Our members enjoyed a completely different dining experience at Yasma, a restaurant offering a delicious Lebanese/Syrian menu. Our specially selected menu included cold mezzes Hummus, Muhammera, Eggplant Mutabbel, Pita bread, Fattoush, and Yfalanji followed by hot Fried Kibbeh and Sambousak After enjoying the mezzes we shared a platter of Cherry Kebabs, a tasty specialty of Aleppo. Then Shish Tawouk, Aleppo Kebab and mushroom kebab and a tasty, sweet piece of baklawa for dessert.
Throughout the evening, we drank the wines from the Lebanese producer, Chateau Musar, the Jeune white, rosé and red blends, followed by a taste of 2016 Chateau Musar Red blend and also a tasting of the mature 1996 and 1998 Chateau Musar Red blend in magnum, courtesy of Jack Segal, a member and proprietor of the Musar wine agent Seacove Premium Wine and Spirits, both showing how beautifully the premium Chateau Musar wines can age.
Our thanks got to Jack Segal for his presentation of the wines and the donation of the mature magnums, to our Yasma hosts Sami and Kristina, and as always, to Milena for her photographic record of a very fine dinner.
