Right now, I’m on a Greek food binge. I think it’s the warmer temperatures and the promise of Spring. When I’m sitting down, having a cold beer and picking on a platter of meze, my mind pretends it’s sitting in Santorini. Or at least, the Santorini that was before Greece’s economy collapsed. I digress though. I’ve been eating a lot of meze, and I just can’t get enough of it.

Give me some toasted pitas and an assortment of dips and snacks and I’m happy. Ubiquitous, stereotypical stuff like Tzatziki – a thick greek yoghurt mixed with cucumber, garlic, dill, lemon juice and seasoning. Add some taramasalata – the creamy, emulisifed salted and cured cod roe. Give me Skordalia – mashed potatoes mixed up with olive oil and garlic, or Tirosalata – creamy and spicy whipped feta cheese and peppers. Kalamarakia, deep fried calamari and yes, the delightful squid head – and other island nibbles and it’s just taste heaven. Right, I;m off to Mythos.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
