These? These are peanut butter princesses. They're layers of crispy filo dough, topped with peanut butter then coated in chocolate. [drool] At St. George's, there's a large room full of these, and baklava, and other assorted pastries that I can't pronounce, just waiting for the festivities that kick off tonight. (You already knew about those festivities, right?)
But don't fill up just on sweets. In the next building, there's an oven full of sausage in a warm bath of lemon juice—and it's all homemade this year. If you've been to Greek Fest before, you'll taste the difference.
And then there's the lamb shank. The pull-off-the-bone lamb shank. Save room for that.
Need something lighter? That's silly. But if you insist, pick up a few dolmades.
There's a lot more: gyros, Greek wine tastings, Ouzo snow cones, not to mention the non-food attractions. It all starts tonight and goes through Sunday—there'll be a crowd, so I don't recommend waiting if you want the full experience.
Oh, here's a pro tip on those pastries: If they have a black wrapper, they were made by a specialty shop in Madera. Everything else, I believe, is made in-house by volunteers. (All of it's delicious.)
