Taste of Greece, Greek food and dance in Halifax

Authors experiences Greece Special Interests

At home now in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we enjoy the un-official beginning of summer at the Greek Festival. It has a bountiful selection of official Greek food and Greek dance featuring kids and adults dressed in national costume.

We enjoyed the ultimate Greek platter. Souvlakia meat kabobs which are available in pork or chicken, with yummy LEMON potatoes, and other Greek specialties: Moussaka, dolmades, spanakopita, tiropita, Greek salad, tzatziki. Served with fresh bread. Plus they have lots of Donairs! Don’t forget the Greek sweets: We loved the fingers of chocolate drizzled Flogeres (Walnuts, with walnuts, butter and spices, rolled in layers of phyllo), plus Baklava, Galaktoboureko, Kataifi, Melomakarona, Kourabiedes

The live band includes a Bouzouki, the traditional Greek Mandolin.
