Choate has been a pressure cooker this year, so to decompress, I’m spending the weekend at home with one of my best friends. How serendipitous that her mom is part Turkish and knows some wonderful Middle Eastern recipes! For dinner last night, she made a bounteous spread of koftes (similar to meatballs,) basmati rice (tasted like no rice I’ve ever had before,) and a feta cheese and mesculin green salad. The dinner reminded me of a great Mediterranean recipe I have for fig and olive tapenade, featured in “Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T.” Try it… you’ll like it!
