Mega Yummo hosted their first ever fall luncheon recently featuring Natural Delights Medjool Dates. These Natural Delights are known to be the “Fruit of Kings”. It was a wonderful event full of family, friends, and tasty dates. Dates are a sweet fruit coming from the date palm popular in the Mediterranean and Middle East region. I was surprised that there were so many possibilities to what you can do with dates, from crostinis to desserts to complementing lamb chops. Hats off to Pearleen and her crew for the awesome and creative job with the Natural Delights Medjool Dates!
