Recap Mare Nostrum: A Fish and Seafood Supper Club

Spread the love

Last month many of us stepped away from all the meat and rich foods that were indulged during the festive season. It’s become a Kalofagas tradition to celebrate the new year with a fish and seafood themed Greek Supper Club.

January 21st was a delicious devening of fish and seafood dishes at Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market Kitchen.

All dishes were prepared using Cretan olive oil from Nisos Importing and Greek wines from IntraVino and poured by Apostolos Gerakinis.
