Warm Goat Cheese Mezze Recipe

Zingerman's Épices de Cru Spice of the Month Recipe

A mezze is an assortment or spread of small dishes. Mr. Dionysios’ Wild Herb Blend (A fragrant blend of wild herbs that grow in the mountains of Chios, Greece similar to Herbs de Provence) is a perfect match for warm goat cheese. Serve this combination as an appetizer or cocktail style with other mezzes.
