Menu: Armenia

Nom, nom. I’m in the grazing mood. Solution? An Armenian Meza buffet for this weekend’s Global Table.

Meza buffets are typically served cold or room temperature. Most of the dishes can be wrapped up or dipped in flatbread, making Meza great picnic food. This meal is vegetarian; add seasoned grilled chicken, beef, or lamb, if desired.
