    These cheesy and buttery cheese straws come with a kick thanks to a touch of cayenne. If desired, omit the cayenne for a simple cheese straw recipe.

    This Greek meze is perfect for entertaining, and the pastry could not be easier to make. Serve as a nibble or starter, and enjoy the leftovers for weeks to come - they freeze well after they're baked. Just defrost and pop them in a warm oven, and you'll think they're freshly baked.

    These little morsels are so easy to make - serve warm or at room temperature for nibbles at a drinks party or eat with salad and some warm bread for quick lunch. Here I have used ham, cheese, sweetcorn and spring onion but there are endless possibilities with different fillings. You will need a non-stick mini muffin tray.

    This Greek yoghurt sauce made with cucumbers and fresh mint is a classic. Serve with kebabs, chips, crusty bread or warm pitta. You need to make this in advance but it still tastes really fresh.

    This elegant make-ahead salmon starter requires a bit of time, but is actually rather easy. You'll need a terrine. Great to make ahead for dinner parties!
