Appetizer inspired by the Mideast. Fruit, medjool dates, tahini, soft cheese, crackers, nuts.
Medjool dates are my very favorite dessert.
First course inspired by Africa: spicy peanut soup, served over brown rice with peanuts for garnish.
Dinner included ginger chicken with spinach and sesame, salad, and steamed veggies — a combination of Thai and American influence.
Dessert was two varieties of shortbread, via Scotland. Morag’s roots are African and Scottish, although she is living in America and moving to Canada. I think her bon voyage community dinner reflected her global hopping well.
