    Mezedes or meze are the small plates of food served with ouzo, something like tapas in Spain.

    What's your favorite meze?

    Here are a few for your consideration:
    octopus
    meatballs
    sausage
    lakerda
    sardines
    marides
    anchovies
    calamari
    mussles
    saganaki
    eggplant
    bell peppers
    cheese
    olives
    taramosalata (served with home made bread)
    egg plant dip
    stuffed zucchini flowers
    stuffed vine leaves

    What are your favorites and can you recommend a recipe?

    Gosh - I'm a meze junkie and would be hard-pressed to pick even a few - I love them all!

    But I must say that when we go to the village in August, I do LOVE to drink really watered-down ouzo (the only time I ever drink it!) with a little plate of meze that is always offered alongside. On the plate you will usually find: a piece of bread spread with tzatziki; a cube or two of feta; some tomato and cucumber slices; a couple of olives; a couple of pieces of grilled octopus; some fried calamari; maybe a fried shrimp; some tiny fried anchovies called 'atherina'.

    Sipping the ouzo, nibbling on the meze, watching my kids swim and/or build sand castles, and watching the sun set...life is good at the village.
