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.

Those Greeks knew a thing or two

While wandering around in Sydney Botanical Gardens I came across this semi circle, The Henry Kendall seat, dedicated to the poet, Henry Kendall, and the winged horses carved by L Bicego in 1939. It was the highlight of my day - first because it was in my own language, so far from my origins, and secondly because it espoused thoughts and feelings which find me floating with them.

The translation of the words are : 

I walk on air 

 Contemptuous of the sun 

Just the perfect quote for this sun soaked country and what some of those early settlers had to contend with.
