Μεζέ ;o)

μεζέ, plural μεζέδες / μεζέδακια
mez, mezthes, mezdakia - pronounced meh-ZEH-thes)

- et "must" nr du er i Hellas
sitte ned med venner og bare nyte!
S hva er "mez"?
- a must when you are in Greece,
to sit down at a table with friends and just enjoy!
So what is "mez"?

 

"The word (still on mez) is found in all the cuisines of the former Ottoman Empire and
comes from the Turkish meze "taste, flavor, snack, relish",
borrowed from Persian مزه (mazze "taste, snack" < mazīdan "to taste").
The English word was probably borrowed from the Greek version mezs (μεζές)."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meze

"Ordet finnes i alle kjkkener fra det tidligere Ottomaske Imeriet og kommer fra tyrkisk meze
"smak, aroma, snack, relish", - lnt fra persisk.
Det engelske ordet var antageligvis lnt fra den greske versjonen.


Mest vanlig er mez med ouzo eller tziporou,
men jeg foretrekker den med RETSINA ;o)
Most common is mez with ouzo or tziporou,
but I prefer it with RETSINA ;o)


Μπουγιουρντι
Ah, for starters I will have Bougiorti. - baked feta cheese, an original recipe
from the north of Greece. Served with slices of tomato,
green chili and olive oil.
"Ah, som forrett vil jeg ha Bougiorti." - bakt feta ost, en oppsrift fra nord Hellas.
Servert med tomat skiver, grnn chili og olivenolje. Nam nam!

     

"Mez is the ultimate expression of a passion for the sharing of food.
In Greek tradition, numerous small dishes or appetizers are served
as a sign of generous hospitality."

from mezekitchen.co.uk/meze/ 

"Mez er det ultimate uttrykk for en lidenskap for deling av mat.
I gresk tradisjon, er det mange sm retter eller forretter servert
som et tegn p generse gjestfrihet. "

"There are many dishes traditionally served as mezethes,
however there's a great deal of flexibility in what's included on the table
depending on personal preference."

http://greekfood.about.com/od/glossary/g/def_meze.htm 

"Det er mange retter som tradisjonelt serveres som mezethes,
men det er en stor grad av fleksibilitet i hva som er inkludert p bordet
- Avhengig av personlige preferanser ".

In Greece usually accompany by ouzo, raki, wine, retsina and beer. 
The mezs are usually salty, to encourage drinking more drink.


Mez br nytes med gode venner!
Mez should be enjoyed with good friends!
