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.

Season of plenty

All these months the heat and the dust have taken their toll on the country, dust covers everything, the grass is looking yellow and there is a general wilting affecting lettuces, humans and flowers.
Yet in all of this it seems that June is also the month of plentiful fruits and everywhere you go you encounter barrows piled high with delicious fruits ready to bring some sweet relief to parched palates. So where on the one hand we have the the heat's strength searing through everything, by the same token and a different strength we see its power to ripen and proliferate.

Mangoes, lychees, peaches and cherries from Kashmir, green young almonds which are delicious to crunch and apricots.Enjoy.


  1. Tony saw the peaches the other day and JUMPED for joy!

    My only question ... how do you sanitize them? Just let them be?? The skin is so soft ...

  2. Peel them completely after a good wash. As you may know I have never sanizized anything since arriving in Delhi and we have not had one day of illness ! x m
