The Greek dish garides saganaki, a bubbling concoction of shrimp, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and feta spiked with a shot of ouzo, was invented in the 1950s, most likely at a restaurant in a seaport like Thessaloníki.
A Venetian tradition, cicheti are small bites enjoyed as appetizers and snacks in wine bars, or bacari, all over Venice. This menu of small plates works as well for a cocktail party as it does for a casual get-together with a couple of friends. Enjoy with a glass of Italian wine or a refreshing "spriss".
