A Greek feast

Annual Greek Festival offers a diner's dream

(Continued)

Many realize that and although not everyone can cook, some parishioners set up, serve and clean up, others help by making donations, sponsoring the cost of the ingredients that go into making the food to be sold in support of their church.

Although in the past the women of the parish have made the famed Greek desserts and casserole dishes like moussaka and pastichio, Housiantis said this year he’s seen the men pitching there, too.

And as the founding generation of the festival ages, Momoxelos is “starting to see new faces,” as the younger generation steps up to learn how it’s done. They’ll have to ensure their church survives, and so the throngs who attend Yankee Homecoming can enjoy this work of Greek culinary art for years to come.
