For Greeks, sharing a meal with friends is a longtime tradition rooted back in ancient times. Symposia (meaning drinking with others) were social feasts, where people gathered around a table to communicate, relax and have fun together, rather than just satisfy their hunger. Till now, small plates, known as mezedes, are a sharable eating experience. Ranging from simple to elaborate, from cold to warm, they offer an immense variety of flavours, colours and textures.
