Since the early 1970s, folks have flocked every fall to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation for the church's annual fall festival. They come for the music and dancing, to buy art and handicrafts and to tour the handsome 1889 church building designed by Charles E. Cassell. Yeah, right. They come for the food, and, on its 40th anniversary, the organizers have come to terms with this and have renamed the event: Formerly known as the Athenian Agora and more recently the Greek Heritage Festival, this year's edition is called the Greek Food Festival .

It begins at 11 a.m. today. "I want everything here to taste like you're in Greece, facing the Aegean with mountains at your back," said head confectioner Alice Ioannou, who then issued a three-word imperative to her pastry-makers: "Butter.

You can't cook up a Greek festival and bazaar overnight. So the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society spent days, even weeks, making thousands of pastries by hand for this weekend's Annapolis Greek Festival - the annual three-day June event held at Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church. "Greeks embrace you through food, through music and through life, and this is almost like coming into a family," said Frances Chumley, 44, who coordinates the festival's media and serves as the church school PTA president.
