Recap – Evening at the Limani

This past Sunday I held a Greek Supper Club titled “Limani”, a celebration of fish and seafood with dishes inspired by the tavernas near many of Greece’s ports (limania).

All the dishes were be paired with Greek wines by Chris Dedes of Majestic Wines & Spirits and many specialty Greek ingredients and Cretan olive oil from Nisos Importing.

Thank you to Kent Armstrong for the photos, and most of all – to all the guests who attended.
