OUR ITALIAN CHEF GIORGIO RECOMMENDS

MEZEDES
These are small dishes, which are a precursor to the main meal. You may have a dozen saucers, each with a small portion of a particularly delicacy. Getting the right combination of these dishes is as crucial as the recipes themselves because a good spread of mezedes is all about balance.

Crab claws stewed with muscat wine
Octopus in red wine
Stuffed vine leaves
Pan-fried cheese
Spicy courgette fritters
Grilled aubergines with lemon pesto
