Long time customers and High School friends, Bob & Teri stopped by today to say hello and to gnash. We were just pulling the pan from the oven and, having added seasonal ramps, decided to try the batch out on them. What can we say? The Maitakis were a hit, and before we could photo the plate, there you go! We can hardly believe that it's been 25 years for Robert & Teri and more than happy to put our 2 cents of info for their revisit to Greece celebrating their anniversary!
All-natural, non-alcoholic, ouzo flavored soda floats a scoop of Anna's all-organic, ouzo ice cream! Root beer, move over! The Greeks have landed! The girls weren't making a sound but: sluuuuuurp punctuated with, "yuuuum!"
The Gardens have been helping families celebrate for over two decades. Select quantities and pricing from the "Takeout Menu" and the "Party Trays". Give us three days to prep and your party will be the talk of the crowds of celebrants!
Suzanne & Peter celebrated the Church Blessing of their 30 year nuptials @ the Gardens on Sunday. They celebrated with 66 other of their family and friends--both sides were filled. Congrats, kids!
How does that happen! Tables ordered double, maybe we'll have to limit per capita....huh?
What is this latest "animal" appearing more often on our "Additional Entrees" list? Soupia: cuttlefish, an "inking" cephalopod in the mollusk family and closely related to both the octopus and the squid, is an excellent source of a high quality, renewalble protein with a flavor similar to scallops and a texture like octopus without its suction cups--yep, that's what they're called.
It got our business going, Lemon Cream Boughatsa, and now, we have reshaped it for your family celebrations--organic milk, sugar, eggs, cream, butter & lemon peel thickened with semolina and folded into delicate, crisp layers of fillo. Frozen for "day of baking," YOUR celebration! Specially priced for this months family celebrations! $15! We will reserve one for you convenience.
By the director of "Dog Tooth," the Oscar nominated film, Yiorgos Lanthimos' most recent effort, "Alps" 2011 is the Gardens' sponsor pick for this year's International Film Festival.
Two showings, Friday, April 13 at 9:30 and Thursday, April 19 at 9:20. The Gardens will sponsor a pre-Movie dinner specially priced at $20/pp. Please reserve as spaces are limited to 35.
Even though the slush was piled at the door, our Leap Year Symposia. A Series, XIV was a night to be remembered: great food, company, wine & art---the components of a great event! With Jim Denomie's provocative, stylized canvases showing overhead, platters of scallops, mushrooms, beetroot soup, rabbit, turkey and hand-rolled black walnut baklava were passed below. Don't miss the next one, March 26 with Steve the international baker!
The snow has barely stopped and slush piles are making life difficult for pedestrians in NordEast, but we're stirring up pots and pans of new dishes for tonight's Symposia. A Series. Already the hand-rolled black walnut baklava is cooling on the racks and the Rabbit Stifado is thickening in the brasier; golden beets and fennel root are simmering in sherry that will become the base of the second course soup. The guest list is increasing and today we have had more fun than stress in a long time. I guess we're growing into this whole concept!
