We had dinner at Kokkari sponsored by Merck, the speaker was HOPA’s past president, Jim Koeller. He was an entertaining and knowledgeable speaker. We enjoyed an excellent dinner during his talk.
Pikilia – Greek spreads of melitzanosalata, tzatziki, & taramosalata served with dolmathes & pita bread. The spreads were flavorful and very smooth.
Spanakotiropita – traditional filo pies of spinach, feta, leeks, & dill. The crust was oh so flakey…
Horiatiki – “classic Greek salad” of tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, oregano, olives & feta. Very refreshing.
Patates sto Furno – oven roasted potato with oregano & lemon.
Horta – braised wild greens with lemon.
