My name is Sophie Lyons and Meze & More is my catering business which I launched in 2018.
I have been very into food and cooking since I was a teenager, but my passion for it really grew once I’d finished university and moved into my own flat, where I had the freedom to cook as often as I wanted and whatever I wanted.
I enjoy all cuisines, but my favourite dishes include those that are influenced by Greece and the Middle East, hence the title of my business ‘Meze & More’.
Although traditionally the word ‘meze’ refers to a selection of hot and cold small plates served at the beginning of a meal in these countries, I don’t think it has to mean just that. In the same way that the Spanish have tapas for lunch and/or dinner, I love laying a table full of different dishes which everyone can help themselves to and eat as much or as little as they want.
I now write a regular blog which is a platform for me to share my experiences of cooking and eating Greek and Middle Eastern foods that all contribute to the concept of Meze (and more!)
I cater for a range of events for customers in the North West – please visit the Dinner Parties & Events page for further details. I also attend regular markets and food pop up events to meet customers and sell my produce. Click here to see where you can find me next!
