Corfu Recipes - Bekri Meze

This page gives you the opportunity to re-create some of your favourite Corfiot taverna recipes at home. This time, Bekri Meze ("Drunkard's" meze). This appetiser may get its name from the wine in the recipe or because it is best enjoyed with a few drinks!

Corfu Recipes - Bekri Meze
