Greek Festival in New Rochelle

Holy Trinity Church on Mill Rd. is having their annual Greek Festival (last weekend, and next weekend, Sept. 14, 15, 16). I attended last weekend, and was treated to the best Moussaka of my life. I heard the Pastitsio was even better, but it sold out before I got there. There is souvlaki and gyro (which I did not taste), and there are cheese and spinach pies to be had, as well (which were very yummy). Don't forget the bakery/pastry stand on your way out- I bought some delicious cookies for my nightcap. There are a couple of rides and games, and a large tent with seating and live music, as well as an indoor bazaar, but the real reason I go is the food.

    The food sounds terrific, who caters it?

      The parishioners make the food in the large professional kitchen behind the church. I think some of them have professional creds. but I wouldn't call it catered. I should divulge that, while I am in no way affiliated with the church or festival, I am close with some of the parishioners, and know for a fact that many of them spend several days cooking around the clock to make trays and trays of food.

          You're in luck, juwee. The post is from 2007, but the festival is on again this year:
