Art Lecture Lunches

In October 2014 the DCA hosted three Art Lectures focusing on the works of El Greco, Goya and Sorolla. The committee and I thought it might be fun to theme the food and offer Traditional Spanish dishes.  The food proved to be a big hit and I was proud of how adventurous everyone was with some of the more unusual offerings.  I am reprinting the menus and clicking on the highlighted items will lead you to that particular recipe.  I shall be updating the recipe list as quickly as I can so check back or subscribe.
