Yogurt Honey Sundae. A Classic.

A classic eaten for millenia year round in Greece: thickened yogurt from Old Home sprinkled with toasted almonds and hazelnuts, drizzled with Ames Farm Clover honey--sweet. tangy, rich, yet light, nutty. Some times there aren't enough seasons to indulge!

Arni Kokkinisto: Braised Lamb Shank with Portobella Caps and Diced Tomatoes over Whole Wheat Spaghettini

Say goodbye to Arni Kokkinisto! It's a wrap..now that we're taking off our wraps and Spring is here! Probably the last time we'll prepare this winter favorite (unless, of course we are asked at least three times.) So, fresh batch! Get it before it's gone!

We're pairing it with Lafkiotis Agiorgitiko, a smooth, full-bodied red that piques the cinnamon and laurel of the sauce and underscores the natural sweetness of the tender shank meat.

Jorja's Memorial for Michael
