Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

La cuisine indienne a la Parmesan

For those of you who have followed this blog from the start you may be aware that I have a part time cook who has been christened Parmesan and who is the funniest bloke in miles. Its not just the spicy cooking that keeps us sitting up, its his chanting and singing and his stern voice commanding my attention
he shouts and I leap to attention. This time he was calling me to show me another delight for the eyes- so I told him to hold still and I captured it for you all. Parmesan aka Cinnamon ( courtesy of Cal ) presents his new rice dish,yes you are seeing correctly the dish is decorated with red peppers and slivers of strawberries.

  1. So how did it taste? I can imagine if the rice was spicy ... that the strawberries added the right opposite effect??

  2. The rice was made with vermicelli and a rounder grain, a little turmeric and spice added so it was piquant and the strawbs and the strips of pepper just lifted it ! A winning but unexpected combination that is what makes this guy so fun. MM

  3. I think that you must be the inspiration behind his cooking!
