My husband and I tried a Culinary Meet-up (cook a supper with 13 other foodies). It was very enjoyable and we came away with several delicious recipes. This particular recipe (and the pita chips which should partner it, look it up) was brought by one of the people from their own home (rather than made fresh on site). It was delicious and easy to duplicate.
