Greek Fest Chicago 2011

I love this festival but have to tell you that the vendors are on their own clock. They were suppose to start at 12:00 Noon but only about half the vendors were up and running. Too much Roditis the night before? Hey, that’s a legitimate excuse in my book.
Greek food is some of my favorite in all of Chicago and most of the major restaurants were there including my favorite – The Parthenon.

Take your pick from some of the traditional dishes. All of them look seriously easy but Greek food is slow cooked with loads of herbs and spices and lot’s of wine.

Another thing I love about the Greeks…if they don’t have it now just wrap it up and they’ll have it for breakfast!

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had leftover Gyros at 7 AM.

Bon Appetit!
