The Dames Potlucks in the Hood

“Tapas Potluck”
at the home of Dame Suzanne Florek
It was a small but mighty crew that gathered at Dame Suzanne Florek’s charming Western Springs home, armed with olives and sausage-stuffed jalapeño peppers, lamb meatballs and Marcona almonds. Suzanne, showing her incredible facility with Mediterranean flavors, whipped up a perfect Paella, complete with chicken, chorizo, cod, mussels, shrimp and clams. It was a wonder to behold! She pulled out her plancha and grilled olive-oil soaked bread, which she then topped with roasted heirloom cherry tomatoes for a quick pan tomate. The Garnacha flowed as we shared stories and bonded over the delectable goodies spread before us on the table. Gilding the lily was a magnificent citrus and almond cake in front of the fireplace, and happily sated, we went off into that good night.
