Cordially Invites You
To the first ever ‘Ancient Dinner’, a private dinner in an intimate setting inspired by the Ancient Greek Symposia at IRON GATE, one of Washington’s very best historic restaurants.
Jerolyn E. Morrison, Ph.D., an archeologist and potter will present “Minoan Tastes”, a cultural and culinary exploration featuring ancient flavors from the land, sea and sky of the Greek island of Crete.
She will illustrate the culinary history of Minoan Crete by serving a meal created in collaboration with Iron Gate’s Chef Anthony Chittum. The ancient inspired dishes will be cooked in clay pots and served in Minoan-style hand-made cooking vessels using food ingredients available during the Minoan period (ca. 3000-5000 BCE).
