Mazi: Modern Greek Food

"Probably the best Greek restaurant in England, Mazi is pure alchemy and poetry."
-- Alain Ducasse, renowned triple Michelin-starred French chef

The Greek word mazi means "together" -- gathering, company, mass, combination, mixture. In the realm of food, mazi is a stimulating combination of flavorful dishes perfect for sharing.

Mazi features 115 inspired interpretations of traditional Greek food, including many dishes that happen to be gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan. The recipes are easy and quick to make and use readily available ingredients, with alternatives noted for the few specialty ingredients. The recipes include:
