Thank you for those of you who cooked along with us for the last two Fridays. We've got such a kick out of seeing you cook our food. We have always enjoyed cooking for people, sharing recipes and talking about food - it's the reason we started Mezze 4 and a half years ago. Now that we are cooking and chatting less these days we thought cooking together with you would be good fun for us, good fun for you and give you a few new tasty things to cook at home.

Just a week ago we were hit with the news that the schools were closing and the public were being advised to distance themselves socially. It has been hard and we've had to adapt fast but we are optimistic. We're a new business with the deli opened just 10 months so we're used to adapting to what works, tweaking things and finding solutions to problems.

Recipes for our favourite dips (which happen to be vegan) and how to put it all together below. You can of course pick up these dips in the deli too if short on time and add some cheese or cured meats.

Labneh is probably the easiest cheese you can make at home and it's a great one for parties over the festive season. Who's not impressed by someone making their own cheese? It’s creamy like a cream cheese but is also tangy and adds a zing to your meal/party spread.

Labneh brings us back to Israel where you can find it served by the Druze community on the side of the road on hot flatbread fresh from a charcoal heated pan, drizzled with oil and za'a...
