Cafe Drake HRV cherishes mezze meals with good friends, allowing us to chat and sip and nibble with leisure. With all dishes being served at once, and most cold or at room temperature, the mood is relaxed and perfect for casual summer dining. Kristin and Dolce popped over for our Turkish version, bearing gifts of flowers and a crisp dry Muscadet.
|Sweet Sweet Dolce!|
|Broiled Kabobs with Onions and Peppers|
|Labneh is a soft cream cheese made by straining Greek yogurt until thick and mild. Generally the labneh is then seasoned with salt and herbs and finished with a puddle of olive oil. We used mint and dill from the Cafe Drake HRV gardens.|
|Other small plates included boiled potatoes dressed with olive oil, vinegar and herbs and an assortment of crispbreads.|
|Dolce and Arabella needed a nap after all those mezze!|
