As Promised at Anna's Hortopita Demo @ the EcoExperience Building Thursday!
!8 residents happily munched on Gyros and Boughatsas Friday!
It seems like only yesterday when Scott & Melissa were married at the Nature Reserve & Christofer headed the staff that catered their reception. But today they returned to the Gardens with their two children and were greeted by Christofer's son, Baby Lazaros who shared his crayons while the three tots nibbled on pita.
Saragli, a rolled form of Baklava makes wonderful "small bites" or coiled, a toothsome means of unwinding an evening with conversation and conviviality. Offered as an additional dessert, the Gardens has been filling more and more special orders for take out and catering.
World premier, the Gardens' Ouzo Flo! Share a bottle with two scoops of Anna's Organic Ouzo Ice Cream in a frosted glass or treat yourself to the light, not-too-sweet flavor of licorice soda and a single scoop of ice cream that quenches any thirst! Never cloying!
As seen on Kare 11 last Monday and shared with over 500 guests at the Toast & Taste of the Arboretum last Thursday, Sarangli is a coiled form of Baklava that brings out the roastiness of the nuts before our Ames honey syrup is poured over it. Topped with Ouzo scented ice cream and shared makes dreams come true!
Jim & John have been eating at the Gardens for almost as long as it's been open. Last Friday we brought the food to them! Thanks!
Long time customers and High School friends, Bob & Teri stopped by today to say hello and to gnash. We were just pulling the pan from the oven and, having added seasonal ramps, decided to try the batch out on them. What can we say? The Maitakis were a hit, and before we could photo the plate, there you go! We can hardly believe that it's been 25 years for Robert & Teri and more than happy to put our 2 cents of info for their revisit to Greece celebrating their anniversary!
All-natural, non-alcoholic, ouzo flavored soda floats a scoop of Anna's all-organic, ouzo ice cream! Root beer, move over! The Greeks have landed! The girls weren't making a sound but: sluuuuuurp punctuated with, "yuuuum!"
