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.

The Acropolis

No trip to the Greek world would be complete without a visit to the Acropolis and the last time we were here my eldest was a knight in shining armour brandishing a plastic sword on its ramparts. Interestingly he was the most keen to return. If you go, do not miss the new Acropolis Museum which is a simple in its architecture but a wonderful place using natural light to enhance its exhibits. It has incorporated the digs from down under in its construction which means that you could see the archaeological remains through the glass floors. Two floors up I found that a little disconcerting. The Parthenon friezes are just breathtaking and the film is worth watching.

Lovely old tin pots of feta cheese which make plant pots for cacti
