A "little" dinner I prepared for a few friends from SPJCM in honor of our pal Hiral.
First, and in line with the Mediterranean theme, an Italian salad with fava beans, drizzled with oil and vinegar.
Next, my spaghetti specialty, made with my signature recipe pink sauce, tomato chunks and bits of black olive.
Finally, my coup de grace, grilled strips of tender chicken, marinated overnight in an experimental za'atar-based mixture, showered with shavings of parmesan cheese, and served with halves of tomato and mushroom grilled in the caramelized aftermath. Said experiment turned out to be a suprise hit, and will be repeated at future parties to confirm the results scientifically.
