Dallas, time to get your Greek on. The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church presents the Greek Food Festival for the 58th year in a row. For those unfamiliar, the Greek Food Fest is about more than just food. Much more. It's a celebration of all things Greek. Think dancing, art, a church tour and multiple cooking demonstrations. Thanks to the Dallas Morning News, we learned this year that the growing festival started humbly as a bake sale and how attracts over 14,000 people each year.
No matter you're descent, you've probably indulged in a Gyro (Hyro? Hero?) or two in your day, and we can promise you the food here will likely top it. I'm a sucker for a good Greek salad, and their website already has me dreaming of the fresh feta, olives and Dolmas next weekend - otherwise known as grape leaves.
Cooking demos are courtesy of some of the best Greek chefs in the area, so don't be surprised if you come away with a knack for whipping up Koulouria, a traditional Greek dessert, or Tiropita, a Greek layered pastry food. We're excited to try it all!
Come ready to shop, the Agora is stocked with handmade treasures from Greek-American artists and artisans from all over the world. Save on airfare to Athens and Santorini, and stop by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church to fill your home with trinkets from abroad.
