Fava Board for Entertaining
I say, Ban the butter boards! Yes, and let's replace them with a tastier and more creative option. Let's start the Greek-style fava board movement!

More information about the Greek Fava Dip can be found in this link to a 2020 post. In that post, there are ideas for different toppings and combinations, as well as a recipe.
|My table of fava boards for my last birthday.|
On my last birthday, I invited a large group of friends and family. I kept things simple--self-serve soup and stew for the meal in my kitchen, and a table of fava boards in the garage. This was easy entertaining. Drinks were in the garage also. Guests could get a drink and socialize around the fava boards. If anyone dropped fava on the floor, hey, we were in the garage, so no problem!
I used a plastic-coated tablecloth on a sturdy table and cleaned it thoroughly. About thirty minutes before party time, I brought out the boards and assembled everything. A friend placed small battery-powered candles on the table, and everyone had a blast!
One board with feta. Another board without cheese for my vegan friends. Sweet peppers served as scoops for my gluten-free folks, and bread and pita for everyone else. Easy entertaining outside. Perfect for backyard entertaining or an effortless cocktail party on your balcony, porch, or deck. Add a few meatballs and stuffed grape leaves and you have a Greek Mezze party.
