Fine Dining Event...Saturday February 22nd Greek multi-course tapas dinner

Tapas

 Tapa's consists of multi courses but smaller plates you can get the most flavors out of every plate instead of everything being on one.

Each Tapas plate ingredient owns the dish. The main focus is the one main item.

I love exploring different nationalities so menu options are endless for each and every client that comes to me without having to be stuck with a set menu which brings us to this dinner I did on Saturday.

This dinner was completely a Greek Tapas theme

I wanted to be very traditional with the dishes while enhancing the dishes with a modern twist...

Here's the menu I put together an executed with pictures.
