Brian Goess has a quest. Brian’s goal is to cook every recipe in the magazine Cook’s Illustrated. Occasionally, he brings along others to share in the triumphs and tragedies. Tonight was the second of our dinner-and-a-movie ventures with Furman connections. Several of the chemistry faculty gathered to try the Cook’s Illustrated version of easy gyros.
The gyros consisted of ground lamb cooked into patties, Mediterranean flat bread, lettuce, tomatoes, and a homemade tzatziki sauce made from yogurt, cucumber, minced garlic, and lemon juice. The result was quite good, especially served along side Laura’s greek salad from Harrod’s.
Tonight’s movie was "The Man Who Knew Too Little." Being an older crowd, there were none of the missed cultural references that plague last night’s gathering.
