George and Diane, our Greek friends we met at the Fancy Food Show in Atlanta, Georgia. They prepared the wedding dinner and this dish, Briam, at the Kawanhee Inn September 11, 1999.
When we hear that date I have two thoughts: the terrible terrorists and the beautiful, sunny, blessed wedding day on the shore of Webb Lake opposite Mt Blue in the Western Mountains of Maine. Our family and friends shared the day and we feel fortunate to have our wedding day to remember. We have many more good memories of Greek food when we spent three weeks on a culinary journey in Greece at George and Diane’s home.
