For two decades, Harry Menedjian, the videographer at Long Term Memories, spent time working on the developing and editing side of the film industry. In 1989, he branched off into a new endeavor that put him behind the camera.
Now, he captures the first kiss between a new husband and wife, the joyful celebration of a baptism, and the fleeting disappointment on a birthday boy's face when he realizes that he didn't turn into Superman after blowing out his candles. He takes all that footage, edits it down, and puts it on high-definition DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
Cooking enough food for family reunions, community events, and other large gatherings can be a laborious, time-intensive process. Fortunately, the chefs at Aslan Mediterranean Cuisine are accustomed to feeding the masses?they've been whipping up bountiful spreads of Armenian, Lebanese, and Greek cuisine since 1988. Their menu brims with hearty meat options as well as a variety of vegetarian-friendly selections, such as silken hummus prepared with a special mix of seasonings, and slow-cooked grape leaves stuffed with aromatic seasoned rice. From the grill, chefs also serve filet mignon and chicken kabobs in addition to their signature dish, arais?pita bread stuffed with lean ground beef and then roasted above an open flame. And no matter the size of the event, the chefs won't be intimidated since they are equally comfortable cooking for a party of 1,000 as they are cooking for one insatiable rhinoceros.
