If you’ve ever wondered how to build the perfect platter for parties, events or an alternative to the everyday weeknight supper, Mezze is what you are looking for. Traditionally, it is a selection of small dishes served before a meal. We’ve kept with its traditional roots and vamped up the style to show you how to create your own tasty Mezze platter for any occasion. This class will give you a healthful modern approach to the classic Mezze plate. Serve it before the main dish as a pre-course, on its own or simply make it the star of your next cocktail party.
