    I am planning a dinner party. So, last year I took four out to eat at an Ethiopian restaurant. The number has doubled and that is not going to happen. So, to satisfy the wanderlust I'm doing a Mediterranean mezze platter. I wanted to throw some stuff in there that my son hasn't had as well as stuff he really loves. This will be in August so it's going to be hot.

    Cerignola and Kalamata olives
    Cheese
    Saganaki (maybe)

    Hummus
    Baba ghanoush


    Tabbouleh
    maybe
    Tunisian Carrot Salad - Aglaia's Table οn Kea Cyclades
    maybe
    https://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/matbucha/

    meat Bourekia

    Garides se Lathoxitho (marinated chilled shrimp)

    souvlaki or gyros

    tiramisu (has to happen)

    take stuff out? Anything I should throw in?

    Dolmas and a Greek Salad; Pita Bread and an olive tapenade; and don't forget the Ouzo.

    Do fish have livers?

    I'm not making a pate. :cheeky-smiley-018:

    This is way too relaxed for that and I hate liver.

    I've been making a marvelous hot-weather cocktail out of seltzer with a scoop of gelato in it.

    It's not on the Mediterranean theme really except for the word gelato, but it's damn refreshing.

    Or how 'bout this --- rose water iced tea.
