THE MEZE TABLE
The sight of a meze table fully set is an inspiring one. “How on earth have they done all that?” you ask yourself; but if you look, on closer inspection a lot of the little dishes have come out of jars, cans, packets and the freezer. And you can produce a wonderful table as a buffet, hors d’oeuvres or simply for people to pick and choose. The suggestions I give below are far from comprehensive but they give an indication of what can be done. To this list you can also add small salad dishes, several of which are ideal for the meze table, particularly Tabbouleh and Fattoush. Produce a selection from this little lot and wait for the “Ooohs” and “Aaahs”.
