Meze, sometimes spelt Mezze, is derived from the Arabic word t’maza, meaning ‘to savour in little bites’. It’s the ultimate sharing food. Each small dish provides a different taste and textural sensation, making the experience of eating healthy food a constant, joyous adventure.

Your guide on this culinary adventure will be self-taught chef and founder of Arabica, James Walters.

The format:

We kick off at The Cookhouse which overlooks the buzzing Market, where you will produce an array of seasonal canapés featuring some of Arabica's larder essentials  like Freeke, preserved lemons, sumac, pomegranate molasses and Za'atar.

The day concludes with an informal meal, enjoying the food you’ve cooked, served with wine from along the spice Route.
