A very nice article by Larry Olmsted on……….


Greek Groaning Board: To me a day without meat is like a day without sunshine, but I’ll make an exception for the delightful finger foods of Katina’s Greek Café in Overland Park KS. Katina’s uses nothing but high quality, pure natural ingredients, and has developed a cult-like following, even before Oprah splashed her to national fame last year. Katina’s makes lots of varieties, traditional and not so much, of spanakopita and tiropita, both essentially little stuffed triangles of phyllo dough filled with feta and dry cheeses, spinach, eggs and herbs (honestly not really sure what the difference is, but I think tiropita is creamier) with tasty innards. Options run the gamut from sun dried tomatoes and roasted garlic to spinach to kalamata olive to mushroom and onion. These are traditionally a finger food appetizer, but buy enough of them, say one of Katarina’s party platters (336 pieces, $63), and you have a mixed meze dinner, plus they sell great baklava for dessert.
