Just because the Olympics are in Beijing this year doesn’t mean we should forget where they originated (or forget to eat foods from that place). Hence, Olea Mediterranean Bistro is offering up Greek foods to eat during August. How does goat cheese crostini, moussaka, and/or spanikopita sound? Yep, opa! is what we thought you said. Greek wines are also discounted during this promotion. Jump for all the details.
ENTER THE SPIRIT OF THE OLYMPICS WITH MARVELOUS GREEK RECIPES AND WINES
PLANO (August 13, 2008) – In honor of the 2008 Summer Olympics, Olea is highlighting the wonderful wines and foods of Greece, where the historic athletic events originated.
Guests will discover how delightful Greek wines are and how well these special vintages from the Mediterranean marry with the full-flavor cuisine of Greece. White wine matches perfectly with hors d’oeuvres of Marinated Greek Olives with Roasted Peppers, Hummus and Eggplant Caviar, Goat Cheese Crostinis and Shrimp in Phillo with Feta Cheese. Delightful Cabernet Sauvignon also pairs infinitely well with rich Spanakopita with Lemon Ouzo Butter Sauce, served with Almyra Chardonnay Skouras; Traditional Moussaka and Marinated Lamb and Beef Boulettes, served Basmati Rice and an immeasurably delightful Skouras Cabernet Sauvignon Saint George, Domaine Skouras. A traditional Baklava fully complemented by Mavrodaphne of Patras Boutari is a perfect dessert pairing.
All Greek wines are discounted for this August promotion. Telephone Olea at 972-378-0203 for reservations or more information.
