my greek table with diane kochilas
Meze Society

Diane explores the meze tradition of small plates of vibrant food meant to be shared. In Volos, she meets up with a Meze meister who creates traditional meze dishes and heads off for a sip and a bite to a cutting-edge restaurant where they push the limits of meze. She uncovers the vast variety and robust flavors of the meze table and invites a wine expert into the kitchen for advice on what to pair when the meal includes spice, yogurt, cheese, crunch, comfort, seafood, meat and more, all in one sitting. The pungent Greek yogurt dip, tzatziki, is the perfect match for Diane's juicy keftedes, or Greek meatballs. A fiery shrimp dish gets a cooling dash of feta. All make up the mosaic of the meze table, with a few regional cooks' delights tossed in for fun. Discover the fun and festive meze tradition. Tzatziki, Greek yogurt dip; Keftedes, Greek meatballs; Shrimp saganaki with ouzo and feta cheese.
