Event Wrap-up: 33rd Annual "A Taste of Greece"

On June 25, 2011, in Photo Gallery, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I have talked about going to the annual Taste of Greece, at the Saint Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church for a number of years but never did. This year we had no excuse thanks to Mona Shah of Moxxe PR (@Moxxe) and Executive Chef George Kookootsedes. They put together an amazing spread of food, desserts and drink for a few of the local food bloggers. We were lucky enough to be asked to join in on the tummy-stuffing fun.

The Greek Festival is very laid back and relaxing. The food is prepared by an all volunteer team and it takes months to get prepped for this three day event. Most of the food is cooked right before you order it and you can hang out and watch if you like.

We will for sure go back. If you do not know much about Greek cuisine this would be a great place to test your palette. Here are some photos from the event:
