Trust me on this you cretans... place a pretzel rod in the Hot Dog bun prior to placing the hot dog. Y’all can thank me at your leisure (pronounced lessjure). Pictured here for your pleasure is a jalapeño cheddar brat on a potato bun with a pretzel rod, dijon mustard, ketchup and Old Bay Seasoning. #feast
The Greek deity Hermes is best known as the fleet-footed messenger god, but Hermes was also the god of flocks and herds. This statuette is known as Hermes Kriophoros, ‘the Ram Bearer’. The god is depicted as a shepherd, carrying a ram under his left arm for sacrifice. Lamb makes a fine addition to an epic feast, and was a favourite meat for special occasions in Greece.
Try this Roast Lamb at home, as mentioned by Apicius in his cookbook 8.6.7.
1.25kg leg of lamb
2 1/2C milk
1/2C clear honey
1 Tbs pepper
1/2 tsp asafoetida powder
8 crushed fresh or dried dates
1 1/4C red wine
4 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs clear honey
4 Tbs fish sauce
A little cornflour
Combine marinade ingredients with meat and marinade overnight, turning occasionally. Soak dates in red wine at the same time.
Remove meat from marinade, pat dry, and roast in pre-heated oven at 200°C, well seasoned and with olive oil. Roast for 10 minutes for each 450g plus 20 minutes. When the meat is nearly ready pound dates to a pulp, and add to red wine, honey, fish sauce, and oil. Bring to a boil, reduce slightly and thicken with cornflour.
Leave meat to rest for 10 minutes before carving into thin slices and serving with sauce on the side.

The happiest table full of beauty and tasty food and incredible wine (shout out to our dear friends @proofwinedenver!) with a design that is intentional and beautiful and wowing; BUT, the most important thing: the community and togetherness that the table provides. The swapping of stories and perspectives and the getting in each other’s personal space and the passing and asking and receiving. We hope our service teaches the importance and magic of bringing people together and makes people feel a little less alone and little more like family. That’s what it is truly all about. #feastdinnerparty#letsfeastcolorado
