Special Event: Yiasou Greek Festival...


My absolute favorite festival of the year!!  The food at this festival by far beats any "festival food" due to it's authentic Greek roots.  Make sure to try the loukoumades, my addiction!  If you can't make it to the festival you can still take home some of the delicious food via their "drive thru"...genius.  See below for more info about that as well as festival hours and pricing:

A Taste of Greek Tradition. The first cookbook from the Holy Trinity community of Charlotte has been nationally recognized and won the prestigious Tabasco Community Cookbook Award for the Southeast Regional division in 2005. The cookbook is the creation of the Ladies Philoptochos Society of Holy Trinity Cathedral, a philanthropic organization formed to aid the poor (Philo - friend & ptochos - poor). This 6-year project was first released at the 2004 Yiasou Festival. Many of the pastries, appetizers and entrees served at the Yiasou Festival can be found in this beautiful hard-bound, hidden spiraled cookbook. All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook have been designated for projects of the Philoptochos on local, national and international levels. A Taste of Greek Tradition can be purchased during the Yiasou Festival at the Hosanna Bookstore. Sale price is $22.00.
