If there was one thing Jesus knew how to do well, it was throw a good party. In this spirit, the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church’s annual three-day food festival returns this weekend, offering authentic Greek cuisine prepared by members of the parish. A local tradition for nearly 80 years, the festival features all kinds of savory and sweet Greek dishes — pastries, baklava, diples, souvlakia, and the dessert favorite loukoumades, deep-fried dough topped with sugar and cinnamon. There’s also a full taverna offering beer and wine. Beyond food, the fest also showcases traditional Greek dancing and church tours. As the congregation advises: kali orexis! — don’t forget to work up a good appetite.
