Allure of the Spice Trail, 7:00 P.M.
Sarma, Somerville, MA
Celebrate International Women’s Day at the Beard House with a modern Middle Eastern feast from Cassie Piuma, a newly minted 2016 JBF Award semifinalist for Best Chef Northeast. After more than a decade of honing her craft at JBF Award winner Ana Sortun’s Oleana, Piuma opened the meze mecca Sarma in 2013 to rave reviews. Diners can expect dishes highlighting the chef’s signature take on Mediterranean small plates, such as Eggplant-Wrapped Haloumi Cheese with Pomegranate, Muhammara, and Mint, Lettuce Wraps with Salmon Falafel, Whipped Avocado, and Mango Pickles, and Barbecued Harissa Duck with Orange Blossom, Carrots, and Pistachios; Sweet Potato Pancakes with Goat Cheese and Salty Date Butter; and Beets with Chermoula, Citrus, and Crispy Quinoa, which mix seasonal ingredients with the robust flavors of the Fertile Crescent for an alluring menu guaranteed to transport your taste buds across the Atlantic.
