Opening Reception

Tomorrow evening, February 16th @ 6pm the opening reception for Vessels from the Past will be held. As a special treat Professor Fine has requested special Egyptian appetizers for the event! Since I have absolutely no idea what any of these items are I thought a bit of research was in order. So according to Wikipedia these are the basic descriptions of each dish (oh for shame I know, but how wrong could this be??? LOL): 

Tabouleh –  Finely chopped parsley, bulgur, mint, tomato, spring onion, and other herbs with lemon juice, olive oil and various seasonings, generally including black pepper and sometimes cinnamon and allspice.

Baba Ghanoush w/fried pitasA dish of eggplant (aubergine) mashed and mixed with various seasonings. A popular preparation method is for the eggplant to be baked or broiled over an open flame before peeling, so that the pulp is soft and has a smoky taste.

Red Pepper HummusA dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.

Fried falafelA fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas and/or fava beans.

Feta cheese cubes w/grapes

Lemonade punch

Make sure you stop by and see the exhibit this week. It comes down this Friday February, 19!
