A Big Fat Greek Dinner Party

As I mentioned in my last post, while I was in Cincinnati for the Fourth of July, I helped my aunt host a dinner party focused on Greek cuisine. Since she and my uncle had just returned from nearly a month long trip to Greece, she wanted to share her culinary experience with her friends.…
