Mezze: Small Plates to Share

Mezze features a mouth-watering collection of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dips, bites, salads and other small plates to enjoy as appetizers or light meals. As an ancient tradition, mezze is the heart and soul of modern culinary life in the Middle East. The word ‘mezze’ is thought to have derived from the Persian ‘maza’ meaning ‘taste’ or ‘relish’.

At its simplest, mezze can be represented by a bowl of gleaming olives marinated in lemon juice and crushed coriander seeds, or a mixture of roasted nuts and seeds tossed in salt and dried thyme. At its most elaborate, it can be presented as an entire feast comprising a myriad of little colorful dishes, each the bearer of something savory or sweet but always utterly delicious.
