Near East Party!

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting a Near East In-Home Party. It was a wonderful evening full of delicious fun, friends and fun. My group of friends decide to have a potluck dinner where everyone bought a different Mediterranean inspired dish. We had a wonderful smorgasbord of food everything from Italian to Greek.
We had a variety of hummus, tzatziki and pita for starters. Then a main course of couscous, greek salad, mujadara, mousaka, greek chicken and of course greek ice cream for dessert. (ok it was regular ice cream but we had to come up with a fancy name for it.)
Everyone really enjoyed sharing recipes. We learned about different ways to prepare and jazz up traditional dishes that we typically make. Everyone also liked the party favors which included a box of Near East Parmesan Couscous, Trivet, coupons and recipes.

About Near East
Near East started in 1962 in Worcester, MA as a mall, family-owned company. George and Hannah Kalajian immigrated from Armenia to the United States and set up a grocery store in 1940. Soon after the store opened, Hannah began serving sandwiches and home-cooked hot meals at a twelve-stool luncheonette counter adjoining the grocery store. Demand rapidly increased for Hannah’s tradition roasted chicken and Armenian-style rice pilaf so she began to package it. Over the year, production moved out of Hannah’s kitchen and into modern manufacturing facilities. Today, the Near East family of products includes more than 30 different flavors and varieties of rice pilafs, couscous, and other grain dishes.
