The Meze (Appetizers & Starters)

 More than appetizers (orektika in Greek), although the dishes are often the same, the meze is an accompaniment to beverages – usually alcoholic – and mezethes (plural) are often combined to make an entire meal. Each meze is served on a small plate (more than one plate for a large group), and the choice of what to serve is limitless. From a small plate of leftovers or sliced tomatoes, cheeses, and cucumbers, to prepared dishes, the mezespeaks to hospitality. Here are some favorite mezethes.
