Being that I’ve already done two other Greek festivals on this blog alone, I can’t say I expected anything different at the Grecian Food Festival. I went there to grab lunch before the Dean Martin Festival and I arrived there fairly early. To say anything about the entertainment would be unfair, since I was early.
I can talk, though, about the food.
Set at the rather beautiful Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Steubenville, Ohio, I may have expected a lot as I turned the corner. The place really is beautiful.

So, as we went down the side way, we weren’t surprised to see only a few people.
And there was…with more people.
The main serving area consisted of two lines.
“You picked the best things,” the girl told me.
And I believed her.
The galaktoboureko was different that others I’ve had. With nutmeg and cinnamon mixed in, it was almost pumkin-y. I liked it. The recipe would make a great autumn dessert – maybe even warmed up with some hot honey poured over it.
All-in-all, the Grecian Food Festival, although not so different from other Greek Festivals, did have some rather delicious food. If I ever had to live in Steubenville, I would consider joining the parish to get myself better acquainted with the cooks.
And that’s the truth.
