Oh, Greek food, how do we love you? Let us count the ways. Savory kabobs and gyros, hearty pastichio (aka Greek lasagna), salty kalamata olives and decadent Baklava pasties (pictured). Not to mention, goaty goodness such as feta, halloumi and saganaki cheeses; the last one is actually a battered and deep-fried cheese that’s doused in brandy and set on fire. Best. Thing. Ever!
But don’t take our word for it. Soak in the sights, the sounds and the flavors of this Mediterranean gem all weekend long as the annual A Taste of Greece festival sails into Tempe Beach Park. Starting today through Sunday, drop by and enjoy food, beer and wine, dance performances and vendor booths selling traditional Greek arts and crafts. (Not into festivals? Drop by the family-owned Greekfest in Phoenix for the finest Greek fare this side of Mykonos.) Opa!
