Personal Notes:
Believe it or not. Kids love this. The tentacles tap right in to their inquisitive need for discovery and adventure. Exotic, a bit of spice, and great taste teams this appetizer up with any meal. When Mom and Dad visit, and this dish is served; Dalton lovingly comments " I'm sitting next to nano so I can eat his calamari too." This is the stamp of approval we love to hear from children.
