Party fare with pairings from the MLCC

I had the great pleasure of participating as the caterer for an event with the MLCC. I gave them the recipe items and they paired them beautifully with their selections. This is always a great choice for home entertaining. Many of these items have been featured previously on this blog, such as tapenade, spanikopita, Kerala Shrimp, etc.

Happy New Year and Enjoy!
