Mezzes are small plates perfect for entertaining and sharing. They're found all around the Mediterranean and the Middle East. In Spain they're known as tapas and are served with drinks as a way of stimulating the appetite. They can also make an entire casual and delicious meal with family and friends. Combine several on a big platter or serve on individual plates: the choice is yours! 

In this class, we'll be hands-on making a wide variety of vegetarian mezzes, demoing a few elements and sharing some plating ideas to wow your guests should you recreate these at home, perhaps for a festive dinner party around the holidays. Food can absolutely look beautiful by following a few simple tips and adding some thoughtful touches (edible flowers, nice plates, complementary textures and colours, etc) 

Price includes 2.5-hour class, all ingredients, recipes, some bonus homemade Middle Eastern snacks upon arrival, a glass of homemade hibiscus kombucha or tea on arrival and a shared feast after we're done cooking. Wine and beer available for purchase.
