Mezze Feast



Four of my friends and I decided to put together a Mezze meal all using the same cookbook, Flatbreads and Flavors by Alford and Duguid. We met and chose recipes a couple of days ago and last night they all came with their husbands to our house to eat and eat and eat. It may just have been the best meal I ever had the pleasure of eating. The food was all Middle Eastern which made for healthy eating (maybe we ate a tad too much though) and unusual flavours. We had so much fun that we decided to do it again in a couple of months with Indian food as the theme. (Is it conincidence that I have used the verb eat six times in this post?)

Looks like a scrummy feast to me, wish I was there. I'm baking for a party tonight. Hope it turns out as yummy as yours looks. Happy New Year.

That's such a good idea. The food looks colourful and scrumptous. One of my favourites when eating out. Maybe I will try it at home too. Yum!
Happy New Year!

In my family we often have "themed pot-lucks" - it is a fun way to get together and spreads the cooking duties *because we all LOVE to eat! Your feast looks absolutely delish! and I just bet you all had a fun time ooohing and aaahing over every bite! Cheers! Evelyn
