MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – The Saffron Supper Club returns with a modern Greek feast this Sunday, November 10th at Lobster Bar Sea Grille at 404 Washington Avenue. Executive Chef Pano I. Karatassos of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, will base the first of this traveling dinner series on his book, “Modern Greek Cooking”.
Karatassos will fly from Atlanta just for the special occasion, and the evening will start with an intimate cocktail reception accompanied by small bites. Later, the main event will consist of a curated three-course dinner served “family-style”.
Some of the nine amazing tastings include Chef Karatassos’ own contemporary take on traditional Greek dishes such as: Red Pepper & Feta Spread, Char Grilled Mediterranean Octopus, Whole Fish Royal Dorade steamed in Grape Leaves, Lamb Chops, and Blueberry Galaktoboureko for dessert.
The Lobster Bar Sea Grille team commented on the culinary and cultural mission of the dinner series, “Saffron Supper Club is a roving pop-up dinner club exploring the food and culture of the Middle East. It was created by Sara Liss and Chef Maude Eaton. Each dinner has a different theme that’s explored.”
The book Modern Greek Cooking contains 100 of the top recipes Chef Karatassos has served at his award-winning restaurant Kyma in Atlanta, Georgia.
His beloved recipes are ‘paying homage to the flavors and traditions of Greece, and to the wealth of insight about Greek cooking passed down from his grandmother, as well as his classical French training, and even a touch of his Southern roots’.
Admission is $65 per person, and seats are limited, to attend guests must RSVP through here. In addition, guests will be able to purchase their own copy of Chef Pano’s book for $18.
