Chef Christina made a really yummy meal, and served up sweet, sincere stories to go along with each course. She and her husband were warm and entertaining hosts who even surprised us with a little live opera performance by a friend. You could feel her genuine joy in cooking and entertaining.
Christina is a WONDERFUL chef and created a lovely evening for us and for the important and pressing cause of homelessness. She welcomed my guest and I enthusiastically into her home, eager to pour us each a Greek cocktail with flavors of autumn, apple cider, and cinnamon. She had an exquisite spread of crudités with various Greek dips, cheeses, olives, and her scrumptious spanakopita. Dinner was exquisite and consisted of tender lamb slow cooked in a traditional clay pot from the Greek island of Sifnos with a side medley of perfectly roasted root vegetables along with traditional Greek wines. Dessert, a honey and cheese pie topped with thyme, honey from Greece, pomegranates and pistachios was absolutely delicious, so much in fact that I had to have seconds! The atmosphere she created outdoors was cozy and transportive...I felt like I was back in Greece, if only for a moment.
The food was absolutely delicious, the hospitality spot on, a lovely experience over all!
