Meze or Mezze /ˈmɛzeɪ/
Here’s the perfect definition via Mai @almondandfig “Mezze or appetisers in my opinion best expresses the spirit of Arab hospitality. Guests in an Arab home are never asked if they would like something to eat...food is always offered and in abundance. Mezze dining is an experience, a truly social event. The mezze dishes are often served in small plates and range from warm to cold salads, olives, pastries, cheese, bread, dips, veggies and meats. The beauty of mezze dishes are in it’s versatility. Lots of vegetarians and meat options there, something for everyone”
This week #AprilisforArabfood called for mezze. I posted one mezze platter yesterday & here’s another that was a part of tonight’s dinner.
Thanks to the lovely ladies over at @almondandfig and @sweetpillarfood for taking the lead with this hashtag. Be sure to check it out for more Arab food inspo 🤤 - 5 minutes ago
