MEZEDAKIA AND OUZO! A Greek way of passing time!
Where ever you are make the summer last!
Everyone from a European background is complaining, about the life style in North America.
In Europe the south that is, they say life is more fun more relaxed and people enjoy the outdoors more and it makes sense, because the weather has a lot to do with it, but don’t kid yourselves it’s an individual matter how everyone decides and plans to spend the same 24 hours we all have no matter how the weather is.
Mezedakia and Ouzaki is a wonderful experience in a taverna by the sea. But it can also be exciting when friends get together to indulge in the tradition that once was a privilege of men but now enjoyed by women as well!!
So next time you have a few good friends over why not plan Mezedakia that go well with Ouzo and pretend you are in Santorini or Mykonos and who knows maybe next summer the dream can be a reality. Mezedakia can include a salad, a mélange of olives, cheese, octopus, shrimp, fried eggplant and zucchini and I love a Dako a specialty from Crete so easy and yet so different.
Don’t forget to add to the spirit of the evening some Greek music, Dalaras, Glikeria, Alexiou, are some of my favorite artists and your event with a little effort can be something out of the ordinary!
