A lot of classic Cretan foods can now be bought in the supermarket back home, but they’re not quite the same. Making them yourself can make all the difference, especially if you can find good fresh ingredients. Here are a few mezze dishes that I’ve learned recipes for over the years.
All of these can be served as meze (don’t forget a Greek salad) and several of them can be served as a full meal. Each image links to a full recipe on our sister site Open-Sauce-Recipes
