Recap – A Taste of Mani

A couple of weeks ago I held the last Greek Supper Club of the year, inspired by the region of Mani. It was another sold out dinner at St. Lawrence Market with the dishes inspired by the region and wines from Laconia.

Thanks you to Nisos Importing for the Greek olive oil and many of the Greek specialty ingredients, Theoni Water (Canada) Celebrity Wines & Spirits and Apostolos Gerakanis for pouring the wines.
