Opa! Greek Night at the Summit Club BY LYNETTE SAVAGE, Vice Chancelier-Argentier THE GREEK PHYSICIAN Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." There is noth- ing like Greek fare to cure what ails the spirit. The Tulsa Bailliage's Greek dinner at the Summit Club on September 10, 2017 was hosted by Vice Conseiller Culinaire Andrew Revelis, who also designed a commemorative pin featuring the Greek Parthenon. The event was a sell-out, as there are apparently many Greek food enthusiasts in the bailliage. For dinner, attendees were seated at a single, long table decorated in the tradi- tional Greek colors of blue and white. While savoring grilled octopus paired with Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko/Athiri 2016, one could imagine being in Santorini viewing the Athiri vines trained to their bas- ket shapes that protect the grapes from harsh weather. Another culinary standout was braised goat youvetsi with bordelaise sauce. The evening closed with saganaki flambé—the tra- ditional Greek treat of flaming kasseri cheese prepared tableside—served with chilled Ouzo 12. All were capti- vated by the flames produced by the fifty-plus servings of saganaki and equally pleased that these flames and the resultant smoke did not set off the ballroom's indoor sprinkler system.
