato bread rounds, with a dollop of sauce on each patty.
