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.

Autumnal splendour - round 2

In my previous post I was out there trying to find colour in Queensland. A visit to South Australia satisfied that need and I have come back bursting with it - as was the area.  Autumn was turning the leaves and everywhere you looked the landscapes were ripe for artists. Of course one of the most famous of Ausralian watercolour painters, Hans Heysen did exactly that, living his life in South Australia and recording for all of us the splendour of the eucalypts and the colours of the country side. 
Starting from the vines and then moving on to the trees, the purple beeches next to the golden ashes. The maples and the planes all competing for the best and the brightest. We travelled in the Barossa and the Adelaide hills, savouring the Australian landscapes, with trees the colour of deep purple right next to a vibrant yellow. Turning the corner there were hedgerows and dry stone walls reminiscent of Europe and the UK and in between hamlets and small communities which were quaint and full of their 200 year heritage. South Australia was the only state settled by free settlers after all.
