It’s all Greek to me


…and to anyone else at Portland’s annual Greek Heritage Festival, June 25-27, at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

Food, dancing, food, crafts, food, music, food… see a pattern? Well let’s just say they have a shish-kabob recipe for 10,000.

And that’s not all: There’s lamb souvlaki, rice pilaf, Greek salad, dolmades, moussaka, and spanakopita, as well as baklava, kourabiedes, and loukomades, and everything is made by church members using authentic Greek recipes, all-natural ingredients, and love.

Now add traditional music and dancing, even performers in authentic Greek garb. And this being church sponsored, there also will be displays of icons and crosses from around the world and tours of the church.

Trust me, it’s as close to an island in the Aegean Sea as you’re going to get and still be in Maine. And one last tip: Go hungry.
