Asheville Greek Festival: Eat, drink and learn to cook Greek

(Mountain XPress)  A smorgasbord of Greek delicacies to tempt every palate will be part of the 28th Annual Greek Festival this weekend on the grounds of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Asheville in historic Montford. Visitors will be able to sample Greek recipes handed down through generations, all prepared fresh on-site and, fortunately, you don’t have to be able to pronounce them to enjoy them. Among the savory entrées to expect are moussaka, fried eggplant stuffed with seasoned ground beef and topped with béchamel sauce, and arni, a lamb shank slow-cooked in a tomato and vegetable sauce and served with rice pilaf. Vegetarian dishes include spanakopita, layers of paper-thin phyllo dough filled with cheeses, spinach and herbs, and dolmades, grape leaves stuffed with rice and marinated in a lemon sauce.
